More about the workshop
We don’t get better unless we practise, but sometimes it’s hard to know where to start.
Echoes of Harlem is built on a foundation of facilitated practice, workshopping new ideas, sharing knowledge and refining the known while exploring the unknown.
This workshop is about what YOU want to work on, getting together in one big room to practise whatever you want for as long as you want. It’s an open session where dancers of all levels can explore ideas, ask questions, seek feedback, get practice tips, spend one-on-one time with teachers, and also meet other dancers to practise with. There will be 17 Echoes of Harlem members roaming the room, plus a series of themed classes throughout the day to provide food for thought, new learning and swing-spiration.
We also want you to have fun and loads of it!
All classes are optional and open level. They will run alongside the ongoing practice/roaming teacher format, so you can choose to take a class or keep working on your own thing.
