🤔 About The Workshop 🤯

"Learn the Ways of the Force (to Dance)"

In honor of May the Fourth, this month's lesson will focus on connecting our energy field with our partner's, in order to lead and follow a dance without touching.

We will begin with some basic movements, and build to more complex steps that you might be surprised are possible without physical contact.

While this class is a nod to Star Wars, this technique is actually a fundamental concept in some partner dances and provides a critically important lesson about connection and frame.

Once you understand how much communication you can have without touch, once you bring touch back you will be that much closer to mastering that elusive "strong but gentle" feeling we social dancers yearn for.

We would be honored if you would join us!

🧳 Things to Bring 🩰

Non-street dance shoes or dance-able socks

👖 Things to Wear 👕

Avoid wearing jeans or constrictive pants to the workshop if you can.

JASON POTELL has a deep love for culture, art, and dance. He spent many years traveling the world, studying dances in their home countries. From tango in Argentina, to casino/son/rumba in Cuba, to waltz in Vienna, to zouk in Brazil, he loves understanding the links between culture, people, and dance. He teaches over 25 different dance styles, but has a special love for fusion, zouk and tango. He helped found the fusion dance scene in Washington, DC, and was its primary instructor for many years before relocating to Los Angeles.
