Description

The Slox Foxtrot can be considered as the quintessential English ballroom dance. Its long, flowing movements create a very elegant appearance and an impression of continuous progression. This is supported by performing turning figures in a seemingly casual manner without putting the focus on the rotary action.

In this workshop, we cover variations of a turning action that is very typical for the slowfox, the so-called heel turn. We give special attention to the position after the turn: inside, outside, promenade? And how to lead the different cases or recognize them as a follower?

In the workshop, there will be enough time to, on the one hand, revisit the basics of the slowfox and, on the other hand, to give input on advanced topics such as technique or musicality. Thus, you are welcome to join independently of your prior level of knowledge of slowfox if you have at least approximately 1 year of general dancing experience.

20. Feb. 2024, 20:08 Quickstep Basic Jumping Figures with Christoph HellingsRoom: Hönggerberg, Raum der Stille
Chris gestaltet seine Kurse und Workshops immer so lehrreich und gleichzeitig so spaßig.
19. Feb. 2024, 11:08 Quickstep Basic Jumping Figures with Christoph HellingsRoom: Hönggerberg, Raum der Stille
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.
12. Feb. 2024, 09:02 Cha Cha New Yorker Variations with Christoph HellingsRoom: Hönggerberg, Raum der Stille
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.
09. Feb. 2024, 10:01 Cha Cha New Yorker Variations with Christoph HellingsRoom: Hönggerberg, Raum der Stille
I enjoyed this course, we looked as many variations that we’ll be able to use during the open dancing.

Chris is a great teacher & finds the perfect balance between technique that you need, fun figures and challenges!
07. Feb. 2024, 15:59 Polka with Christoph HellingsRoom: Hönggerberg, Raum der Stille
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.

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

Nice course for begineers, the progression is a bit fast, but for sure is not boring. I would say a proper introduction to dancing.
27. Oct. 2023, 15:04 Ballroom Open Level with Christoph HellingsRoom: Hönggerberg, Raum der Stille
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!
27. Oct. 2023, 14:52 Ballroom Open Level with Christoph HellingsRoom: Hönggerberg, Raum der Stille
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.
