In this workshop we'll explore our personal space and its borders while dancing. It's a workshop for anybody who wishes to learn about themself and their patterns of behaviour (in dance, and maybe in life generally?).

Workshop: Festival skills: optimize the use of dance space

How to avoid injuries in bourrées and spirals in jigs and cercles? How to solve waltz traffic jams? How can we free up extra space for all dancers?

Better floor management can make the dance experience a lot nicer for everybody. Most dancers have basic skills that give nice results on small or medium dance floors, but lack the advanced skills that are needed on crowded festivals. Koen Dhondt proposes interesting exercises and practical tips to share with all of you.

And if you think you have nothing to learn on this topic, well ... then you should definitely come to this workshop!

Workshop: Active following
By Maria & Francesco
Sunday | 12:00

A workshop which is aimed at improving sensitivity towards music and partner. The goal is double: on one hand learning to improvise by following the music, on the other hand activating the listening skills of the leader and the initiative skills of the follower without having to change roles during the dance.

In its first part, we will improve the transmission of information from ears to feet, empowering both interpretation skills for leaders and listening techniques for followers. In the second part, we teach to leaders to receive informations and to followers to take initiatives. The aim is, without entering into the co-leading, to create a dance that is more like a conversation than a monologue.
