join us on

We will work on the key aspect of technique: posture , being grounded , roll of the hips, balance, communication, music, pivot, rotational moves, etc.
with the aim to develop further a grounded, graceful, dynamic, powerful and sensitive way of dancing

  • This is an opportunity to deeper the understanding of the way you move and you could move.
  • A chance, to be guide in a precise, inspirational way the use of the "hips" in movement, a concept that radically change the way I move in the last few years.
  • Communication
  • The clear use of the upper body, in the rolls of leading and following, without compromising your posture, balance and ground.
  • And further more, technique about rotational moves, pivot, giro technique, walking, leading and following.
  • You mainly work alone and occasionally we will do something in couples,

All this in an friendly-welcome environment.

Last year we a run our first Intensive Weekend Workshops focus on Technique, it was inspiring to see so many people taking part and with so much willing to learn.

My thoughts and why to organise this..
For years, every time when I go to Argentina, I take part in Corina de la Rosa technique classes and some private classes. They are inspirational and it is the Teacher who has been guiding me and help to refine posture, the roll of the hips , being grounded.

What ever I learnt and develop all this years I go big extend to share with student and dancers but usually is one class here and then, however I think would be amazing opportunity for dancers to spent a whole weekend focusing in technique, refining the way we move.
