h 18.30 20.00 So what’s changed?   by Kelley Beeston

During the time you have been learning ATS® / FCBD® style you may sometimes have thought that something has changed or possibly you have even been told that something has evolved or been updated. Does this sound familiar?
You will be asked to submit, in advance, a short dance biography, as it relates to our dance style, together with any steps you believe have changed and how they have changed.

Using this information as a background for this lecture Kelley will take you on a journey through our dance to discover why some things evolved or fell by the wayside and why we might think other things have changed when in reality they have not.




h 11.00 – 13.00 Transformations and Updates w/Isabel De Lorenzo

Did the transformations that the world has undergone in recent years reflect in our way of dancing? Surely. In this two-hour workshop we will focus on how our way of dancing has changed, for better or for worse, and then try to recover a more authentic, more cheerful and relaxed attitude, closer to the sense of community which is the basis of our dance format. Starting from some concepts of FCBD®️Style, such as the flock of birds and the eye contact, we will go deeply into group work/formations, especially the circle. Slow and fast repertoire. Open level. Please bring your zills.
