Fusion Dance Night – Special

17 November 2018, 15:00 - 23:30

fusion dance night special

We have fusion teachers Jenny & Ryan Sims visiting us from Seattle. They blend a mix of ballet, hip hop, blues, swing, tango and more to create a unique style unto their own. Ryan started training and performing with the Olympic Ballet Theatre in 2010. In 2012 he started East Coast Swing which then led him to WCS, Blues and Fusion dancing. Jenny’s love of dance took off in 1999 when she discovered Hip Hop. In early 2013 she immersed herself in Latin, Blues, and Ballroom, which later lead her to Kizomba, Zouk, Fusion, Tango and WCS. Ryan and Jenny have been teaching together since 2015 and enjoy sharing their passion for dance with others.

Afternoon workshops 15:00 – 17:30

Class 1: “Make your Axis your Ally”
Being on balance with a partner or solo is a key skill for any dancer. In this technique based class we will focus on static and dynamic balance, as well as how it feels to be on and off axis while partner dancing. We will incorporate weight sharing to achieve counter balance with partners, as well as cover the best body mechanics to sustain balance solo. Drawing from ballet and tango techniques we will delve into fun exercises and challenging moves to add to your repertoire.
Class 2: “Leans, Dips and Tricks”
In this class we will build the essential foundation of good body mechanics and physics while executing challenging and fun leans, dips and tricks. We will explore techniques to work on stabilizing and balancing your partner for the both the lead and follow. We will also work on building trust with your partner so you can both feel safe to express yourself in exquisite new ways.
