Workshops with Shashi im E-Werk
June 14 @ 20:00 - 00:00
20:15 Uhr: Open level
This workshop will provide the building blocks to create deeper connection and communication within the embrace to open more possibilities in the dance. The more precise and sensitive your technique, the more room there is to listen to each other and move as one!
21:30 Uhr: Intermediate level
Active and Passive Dancing in Roots (Active and Passive Leading/Following)
There are times when a follower moves and the leader waits, others where a leader moves and the follower waits, creating interesting changes in dynamic and exponentially more ways to dance even the same movements. Normally we move together, in this workshop we’ll learn how to move independently while staying connected!
Die Kurse bauen aufeinander auf.
Der erste Kurs ist für alle geeignet (keine absoluten Anfänger). Der zweite Kurs setzt eine solide Basis voraus.
Ab 22:30 Uhr: Freies Tanzen mit DJ Shashi
Shashi has developed his style of Forró through extensive travels, studying with a wide variety of dance teachers. Since 2013, he has attended more than 75 festivals and spent time living in Brazil to immerse himself in the culture.
Shashi’s passion for Forró led to him teaching and DJing at events to share his love of both the dance and the music. As well as traveling the world doing both, he set up Forró Lab in 2019, giving classes in London and hosting workshops with some of his influences such as Hugo Silva and Camila Alves.
Shashi views dancing as a way to connect with others, so he focuses on quality of embrace, connection and musicality to help people develop their technique in a way that suits any style – particularly close embrace such as Roots movements and body isolations.
Aside from having studied the Roots and Universitario styles of Forró, Shashi is very passionate about Tango and has a background in martial arts, drawing upon these influences to shape his teaching methods.
