POLYNESIAN DANCE - BEGINNER LEVEL
In Polynesian dances women often uses gestures to tell stories. It is actually common to represent with movements aspects of femininity, such as the innate beauty of the woman, her body, fertility, etc., or natural phenomena, such as the flight of a butterfly, the movement of waves or the falling of raindrops. In this class specially designed for beginners we will focus on the enigmatic dances of TAHITI ISLAND. The Tahitian dance is energetic, sensual and at the same time delicate.
We will work different combinations of steps to gain control in our legs and hips, paying special attention on hip movements commonly present in Tahitian dance, such as Tairi Tamau, Varu, Hura, Horo or Fa'arapu. We will also work on the control of arms and hands, by using delicately gestures and aiming for subtlety and "air flow". Of course, musicality and rhythm will be trained intensively with percussion songs. All techniques learned will be used and practiced in several dance compositions and in a little choreography.
All this in a cozy space with dim light and candles, creating an intimate atmosphere for senses and body.
