We have created a special fun routine aiming to take you a sidestep out of your comfort zone and to give you some confidence to move your body to music.
(This workshop will be fast paced and based on footwork and body movements more suited towards experienced dancers. The content will sit outside of the usual partner dynamics and will involve solo movement primarily.
All levels are welcome to give it a go as there will be techniques that important for everyone to learn)
