Teacher-Led WarmUp focuses on joint release with breath, spatial awareness, and matching proprioception for Switch technique across dance styles.
--8:15pm FACILITATED PRACTICE.
--Partners change every 2 songs. Shift from "switching" (an unprepared moment of roletrade action) to the Mindset of Dancing Switch: a constant throughout every dance with all partners. In these Practice Sessions, we work all 3 Switch skills: Follow, Lead, Roletrades. We learn the interdependent proprioception that makes Dancing Switch smooth and clear with consistency.
--Facilitators answer questions/sidecoach. Increased Spatial Awareness for Navigation is emphasized during Practice for better roletrades across styles. Event participation is gender-neutral, LGBT-inclusive, we work with everybody to even up our 3 skillsets.
--SDS DJs Electronic Music ~60bpm that supports Fusion, Blues and Tango dancing: AltPop, R&B, ElectroTango, TripHop, Trap. This team-oriented practice environment encourages 4Person Practice Teams. Get new ideas during brief Facilitated Show & Tell: Practice Partners show their latest discoveries in Switch Roletrades & Styling so we all exchange the wins of our evolution Dancing Switch.
