MORE ABOUT THE CLASSES
Want to know more what the classes are about? No problem, Here a more detailed explanation:
GAME OF TORQUES: With less imagination, this class can be called "GANCHOS and SACADAS" or "LEG INTERACTIONS", but we always face our choreography classes as a game, and in this case the final result (we are all winners in our games) depends on weight changes, torsions and timing. Lots of visual effects, but you need to know the technique underneath.
DANCING TO D'ARIENZO: Rhythmic music, and D'Arienzo in particular can not be danced with the same mind set as more melodic songs. We will use familiar steps and twist them to fit the music and the spirit of "El Rey del Compás"
MUJER: This is not an embellishment workshop (too often they are presented as women's technique). April believes that to become the best dancers we can be, we must understand the techniques to lead and follow movement, and once this is understood and learned, you can have the capability to inspire and be inspired by adding musicality and life to your dance and your partner's dance through the comfort of your movement and focus on the music, your partner, and the space around the two of you.
Angel and April will be available for private instruction on a limited basis.
