Workshop with Manuel Goral from Argentina

11th May 2019 @ 11:00 - 14:30 | 280DKK | Happy Feet Studio | Ørnevej 33 st





Manuel Goral from Argentina is back in town! He has visited Denmark almost every year for the last 8 years, and taught both in Copenhagen and Odense. This time Manuel will teach a 3-hour Lindy Hop workshop, divided into two topics:

Take your Swing Out technique out of the box!
The Swing Out is probably the most emblematic step in Lindy Hop. Throughout the years, several and different techniques and variations have been developed. In this workshop, we will analize each fundamental principle of every Swing Out tech, to understand them, mix them and create new versions of them.
Duration: 1:30h
4, 6 and 8 count in your phrases!
Almost every classic figure in Lindy Hop is either six or eight count. There are combinations that can extend them, but also there are ways of making them shorter. In this workshop, we will learn how to keep the "figure" of every classic or traditional step, but by changing them in different ways to make consistent phrasing with the music. By doing this, we will improve our way of interpreting Swing music and our own musicality.
Duration: 1:30h
Level for both topics: from 8 months of dancing and up
