This weekend is going to be so special! You’ll form small teams of 2-3 people and during the weekend you’ll work within your teams to create 30-Second Showcases. In your classes with Clàudia Fonte from Barcelona you’ll learn important concepts about rhythm, flow, musicality and how to interact with others in solo dance – all the tools you need to create a magical moment with friends. Besides the classes you’ll get plenty of time to work with your team and polish your 30-Second Showcase in a parallel room. Don’t postpone implementing class content to a distant future, because this weekend you have the space, the people and a goal: An amazing performance experience and memento with your showcase at the end!

More About Clàudia Fonte (Barcelona, Spain)

In a class with Claudia you’ll discover that there is so much more in solo dancing. She uses different group formats to help to discover that solo dancing is also a social experience and that you can get inspired by interacting with other dancers. You’ll learn how to let your movements flow from one to another with a deep sense of rhythm. It’s about discovering your own shapes. As it’s true for any kind of self-discovery, you’ll be taken out of your comfort zone. With Claudia´s experience and strong pedagogic skills she will help you stay there until you reach your aha-moment! After taking her classes, many people say that they feel a strong sense of joy and confidence about solo dancing.

Clàudia explores and embraces all kinds of playful ways in her Lindy Hop and Authentic Jazz. She loves creating novel movements that are inspired from all dance forms and place them on a strong foundation of classic swing rhythms. This makes her dancing look authentic both in the sense of being Swing and being herself.

Her passion for the dance is very true to the Swing era, when it was all about pushing the boundaries of what is possible while being grounded and driven by the swinging music. This tasteful game between respecting but also transforming the roots gives her unique ways to interact and have a joyful dance with her partners.

Clàudia’s background in physiotherapy and her deep understanding of how to best use your anatomy will help you gain valuable insight into a higher body awareness and how to express yourself more freely.
