Bret & Joëlle Navarre WCS Confidential : Rhythm Intensive

Concept

          After several years of dancing & travelling, Bret & Joëlle Navarre have decided to share the tips that they use in their dancing by offering you their intensive workshop formula « WCS Confidential ». The new chapter of our workshops will talk about  Rhythm in West Coast Swing. The schedule didn't change : 4h of Workshops at each date, for a total of a 12h Intensive around a theme, where you will learn the secrets to have a great sense of rhythm : "Rhythm & Swing" (vol.1), "Rhythm & Syncopation" (vol.2) et "Rhythm & Slow Motion : Measured Movement" (vol.3)

 

Level

        Open to Intermediate to Confirmed dancers, knowing their basics and some more advanced techniques (rock'n'go, frame, stretch-compression…). To create a more intimate learning atmosphere in which we will be able to answer your questions, places are limited to the 12 first Leaders & followers to register via savemeadance.com. Registrations as a couple will be validated automatically but solo people will be placed on waiting list until somebody signs up in the opposite role.  Try to find a partner before registering!
