Feminine, sexy and fierce
Put on a new you: Change your posture. Change your walk. Change your dance style. Change your attitude. Find balance. Be confident. Flirt with your body.
In this workshop, we are fusing feminine Street Jazz Moves with flowing, cool and challenging Floorwork Moves in high heels. A strong focus is on the ability to move and perform in high heels and to expand the movement repertory. This workshop is aimed at all those who would like to incorporate their femininity into dance and accept the challenge in high heels.
Wearing high shoes changes your appearance, your style, your posture and your attitude. Finding the right balance in heels requires training and knowledge about the centre of the body as well as the proper positioning of the legs. Learn how to consciously engage your movements in heels, flirt with your own dance moves. Content of the workshop includes: techniques of basic steps in connection with arm variations (coordination), touches, Body Waves, Leg Waves, Headrolls, Hairflips, Hip Moves, rolls and poses.
Each unit combines the learned elements in a Street Jazz choreography in high heels. Men are welcome too!
Please bring: High Heels (Character Shoes, Pumps, Stilettos, Boots) and knee pads, long shirt is optional.
OTHER WORKSHOPS OF Conny Aitzetmueller
Wanna go upside down? Wanna dance?
Pole dance is one of the trendiest sports in recent years and is suitable for every fitness level and body type. The combination of dance and workout is a unique way to improve posture and fitness.
The use of bodyweight and different dynamics for spins, different grips, pressure points for poses, getting upside down, as well as the different Pole dance styles such as AcroPole (with partners), Showgirl-Moves and Contemporary Pole will be explored. The focus is on spins, climbs, floor work combined with contemporary dance technique. We use the pole as a prop to expand our movement repertory and to redefine our own movement vocabulary.
Acrobatics play an important role, but the focus is always on dancing. Combinations to music enrich the training at the pole. Pole dance makes you all of this: strong, sexy, feminine, cool, elegant and is challenging.
This class is open to dancers beginning Pole dance and is still a challenge for intermediate Pole dancers who want to dig deeper into the art of movement and understand the foundations of body alignment and expression. Either previous experience in dance or in Pole dance is required.
