Waltz Technique and Musicality Workshop 6:30 – 7 p.m:
A sequence of simple waltz figures will be presented, then used to illustrate:
- how to make the dance flow smoothly down the floor
- how partners take turns moving and shaping
- how to use body actions to fill up the time in the slower dramatic waltz tracks
- how to grow from executing steps towards really dancing with partner and music
We will rotate partners so it's a great way to meet everyone in attendance, and see who you might like to try with more specifically in the second half hour. Then stay for the social and enjoy finally having a full-sized floor in the city!
