Saving Energy – Sara & Paulo
Saturday 13:30 – 15:30
Location – Remigius school
Just like a piece of technology, for each movement you make your body is spending valuable energy. The goal of this workshop is to become aware of your and your partner’s bodies and movement and learning simple tools to spare, spend and share your energy, making a better use of it so you can enjoy dancing better and longer.
Sara and Paulo, from Portugal – but currently living in the Netherlands – have been dancing balfolk for more than a decade and teaching regularly for the last 5 years in regular classes, festivals abroad and intensive dance stages. They have collaborated with Tradballs, PedeXumbo, Cadansa Festival, Boombal, Frisse Folk and have organized several events in Portugal, the most important of which, Festival a 3Temps, in Lisbon, part of their dance collective, 3Temps.
Together, they have been developing a dance methodology based on a complete shared communication and the reversion of roles while dancing, combined with a modern approach to traditional dances.
