Event description

Description

A two day workshop exploring and developing the Swedish polska. The course is aimed at dancers of all abilities - whether you are a seasoned polska dancer or a complete beginner - this course will offer the opportunity for everyone to develop their dancing ability. We will work together as a group to deconstruct the polska and look at the elements that make up the dance, looking at both the leading and following roles, posture, hold, balance, relationship to the music and examining other parts of specific technique.

Everyone involved in the course will be dancing with all other participants and also learning both roles in the dance (No partner required). The course will be taught by Ella Sprung, Andrew Parr and Lucy Huzzard, all three of whom have completed the year long folk dance diploma course at the Eric Sahlström Institute in Sweden.

They will be joined by Rasmus Brinck and Alexandra Nilsson from Sweden. Alexandra and Rasmus, or 'Kaffekask' are a swedish duo with strong roots in Swedish folk music from Dalarna and Uppland (counties of Sweden). With cello and nyckelharpa they interpret Swedish folk music with a clear focus on dancing.

The workshop will be 11-5 on Saturday and 10-4 on Sunday and there will also be a social dance evening on the Saturday night. You will need shoes appropriate for Swedish dance (preferably leather or other smooth soled shoes - ask us if you have any questions).

Cost: Standard price - £90 (+booking fee) Student price - £70 (+booking fee) This includes entrance to the evening event on Saturday but not accommodation. (Please do get in touch with us if money is a problem!)

Refunds- We are happy to refund 75% of your ticket price up to one month before the event. After this, we will only be able to refund 75% of your ticket if we can fill your space.
