3 hour open level bootcamp in dance fundamentals
by Moni Streetsalseros (Sofia)
"Latin dances got us so quickly fascinated with partner work combinations, turns, intricate arms assemblages, lifts and other tricks. So, we immediately started learning/teaching them without asking ourselves - is there anything else before that, are there any fundamentals? After one or two years some of us start asking ourselves questions:
... why some dancers look better than other?
... what is the right position of body, arms and fingers?
... how to create soft connection with the floor?
... how to shift your body weight and transition between toes, balls, and heels?
I have been dancing salsa more than 16 years, practicing yoga and Tai Chi more than seven and classical ballet almost nine years. 2014 I graduated from university as a classical ballet teacher. I was always searching for the answers of my questions and the truth about the best dancers. After 15 years I finally found something, but yet I understand I cannot teach you to do it. The only thing I can do is to share my experience with you within the 3 hours we have, so you can see it, understand it and use that knowledge. I will not keep anything for me, will reveal all and will be ready to answer all your questions.”
