Body Movement and Isolation

True dancing comes through expression, and expression is fully possible only when the body becomes your instrument to play with. This course will deal exactly with that – with our body as our instrument for dancing. What parts can be moved? In which ways can we move these parts? How can we make the movement clean and expressive?

We will get to know our body, and its different parts then test what movements our wondrous body offers us. We will work on improving the quality of our movement & isolation based on your individual ability.

To put it to practice each lesson we will perform a series of exercises that will challenge our acquired skills. These challenges will also let you practice or introduce you to many various sub dances of salsa from Afrocuban dances through contemporary dance, salsa, traditional dances, reggaeton and more…

Who is it for?

The level of the course is suitable for intermediate-advanced.

It can be done however at any level as body movement is really a journey that has no point of beginning and end. Complete novices to dance might find the course too challenging but dancers with a few months of experience or intermediate dancers will get to know many new isolations and challenge the body. Advanced dancers might be introduced to some new isolations and understand their bodies better, perfect their movement, and have difficult versions of each challenge. I will try my best to be personal and match the challenges to the level of the student.

The course is intended for both men and women, most exercises will be unisex with a couple of touches that might be different for lady style or men’s style.

Even though the underline subjects are Salsa and Cuban dances, body movement and isolation is a general topics and might be appropriate for all kinds of dancers.
