JUAN AND MARIEL IN SINGAPORE

28 - 29 Sept 2019

Juan Villafane and Mariel Gastiarena will be in Singapore to share their amazing experience and skills as professional Lindy hop teachers and dancers.

 

This is Juan's third visit to Singapore and we welcome him back as we have found his classes provide magic tips that help improve our dancing so much!

The workshops are designed for all different levels of dancers. We promise that you will leave having learnt more about the dance and also how to continue practicing to keep on improving.

WORKSHOP SCHEDULE

You are familiar with both rhythms and patterns as well as the technique that comes with it. This level will try to improve on the execution of fairly basic material, but also provide slightly more spiritual and challenging material.

Level 2:  

This level is for experienced dancers - students showing up at this level are confident, technically knowledgeable and fairly fluent in the rhythmical language around the dance form. The material in this level will be challenging from all aspects: rhythmically, technically and tempo wise.
