salsa dance classes in christchurch New Zealand NEW Salsa Body Movement & Shines
Mon 6th Dec
 
Start Date 6th December 2010
Time: Mondays 8:30pm-9:30pm
For Men & Women
Course Length: 3 weeks (P.S. don't miss the first week)
Level: Beg#2, Improver, Intermediate & Beyond
3 Part course Lineup
- #1 Secrets of Body Movement
- #2 Body Movement & Shines
- #3 Afro Cuban with Shines
Salsa Shines on1 & On2
Linear Salsa On1
Body Movement is an essential part of Salsa & other latin dances such as Merengue, Cha, Zouk & Bachata. Learn body movement exercises & isolations to get the correct movement. Learn how & when to add it into shines & partnering etc. You will also learn Afro Cuban elements including how to shimmy.
What is a shine? a shine is simply when you break away from your dance partner and do footwork to the Mambo section of the music. Or for performers 'facing the audience'.
TO SHINE…OR NOT TO SHINE…?
Shines are a vital and exciting element within Salsa. When we first start salsa most of us have to get used to the whole ‘partner’ idea, which at first seems to be a strange ‘invasion of space’; After a while, we get so ‘comfortable’ with simply holding hands and tying and untying knots, that the thought of letting go and ‘shining’ on our own becomes quite confronting. We don’t know what to do with our feet or our bodies, and the shapings and ‘moods’ of some steps may be a little unfamiliar at first. However shines are really liberating! It allows the leader and follower equal possession and enjoyment of the song, without breaking the ‘partnership’ bond. To avoid them is missing out on half the experience of salsa. Shines should not overtake the dance, but it is an exciting break in patterns to watch and is great fun to do.
What Level is it?: Anyone can give it a go, however we will be aiming it to these levels:
Beg2, Improvers, Intermediate & beyond.
Partners?: No partner is needed, this is footwork only. This workshop is for Men & Ladies!

Enrolment: Not required, simply turn up, but if you are not on our database please join.
