Todd & Maria in Ancaster
June 17 @ 1:30 pm – 11:55 pm
Saturday Workshops with
Maria Ford and Todd Coulthard
1:30-3:30 pm: Communicate Through Movement – Part 1
We’ll break down three modes of physical communication in West Coast Swing, then build the dance back up using these modes more effectively.
Leaders will learn how to communicate their intention more clearly to followers and how to open their leading up to encourage followers to contribute.
Followers will learn how better “read” their leaders, and will understand how best they can contribute and when.
4:00-6:00 pm: Communicate Through Movement – Part 2
Building on the new skills developed in the first workshop, we’ll develop more lead, follow, and communication skills through specific applications.
Leaders will focus on specific pattern types (and will learn one or two cool new ones).
Followers will focus on specific ideas for “play”.
Together, we’ll explore an expanded range of possibilities for partnership and communication in the dance.
$35 per 2 hr session or $60 for all 4 hrs. No pre-registration is required.
