Description

Maxime & Torri are world champion West Coast Swing dancers, based in France. This all level, competition focussed bootcamp will be taught in English AND French. Friday night: 45 minute class and social dancing from all night. Saturday: Class 1: 10:00 - 11:30 Technique A group class where Maxime & Torri will explain what defines “good technique” and teach the elements of basic technique and how to demonstrate this in a competition situation. This class is appropriate for all levels and there will be time at the end for a Q&A on your specific technique questions. Class 2: 11:45 - 1:15 Musicality A key component of WCS is musicality. It is one of the defining things that separates this dance from others. This class will be a mixture of lecture and practical application and will focus on everything from the basics of musicality (where is that break?) to showmanship in competition and how to shine without looking like an idiot! Suitable for all levels, as concepts can be applied from Novice through to All-Star. LUNCH Class 3: 2:15 - 3:45 J&J Critique Time to get out on the floor and get real time feedback from Maxime and Torri! If you have ever wondered what goes through the judges’ heads while they are watching you, now is the time you can find out! A group learning exercise, with feedback being useful and applicable to the whole group, even if you are not the one being critiqued at that time. One of the most valuable opportunities you will get to improve your dancing. SHORT BREAK Class 4: 4:00 - 5:00 Q&A with Maxime & Torri You’ve talked and practiced technique, you’ve worked on musicality and showmanship/show-womanship and you’ve had your dancing critiqued and learned from things your peers are doing on the dance floor… but still, you have questions! How do you recover from a mistake? What do you do if your partner is off time? Is the corner really the WORST place to end up during prelims? Can you explain what the judges are looking for in Advanced vs Intermediate J&J? Does what you wear for comps really matter? How do you deal with THAT partner, when you just don’t ‘get’ each other? And whatever else is on your mind! DINNER BREAK Class 5: 7:30 - 8:15 West Coast Swing in 2017 Maxime & Torri teach an all level class on how to update your Swing for ‘17. Social dance from 8:15pm onwards.
