Summer in Berlin 2018 Week 2- Saturday Workshop

Lindy Hop – Spin the Baby with Marie Voigt & Florian Klein, Saturday 21-07-2018, 17:00 – 19:00

How to combine different spin and turn techniques in a little fun routine

Marie already started dancing when she was 6 years old. Dancing for more than 10 years regularly ballet, also tasting Hip Hop, Jazz dance and Tango she could build up an excellent knowledge about body control and awareness. When she finally met Lindy Hop in 2012, it was love at first sight. Since then, she attended as many workshops, privates, classes and competitions as possible and finally started teaching 2013 regularly classes in Lindy Hop and authentic Jazz for the Dresden Hepcats and on local and international Workshops. The combination of her long dance experience and the passion for Swing dance and its rhythm is making every class enjoyable for everybody.

Florian began learning Lindy Hop because he loved music and was willing to learn the proper movements. Therefore, he was keen to keep to the musicality of the songs. He had fun from the very beginning and did not so much care about how perfect his posture was or how to show the fanciest moves. Instead, he just wanted to enjoy the dance itself and make his partner smile. Still, it is not only fun that matters. Dancing to music requires fundamentals and skills. Before starting to dance, Florian worked as a musician, which may now help him better connect the two art forms. At present, he enjoys traveling to workshops all over Europe with the aim to learn, teach, compete and dance until dawn.

We will explore different ways to listen and interact with a partner, a group, and with the space. Building upon the partnering skills of lindy hop we will work with leading and following, sharing weight, spatial awareness, musicality, reacting and interacting with our physical environment, and embodying and translating movement. We will utilize music, groove, and memory as a gateway to access our joy to move.
