14 April - Workshop Rhythms - by Crystel Poetiray 

Would you like to expand your Lindy Hop vocabulaire and have more fun in dancing?

Crystel: Often people ask me to teach them a move. They say: Wow, I love your dancing. That move you just did… How do you do it? I never know how to reply. Because I never think in moves. I love to think of rhythms. When you have a rhythm in mind, the possibilities are infinite. You can create endless moves with one rhythm. A move however is often attached to one rhythm. That’s why I love to connect you to rhythm, to the music, which connects you to your partner as well.

Dizzy Gillespie once said: Some musicians think about a note and add a rhythm to that. Other think of rhythm and add notes. When you’re playing a rhythm it doesn’t matter which note you choose because you’re always connected to the music. This is how I view dancing and what it’s about in Lindy Hop. To express and embody how you perceive the music.

I’ll show you Rhythms and the ingredients of the music, which makes you more aware of where you are in the music, so you don’t get lost and you start perceiving/listening to the music in a different way. I won’t tell you: this is how you have to move! Instead I’ll show how you can create your own moves with the different rhythms we’re playing with. You’ll be surprised how much you already know and do! If this freaks you out and you think: I can never create my own moves - don’t worry. I’ll help you through this and show you what you can do!

You’ll be amazed how much freedom comes with playing with rhythms. You start noticing how much more fun you can have while dancing, regardless of who you’re dancing with or what level they are. You get to challenge you and entertain you instead ‘just follow’ or be bored with your own moves or worry that the other is bored by your moves… and basically I’ll get you out of your head into playing while becoming a better dancer.

Let’s play with Rhythms, get creative and have some fun!!
