Brush up your basic

This course is aimed at helping you to improve basic technique in both Pure balboa and Bal-Swing. We will gain more body awareness by looking into such concepts as posture, pulse, weight transfer, basic rhythms and shapes. This series is recommended for any level: beginners can build up a solid basement for further development, and advanced dancers can polish up the basic steps as well as get ideas for teaching.

 

Musicality & creativity

What does it mean to be musical? Is it more about the melody or the rhythm? How can we relate to the structure of music? Is there a way to be creative without learning specific patterns? All of these questions are going to be addressed in this series. Olga will share her ideas on musicality and how she likes playing with footwork and variations.
