A weekend dedicated to dancing solo! Discovering rhythm and movement in your own body and how to express yourself more through the language of dance!
Though Swing Station has a focus on jazz and blues movement, we’re so happy to mix it up and include other solo dancing to broaden horizons and spark your interest, hoping you’ll find some new movement in your body.
Our exploration this weekend is more dedicated to exploring other solo dances that enrich our understanding in general of movement and dance.
Our parties will make you mix up your dancing styles and put you in other rhythms and moods, dancing solo or with a partner. You choose! We just hope you’ll open your heart and mind and embrace music and dance in so many different forms.
It’s our idea that Lisbon is just the right city to come and explore different dances. There’s a strong mix of cultures here in the city and dance communities enjoy mixing together because we all have one thing in common – we just want to dance!
•8 hours of Workshops in a variety of modalities, some open level and others for 2 different levels. • The workshop on Friday evening is about preparing your body for dancing – either through floorwork or through contemporary dance ideas – you’ll choose. •Group warmups at the beginning of the day • Group stretching at the end of the day •3 parties where we push you out of your dancing limits with some open flash classes and DJs who mix up musical styles!
