Suga Bomb Discovery - SOLD OUT!
On Saturday 22nd/Sunday 23rd June we welcome the fabulous Trisha Sewell back to Lancaster for another edition of Suga Bomb!!
Two glorious days of dancing by the Lune, with a Funk n Soul evening gathering on the Saturday night! Get your tickets here: https://dancerfly.com/lancaster-lindy-circle/suga-bomb-discovery/order/shop/
What exactly is Suga Bomb?
Suga Bomb is Trisha’s boot camp follow workshop! Followers need to be encouraged to express their own personal individuality as a dancer. The curriculum promotes self-analysis, self-expression and experimentation without creative boundaries. We gain inspiration from other follow dancers (old and new) but understand the value in being different. It is aimed at providing followers with a strong understanding of the required skills on which to develop their individual dance style and be an amazing follower.
Please note, this workshop is aimed at anyone who enjoys or has some experience in following, regardless of gender or primary dance role. We would love to see those who consider leading their primary role join us!
What will we learn?
How to become a ‘Dynamic Follower’, one that every leader wants to dance with, and how to be fabulously stylish and feel great doing it! You will learn about ‘Body awareness’ through Posture, Tone, Energy and Direction. You will learn basic ‘leading skills’ to help understand your role within the dancing relationship and how to make things work wonderfully. You will look at making the most of what you have, exploring how we can practice body movement and exercises on our own in order to facilitate change and make improvement. We will work on exercises and movements, such as the swing out and move variations so that we understand how all these elements fit together to enhance your dancing! If you came to last year’s Suga Bomb Lancaster, Trisha has plenty of new concepts and techniques to challenge you!
Trisha has a lifetime’s worth of experience to share with us – she will work us hard, so come prepared for a mental and physical workout, but we’ll leave on Sunday evening with all sorts of skills to make us better at following and to help us find our own unique voice.
