Event description

Description

Dancer extraordinaire Ari Levitt returns to our valley to help bring out the smooth and sexy dancer in all of us! Workshops and events run from Friday to Sunday and feature 10 classes – 1 specifically for brand new dancers, and 2 especially for advanced dancers.

WHATS HAPPENING AND WHEN:

FRIDAY Carbondale

6:30 – 8:00 Class #1 SETTING IT FREE - AN INTRODUCTION TO “FUSION WALTZ” for Advanced Intermediate and above dancers

Fusion waltz is a beautiful dynamic free-flowing waltz form that utilizes connection & energetics more than rote steps, but can also borrow moves from latin, swing, balboa, blues, and other of your favorite dance styles and blend them into the graceful, flowing movements & rhythms that we recognize as waltz. Ari is one of the country's leading innovators in fusion waltz and has been teaching it actively in workshops throughout the country and abroad. It's easy to learn and lots of fun to dance! (CLICK HERE to see an example of fusion waltz with Ari & Alyssa).

8 – 9:30 #2 NC2 – ITS BETTER WITH FUSION - for Advanced Intermediate and above dancers

Adding some Tango, Kizomba, and salsa moves makes this beautiful smooth dance even better learn how!

SATURDAY Held at the Masonic Lodge, 901 Colorado Ave, Glenwood Springs

9:30 – 10 WARM UP –Learn how to enjoy dancing even if you struggle with musicality.

10 – 11:00 #3 NC2 "SLIDING & GLIDING" NC2 combos to get you sliding and gliding with traveling steps, and how to link them. Learn some silky smooth moves that will slide & glide you across any dance floor! Click here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6mvzy-I9Ic8

3 – 4 #5 STRETCH AND SPRING WITH BLUESY SWING - The Subtle Nuance of Stretch & Spring - this class will help to clarify how compression & extension in partnered movement works, helping you to anticipate each other’s flow, and to better understand the language of stretch, turning, traveling, spinning, and virtually every other vector of movement in dance.

4 – 5 #6 SWINGING 2 STEP - BIG SWING FOR SMALL SPACES - In this class we take our energy up a notch and explore great new ways to stretch, glide, turn, travel and play in swing, incorporating Country 2 step and Swing moves with a bit of blues too.

Perfect for both beginning dancers, or for intermediate level dancers who want to add some graceful new moves to their repertoire.

2:15 – 3:30 #10 INTRODUCTION TO SHADOW WALTZING Shadow Waltz is tandem Waltzing! It is beautifully suited to slower and mid-tempo music and will fit with all your slow Waltz and Cross-Step moves.
