Monday

Oct 5
20:00 PESO / WEIGHT
Caminata, changing system and changing 'lanes'. Developing the sensation of moving from the weight, to generate movement and find fluidity and facility.

Tuesday

Oct 6
20:00 EXPANSION
Precise, compact engaches for the dancefloor. Using the movement of the weight to lead and follow, in a comfortable closed embrace.

Wednesday

Oct 7
20:00 FLEXION
Pivots. Taking the ocho as a key element of the dance, we will work with internal spirals and the discharge of weight to generate pivots without unnecessary.

Thursday

Oct 8
20:00 AXIS & IMPULSE
Giros/turns. Constructing my own axis, and finding my partner’s; understanding the code of the turn to coordinate our movements; generating an impulse and resolving that energy smoothly to continue dancing.

Friday

Oct 9
20:00 IMPROVISATION + TECHNIQUE
Combinations of elements; every step as a starting point. Summarising our week’s work, using the movement of the weight and the technique we have practiced as tools in improvisation. We can add sacadas to our turns, enganches to our sacadas - and use our internal compass to return to the direction of the dancefloor, recover the system, and continue!

14:30 SEMINAR

From the ground up: The way we step Going deep into each step from a biomechanical perspective to find different dynamics - speed when we need it, and smoothness when we choose it.

The technique of transforming through the music.Developing the technical and biomechanical tools to create varied and subtle qualities of movement as we interpret different orchestras.

Sunday

Oct 11
14:30 SEMINAR

Transitions between circular and linear movements on the dancefloor. Technical and biomechanical tools to generate circularity from internal movements - without cutting our connection, and with harmony in the embrace through each transition.

Adornos / Embellishments: The cherry on the cake Developing rhythmical and melodic embellishments for both roles; adding detail from within the music, taking our time and listening to each other.We will learn embellishments which are usable, satisfying and can be adapted to fit your dance!
