We have workshops and a Dinner Dance planned for the 13th April. Kiwi WCS champions Ani Fuller and Eric Gray will be our guests and main workshop teachers. You can attend one or more workshops and/or the Dinner Dance but you need to book through Eventbrite. The most popular option so far is the Dinner Dance and Two workshop deal at $149 plus Eventbrite fee. http://kiwikonnection.eventbrite.com.au/
The Saturday night Dinner Dance is at Joey's Kitchen /restaurant at Watson for Tickets are limited to maximise floor space! I will close off the Dinner Dance sales when numbers hit 40. Admission price includes drinks until the kitty runs dry! Last time it was 11pm :-)
There are four workshops on the Saturday and the content of each workshop is provided below. The workshops will be held at the Southern Cross Club in Turner. They are incremental by nature suiting Novice Dancers through to Continuing level/ Intermediate students. Each workshop will be stand-alone.
11am: Mark and Karolina will run a Transition to Continuing Level workshop starting from 11am to 1pm. We will concentrate on the techniques and attributes you will need to transition from the Beginner level to Continuing level classes. This workshop is aimed at our 2013 intake.
Ani and Eric will be doing three workshops on Saturday afternoon. I have a two page workshop description you can request at class for a full rundown on the curriculum.
Starting at 1:30pm - WS1: The Kiwi Konnection - Connecting with Your Partner - the importance of connection, understanding the &a1, how to read your partner, maintaining ebb & flow in your dancing without getting tired, being a responsible lead and a fantastic follow, adding projection into your dance. (This workshop will be suitable for regular Beginner level dancers and up.)
2:45pm WS2: Shapes - more options than you think. Shaping both as individuals and as partners is the theme of this workshop. Level changes, slot changes, body shaping, even hairography! Suitable for Continuing level students.
4:00pm WS3: Centre! Six letters that will change your world! More of a patterns workshop but still working on techniques including stealing momentum from your partner, taking a free ride from your partner's energy, working it in close. Suitable for Continuing level dancers.
