Beschreibung

This course will extend your repertoire by learning advanced figures, variations of figures, and individual movements that are characteristic for the respective dances. Technique aspects are covered at points where this is helpful to dance the new figures and variations smoothly, and where the technique helps to experience characteristic movements and body actions of the dances, beyond just doing steps.

Topics in Fall 2023 - Part 2 include:

  • English Tango: extend your repertoire with advanced figures that use the full spectrum of timing, from slower than slow to quicker than quick
  • Samba: improve leading & following in known figures and in new variations
  • Jive: get creative with variations of basic steps and with figures that break out of the basic patterns

Experience from at least Ballroom 1-4 is expected.

The Ballroom Open Level courses let you discover the familiar dances from Ballroom 1-6 from a new perspective. Go beyond the basic figures of the dances, and experience characteristic movements and body actions of the dances, beyond just doing steps.

Great and fun course, just the right amount of technique, variations of figures and music to practice.

The dance course strikes the perfect balance between reviewing figures, improving technique and focusing on the variety that ballroom dancing has to offer. I greatly enjoyed every session of the course & look forward to the next course! Chris is an excellent teacher!

This is a fantastic course, I have learned so much, particularly how figures can be combined, when they can be danced, and how to dance them well. I also really enjoyed the explanations of concepts like swing and different energies of the steps within figures. Chris brings so much positive energy and happiness to his classes, which makes it even more enjoyable to learn and improve. There was also lots of individual feedback and input from the class.

The Quickstep course was super fun, we learned a good amount of figures and had time to practice them. We also learned a bit about the 'character' of the dance.

Chris does a very good job at explaining difficult figures/variations by first teaching more simple versions to then make it easier to learn the juicy stuff.

I enjoyed this course, we looked as many variations that we’ll be able to use during the open dancing.

Very nice introduction to Polka, in particular for everyone who joined the trip to Vienna where we could dance quite a few Polkas.

Chris hat ein grosses Theoriewissen und streut es in guten Maße in seine Kurse ein. Nicht zu viel, nicht zu wenig, gerade genug dass es interessant ist, man nicht nur die Schritte lernt, sondern auch lernt wie sie zusammen spielen sollen, und was sich auf andere Tänze übertragen lässt.
