This workshop in aimed at Ottawa's Intermediate/Advanced dancers.  Travis and Josianne will be focusing on how to connect and move in a way that is extremely clear, comfortable, and allows for the most freedom to improvise moves.  Also, they will be taking a look at some solo movements, learning how to break them down, make them your own, and then integrate them as stylings in your social dancing.  The final class will be looking at some very tricky moves and patterns that will hinge on the everything learned in workshop.  In order to participate you need to be comfortable with Swingouts and other basic 6 and 8 count patterns, side by side, tandem, and hand to hand charleston, as well as a knowledge of some solo charleston.  If unsure whether this workshop is for you, please contact Travis at to discuss it further.
