Popis kurzů a témat

Lindy Hop 1

As the name already suggests, it is the introduction to the Lindy Hop dance. It is for all who have never danced it before or visited the social a few times and would like to learn what they have seen there. You will learn the basic moves and steps that should be enough for you to enjoy dancing at a social, but it should not be too much for your head to start spinning. Simply put – an ideal slow start!

Musicality

Lindy Hop 5

Know yourself – In this course you will not learn any new moves, but work on what you already know, or put differently, you do not know. We will work in groups and together explore Lindy possibilities. Be prepared that sometimes it will be hard work and out of our comfort zone.

Tailored for you – course tailored for you. Based on our feedback and your wishes, we will focus on your curent needs.

RoutinesCouples routines popular in the swing dance world. Choreographies that were created by dancers at a place where Lindy Hop started – Savoy Ballroom.

Focus

If you feel that you would like to work on your dancing and you are already Lindy Hop 5 classes, you can contact Janča (email address: mechurova.ja@gmail.com, or you can contact her in any other way) and she will talk things through with you 😉.

Vision and goals of Focus:

-To reach an international level advanced + (from out teachers’ perspective), broaden your knowledge and dancing repertoir, better your technique, visual and social aspect of the dance
-Individual work of our students, discovering one’s own style and technique, self-reflexion
-Destroying stereotypes and finding a new perspective- out of the box, out of the comfort zone
– The teacher leads students towards discovering things on their own, provides inspiration
– The group is active, brings new topics, ideas and inspirations
-Mastering of the opposite role lead/follow (Level LH4)

What is expected when entering?

-Sufficient dancing experience (from teachers’ perspective) – technique, dancing repertoir, flow, rhythm, etc.
-Students who dance actively and work on their dancing (especially on Lindy)
-Regular attendance
-Basic knowledge of the opposiete role lead/follow (swing-out = level LH3)
-Dancing horizon, student’s thinking when dancing is taken intou account, their presupposition to self-studing and overall attitude towards dancing
-The will to work hard, train and improve, self-discipline

Everybody leads everybody follows

Leading or following? Mainly dancing! Learn to lead as a leader, perceive as a follower and find out what it is like for the other one. You will learn to use both sides of your body equally, which will lead to perfecting your moves. Suitable for all levels from LH3. If you have already attended the course, you will learn new things. If not, you will learn new things very fast – it will be a piece of cake.

Balboa

Balboa Beginners – For all who have finished Lindy Hop 2 and would like to broaden their dancing repertoir. In this course you will learn how balboa works, the basic step, some turns and feints! Music is getting faster and there is less space on the dance floor? Ideal time for some Balboa dancing! Created in 1920s, Balboa is danced in a closer position and is characterized by the swift tempo, quickly and beautifully spinning follows and attractive moves.

Balboa Pre-IntermediateBalboa Pre-intermediate follows Balboa Beginners. We will continue in improving the basic moves and continually add new techniques, moves and combos.

Balboa IntermediateThis course is for all who feel they are intermediate Balboa dancers. We will try new effective moves, improve and perfect the technique and work on Pure Bal dancing.

Balboa AdvancedWe will try to break the smooth bal moves, play with them and make them better. We will focus more on creativity, how to change the moves we already knoe, connect movements with the dance floor and try to enjoy the moves you have been using for some time. To enter this course, you should be able to dance to a faster tempo, master well-known techniques and moves (toss-out variations, swivels, out & in’s), and be able to play with footwork variations.

Charleston

Charleston 1 – koukni pod Lindy Hop 3 🙂

Charleston 2This course is a direct continuation of Lindy Hop 3 – Charleston 1. More advanced variations, a review of basics and much more will be taught in the course! The only prerequisite is to have attended the already mentioned Lindy Hop 3 – Charleston 1 and be familiar with hand to hand, basic and tandem charleston.

Charleston 3 – Popis brzy doplníme 😉

Shag

Collegiate & St. Louis Shag 1 – Základy tance Collegiate Shag (3 lekce) a St.Louis Shag (3 lekce). V kurzu vám ukážeme základní rytmy, prvky a vlastně vše pro to, abyste si oba tance mohli zatančit na tančírně. Tančit budeme jak na Swingovou, tak hlavně na Rhythm & Bluesovou hudbu.

Collegiate Shag 2 – V tomto kurzu budeme tancovat jen Collegiate Shag. Budeme pokračovat v tom, co jste se naučili v kurzu Shag 1 v poslední vlně anebo ve vlne před vánocemi. Kurz je tedy určený pro ty, kdo mají za sebou už nejaké základy.

Shag 3 – TBA

Slow Dancing

Slow Dancing 1 – Kurz je určený pro všechny, kdo mají za sebou LH3. Chcete se na parketu cítit komfortně, když se tempo hudby zpomalí? Chcete zlepšit svoji flow při tanci (lindy, slow bal i blues)? Potom je tento kurz právě pro Vás! Dokonce věříme, že schopnosti získané na tomto kurzu zlepší výraz Vašeho tance obecně :-).

No Swing

Do not expect ANY swing in this course! Janča called for a support from different dance styles. In the first two weeks you can look forward to solo modern dance (elements of modern ballet, jazz, contemporary dance, etc), which will be taught by Lenka. In the next two lessons we will have a look at folklore couples dances with Honza and the last two lessons will be with Tess, who will go through dances such as street dance/ hip hop/ house, etc. You can learn more about the teachers in the FB posts, they are all experienced teachers and mainly great and easy-going people. The course will be a mix of solo and pair dancing, that’s why we recommend registering with a partner. The course is set for people who have been swing dancing for longer (LH5+).

Aerials

Aerials 1 – V kurzu se budeme učit základy taneční akrobacie s důrazem na techniku a connection s partnerem, abyste byli schopni naučené airstepy použít v tanci. Kurz půjde od základů, ale určitě bude užitečný i těm, kteří u nás airstepy absolvovali dříve.

Důležité

Na kurz je nutné přihlásit se s partnerem, se kterým absolvujete celý kurz. Ideální je, pokud jste na sebe tanečně zvyklí a partnerovi důvěřujete. Během lekcí partnery nestřídáme. Berte v potaz, že vedlejším produktem trénování airstepů můžou být drobné odřeniny a modřiny. Vzhledem k povaze kurzu nedoporučujeme hledat náhradu za partnera, který se nebude moct zúčastnit některé z lekcí.

Minimální úroveň tanečníků: absolvované alespoň 2 kurzy LH2

Aerials 2 – TBA

Aerials Intensive – Nejedná se o klasický kurz airstepů, ale o společný prostor pro trénování a sdílení informací s ostatními. Je určen pro všechny, kteří mají za sebou jakýkoliv kurz airstepů. Na tomto tréninku je možné trénovat airstepy z kurzů, cvičit nový airstep, učit se kombo do choreografie, apod.
Každá lekce začne společnou rozcvičkou a následně každý pár může pracovat na libovolném svém materiálu. K dispozici budou lektoři, kteří mohou poradit s trénovaným materiálem nebo nějaký doporučit.
Stejně jako na klasický kurz airstepů je třeba se hlásit s partnerem.

 

 

Solo

Solo 1 – Seznámení se základními sólo prvky a jejich propojení v tanci, sólová improvizace, rytmická cvičení, krok z komfortní zóny vstříc svobodě a kreativitě!

Dance Solo – TBA

Blues Solo – TBA

Shag Open Training – Prostor pro všechny příznivce collegiate shagu, kteří na sobě chtějí makat i mimo tradiční lekce. Komunitou vedené tréningy, na kterých si sami volíme čemu se budeme věnovat.
