SUNDAY WORKSHOPS


SUNDAY OCTOBER 18

1-3 pm

“Bolero: Technique & Choreography"

Our Bolero class ran as a stand-alone class for years at our studio! Students flocked to this class looking to improve their footwork, expression, gracefulness and lyrical quality. They also adored the MUSIC, DRAMA and INTRICACY.

In this workshop you will learn and practice footwork and moves characteristic of Oriental Bolero, beautifully put together in a short choreography focusing on elegant footwork patterns, expressive arms, bolero music interpretation and more, putting together drills, transitions and a repertoire of beautiful moves.

Whether you just need to practice your Bolero skills, you miss the Bolero class, you want to explore this style or you want to add a beautiful and different choreography to your repertoire, this workshop is for you!



SUNDAY OCTOBER 25
