Content and Approach
An exploration of walk and turns, transfer of weight, posture, axis and core work. Drills and concepts designed to create better posture, quality of movement and musicality. All aimed towards achieving better connection with our leaders and a juicier dance experience! 

This is not a cookie-cutter approach. At the beginning of the workshop Sophia will dance with each participant and then tailor the workshop to best suit each individual and the group as a whole, covering aspects of any of the following:
  • Balance
  • Posture - postural alignment and integrity, dissociation and isolation
  • walking and pivoting technique
  • Decoration and musicality
  • Connection - with yourself and partner
  • The right mind-set and attitude for following
Ranging from 1 - 2 hours according number of participants:
  • 1 hour (1 - 2 participants)
  • 2 hours (3 - 4 participants)
Investment: $45
