STUDIO 8 presents...


by Pedro Fonseca

In this workshop we will explore the floor (the base of support for our dance), the feet (the base of support of our body) and the connection between the two, in order to dig Salsa rhythm and incorporate it into our body.

In the first part of this workshop, we will explore the feet-floor interaction as an essential cyclic path of energy in dance. We will discover how the feet can give and receive energy to and from the floor and how this interaction can be used to consciously support our body in Salsa dancing.

In the second part of the workshop we will explore the hidden rhythms in Salsa music and the tools to connect your feet with the music... We will dig deep into our body to create echos of the rhythm behind the music...

DATE: 30-Aug-2014

TIME: 4 pm to 5.30 pm

VENUE: STUDIO 8 - Sirens, 6 Victoria St., Hobart

PRICE: $20


- No dance experience required (open level)

- Bring comfortable clothes (trousers and long sleeve top recommended) and a pair of socks (you will be dancing on your feet).
