Exciting Reasons to Take Class this Weekend!

Saturday, April 20th at 12pm I am teaching an intermediate/ advanced level class with Tyler Litman on Giros with Enrosques. What is that? you might ask. Giros is a general word for turns. Girar is the verb to turn. Enroscar is the verb to twist. So the class will be on turns with twists. Cool! Very.
As with most of the classes that I teach at this level there are concepts inside the figures that I like to explain and then leave you with food for twistthought and something to keep practicing. This class will be challenging and fun for the leader and for the follower. For the follower there will be more in depth technical focus on the turn or molinete. For the leader we will explore how the torso and the legs work in tandem to help execute the figure.
So the reasons:
1) to improve your overall balance, technique, and posture
2) to learn something new in a turning situation
3) to raise the level of your dancing
4) to challenge you
5) to look cool on the dance floor!
I hope I have enticed you to join us this weekend. Please RSVP as usual so I can do my best to have a group balance. And as always let me know if you have any questions.
