Thursday 12 October: Eurosession with a Scandi dance workshop

Plus we’ve an exciting pre-session workshop with two stars of the UK Scandi dance teaching scene, Ella and Lucy, from the Third Beat Collective. After the workshop we’ll continue with our usual Eurosession of offers and requests.

About the workshop
Our workshop leaders Ella Sprung and Lucy Huzzard spent a year in Sweden, benefiting from some of the best traditional dance teaching in Sweden, and we are pleased to have this opportunity to have their dance expertise and musicianship at Eurosession. They will extend our skills and confidence in one of the extended features of Scandinavian turning dances, so not focusing on the polska but rather on the bakmes – an additional element that can bring a sense of elasticity, balance and togetherness to your turn. No previous experience necessary.
No need to bring a partner. But do bring smooth-soled shoes that can turn easily.

Caring for others
Eurosession is a welcoming community and we want everyone to feel safe.  Please stay home if you feel unwell.

We suggest a £5 donation for the workshop, although any extra helps us to keep Eurosession inclusive and offer fair rates to teachers and musicians. We accept cash on the day, or via PayPal (see our donations page).

See you soon,
