Lecture topic: How do we stimulate feeling from the dance and what part of the body does this come from.
Key learning points:
- All movements begin with the feet – using effective foot pressure and rolling motion from heel to ball to toes.
- From the feet, the feeling in the body is built up in an internal ripple and produced through the steps. It’s about feeling the internal aggression and then expressing that at various points during the dance to accent the music and highlight different shapes within the body.
- Feeling is also created between partners – how each partner moves in action and reaction.
- Music: Paso Doble music creates a strong atmosphere and feeling.
