Imp- Smooth it Down and Break some RulesI believe most people aspire to a smoother style where dancers seamless shift from one move to the next in complete balance with each other and the music.Dancing in a smooth, fluid way looks and feels great, but that’s just the start of it:- You can dance faster- Dance in smaller space- Dance to slower tracks- Re vitalise you same ‘ol movesThere are several methods used in this course. Paradoxically, one way to get really smooth is to get crisp. Hitting that beat and timing events with precision. Another way is to draw upon the concept of Flow and Peak State.Of course you never only dance smooth. So the Sharpening up serves a second purpose.Sometimes we define rules by breaking them and I group all the rule breaking techniques into a group of moves called Garnish, as in the pretty stuff on the edge of the dish.It includes:- Freezes- Dips 'n drops (doing them safely)- Six beat moves (multiple spins and footwork)- Transition stepsThere's loads of useful stuff on this course so come and enjoy :-)
