Ballroom Workshops Series | Samba, Cha Cha Cha, Rumba, Jive

Ogun Da Masa Dance Company | Gasverksgatan 3b, Lund

 

This autumn we welcome you to a new concept, a series of workshops with our instructor Brigitta Nagy where you will have the chance to get a deeper insight into Latin-american ballroom dances, learning many new and more complex patterns and technique. Every month we introduce one specific dance in two workshops. The first workshop is about learning patterns and specific steps to broaden our vocabulary in ballroom dancing. In the second workshop we focus on the technical part of these patterns and steps and you'll learn the details of the footwork, body movements, posture, balance, rhythm and timing.

 

The workshops aren't dependent of one another so you don't have to take the first one to be able to participate in the second.

It's not required to sign up with a dance partner, we rotate and change couples on a regular basis during the class.

DESCRIPTION

Samba | This dance is about partying like in a carnival with a lot of travelling patterns and changing rhythms. Learn the different timing in samba and how to feel the music and use its pulsations. Have you ever heard about bounce? Without bounce you cannot dance a proper samba. Come party with us in September!

Cha cha cha | This dance is about playfulness within the couple. The mood is very vibrant and energetic, there are a lot of hip-twists and turns with elegant postures, nice frame and beautiful lines. Do you struggle with finding the rhythm? You will be amazed by the amount of cha cha cha songs you can find in many different styles of music. What about doing a proper lockstep or Cuban break? These steps require different technique in body movements - figure out how in October!

Rumba | This dance is a little bit slower than all the other Latin-american dances. This is about love, attachment within the couple and understanding each other through movements. All the moves and lines are about beauty. In style it's very similar to cha cha cha since many patterns have the same roots. However, as the music is a bit slower there is more time for proper body movements, beautiful big hip-twists and isolation. Rumba walks; the basic of everything. Sliding doors; the steps which never can be danced at the same time. Learn about connection and passion in this beautiful dance in November!

Jive | Let’s loose ourselves and enjoy a cheerful and very energetic jive. This dance has it's roots in the Swing dancing but the timing and technique is a little bit different. The main focus is on the super fast footwork, with kicks and chassés. Once you get into it you won’t stop smiling, this dance is so much about joy and happiness. Feel the rhythm, feel the beat and use the technique in a relaxed environment and happy mood. These workshops will bring light into the dark winter days in December.
