Thursday 11 July: Mazurka workshop and Eurosession

For our July workshop we’re offering a mazurka workshop to make ready for the summer festivals, with tips for both beginners and experienced dancers; come dance, come play

Mazurka magic…

We’ll include aspects of leading, following, and improvisation, particularly paying attention to hips and middles, and give everyone a chance to a chance to consolidate steps and style. The mazurka is popular across France, Belgium, and beyond, including within the UK balfolk scene. It can be funky and fun, or mysterious and magical, but at its essence, it’s an intimate couple dance, with an intriguing lilt. We’ll include aspects of leading, following, and improvisation, particularly paying attention to hips and middles, and give everyone a chance to a chance to consolidate steps and style.

The workshop will start at 8pm, to be followed at 9pm by our usual open eurosession for tune offers and dance requests. The venue is upstairs in Shakespeares. All are welcome, donations requested.
