Olga Seleznova & Denis Lutsko - Blues Dance Workshop

We are partnering two of Ukraine’s lovely dancers, Denis Lutsko and our very own Olga Seleznova. Save the 13th & 14th of April in your dance calendars. It’s a blues dance workshop not to be missed!

Registration will open on Tuesday 5th of March at 9pm. All payments must be received before 9th of April.

Workshop Class Descriptions:

For this workshop we have some exciting topics to explore with you! Olga and Denis, during the weekend, will be working on:
  • Solo movement focusing on isolations and how to apply them to your partner dancing in a musical way.
  • Plenty of partnered moves to add to you vocabulary!
  • Balance throughout the dance with special attention to turns.
  • Body control for slower movements and weight shifts.
We hope you’ll walk away inspired to develop your body movement, adding more control and flourish in solo and partner dancing!

“Damn Right, I've Got The Blues”:
This level is aimed for dancers that have attended at least 4 Level 1 classes and are familiar with the basic steps. Plenty of time to meet this requirement before the workshop.
