Workshop descriptions

Descriptions will be updated soon

Date: Monday, 1st of July

Time: 17.30 – 19.30

Teachers: Xavier & Christine

Price: 250kr

Description: The world’s best musical has often been called the 1952 musical-comedy Singin’ the Rain. However, the song is from 1929 and is a Broadway swing tune that has been included in all kinds of contexts and was also named to be in 3rd place among the 100 most important songs of 100 years.

In the Swing era, musical artists could swing, tap dance, sing and perform – AT THE SAME TIME.

In this workshop you can try yourself and do the whole “shebang”! In a fun and cozy atmosphere, you learn the song and work with swing phrasing, learn soft-shoe steps and swing your umbrella with them.

Level:
singing level: beginner to advanced
dance level: lindy2, tap2, or similar, to advanced

Date: Tuesday, 2nd of July

Teachers: Sandrine & Johan

Time: 19.00 – 21.00

Price: 250kr

Description: Lindy hop is a rhythmical dance. Learn to dance with new rhythms.

Level: Open level. You need to know how to dance 6 count basic with triple steps

Date: Wednesday 3rd of July

Teacher: Lara

Time: 18.00-20.00

Price: 250kr

Description: Welcome to Followers Only Balboa workshop, where all the focus is on you, followers, without partners. During the workshop we will elaborate on applying new rhythms to known figures. As you don’t need a partner, you will have time to focus on your own needs and likes. You will be introduced to specific footwork, which will function as a base for your own exploration and playfulness in the future. Lara will prepare a program, but you are encouraged to prepare questions and frustrations you would like Lara to address – these can be sent directly to us.

Level: You can attend the workshop if you attended Bal Lab class at Happy Feet Studio this round or if you are comfortable with dancing Balboa on your own without a partner (besides basics, you know how to enter and exit Lollies, Swivels, Throw Out, and Out & Ins).

Date: Thursday 4th of July

Teachers: Niomi & Patricia

Time: 17.30-19.30

Price: 250kr

Description: Leading and following are completely different experiences, both roles having their own unique challenges and joys. In this workshop you get to try the other side of the equation, allowing you to get a better understanding of the dance as a whole. The workshop is only for people who already have a good understanding of either leading or following and who want to try to swap roles. So while everyone will be new to their roles, the course will progress a lot faster than a normal beginners workshop, since rhythm and connection techniques will be concepts familiar to everyone participating.

Level: Swing 5 and up (i.e. min. 10 months of swing dance experience)

 

Date: Thursday 4th of July

Teacher: Jordan

Time: 20:00-21:30

Price: 190kr

Description: Light-hearted, high-spirited, and full of joy experience in a class that is built to accommodate both total beginners up to dancers with a bit more experience. Old school Solo Jazz is built upon the African American dance tradition from the 1920’s until the 1940’s and we’ll be dancing it to big band swing music. You will dance solo but yet at the same time together in a group with many other dancers. And immerse yourselves into the extraordinary feelings the jam circle provides.

Level: Open level (all levels are welcome)
