A TALK: to follow up on the Get Together, our MC, Corina will lead a talk about african american dances and their heritage. 

A MOVIE and a DISCUSSION: to wrap up this cozy weekend, we will watch movie together that will be about swing dancing or not...but certainly about black and african american culture. Exact title TBC. This screening will be followed by an open discussion lead by our guest MC Corina.

DISCOVERY CLASSES

Moving together towards dance that is more authentic and respectful of the values of Jazz and the African-American community that created swing dances, is very important to us.

As a part of this process, we would like to offer you the opportunity to explore and go deeper into your understanding of African American history and culture.

In EVERY Class Pass, you will have two DISCOVERY classes given by Briana.

Stepping (1h15):

The Stepping is a highly energetic African-American form of body percussion. Steppers utilize their body as an instrument to create intricate rhythms and sounds with one's' hands, feet and voice. Strong emphasis will be placed on stepping technique, movement execution as a group and the cultural expression of stepping. Overall, the workshop will emphasize moving and creating music together.


Voice and Rhythm (1h15):

You will explore individual and collective expression through rhythm by using our voices and body percussion.  You will dive into collective improvisation techniques, percussive sequences, and vocal activities that allow us to create and be the rhythms within and around us.

These courses will be all levels. It will be an opportunity to meet skiers who practice the other slopes!

PRACTICAL INFO

Classes will be held on Saturday and Sunday between 10.30am and 5pm. The exact schedule will be announced 6 weeks prior to the event. 

Classes will be taught in English.

For local tax reasons, we have to bill you separately for the social activities/Classes and the Parties. So don't be surprised if you see two lines on your invoice: one for the weekend pass and one for the parties. The total price remains the same, of course.

You want to participate but but you can't afford to do so?
