Private American Smooth and Rhythm Sessions

  • American Smooth – Waltz, Slow Foxtrot, Tango, Viennese Waltz
  • American Rhythm – Cha Cha, Rumba, Samba, Bolero, Swing

Dance is not all about steps!  It’s the knowledge and understanding of correct alignment, posture, joints: structure and range of movement in relation to the dancer and the body in action. It’s about the fitness components of strength, muscular endurance, cardiovascular endurance, flexibility, agility and how to develop these through training principles. It’s the technical skills specific to a particular style/genre of dance being studied. The performance skills of focus, musicality, emphasis, timing, phrasing.

It’s about how to communicate and interpret the dance idea through, projection, characterisation and focus about performing with others: awareness, sensitivity, contact, use of space, timing and safe practice and our team hope you learn all this from their classes and much more……..
