This workshop aims to become aware of our axis, to control it in order to be able to leave it with confidence when the movements and dance elements allow it. Additionally, we will learn what to do with the free leg while dancing off axis.
In the first part we will deal with colgadas, which are dance elements with increased distance from partner to partner, which can be danced in different positions (e.g. ochos, caminada, etc.).
In the second part we will deal with Volcadas. This involves movements in which you “tilt” off the axis, in the direction of your partner.
Both elements are best known as ‘modern’ and large dance elements, but volcadas and colgadas can also be danced beautifully as small off-axis movements, making them wonderful to dance on a crowded dance floor.
