Unlock the magical mazurka, and join some inventive festive spirits down the pub
About the evening:
To help some of our newish participants get the most from Eurosession and balfolk, this dance workshop will focus on unlocking the secrets of the magical mazurka. All feet welcome (experienced or otherwise) to help us get everyone moving…
After the workshop we’ll continue the evening with a festive feel, slipping in as many seasonal tunes as we can manage to dance as we can manage to pair with a traditional dance from elsewhere in Europe. So we encourage musicians to get your merry thinking caps on and bring some seasonal tunes to start off the festive season with good cheer!
About the workshop
The mazurka is a beautiful and intriguing couple dance; with a marvellous and mesmerising lilt and potential for twisting momentum or blues style undulations. The workshop will demonstrate and explain its mysteries, and provide variations for those who are already initiated!. You can expect to experience euphoria at unlocking the secrets of the mazurka rhythm, tune your responsiveness to your partner, and make new neural connections along the way. Bring shoes that turn easily.
This workshop is brought to you with teaching from Susannah Diamond, and music from Jo Veal.
