Eddie Hercules brings a wealth of knowledge and passion for Urban Kiz, one of the hottest new dances that is rapidly growing! Come join us for this 6 hour weekend workshop!
Space is limited to 12 leads and 12 follows. No partner needed to sign up as we will all be rotating!
Day 1 (1.5 hours): Foundation 1️⃣
The series will begin with foundation of the Urban Kiz dance and Lead Follow. We will cover body movement, grounding, posture, frame, walking, and the basic foundational steps of the dance. Once we have worked these topics individually, then we will partner up and work them together. This is the most important class, everything that we do after this will be built on top of this foundation.
Day 1 (1.5 hours): Urban Kiz Techniques 👨🏫
We will cover a variety of solo and partner-work techniques on the second half of the first day. We will cover pivots, turns, spins, touches, changing lanes and how to give space for “conversational” leading and following.
Day 2 (1.5 hours): Musicality 🎶
We will have a lot of fun playing with and understanding the music. We will begin with the basic musical structure and understand how to identify layers in the music. Then we will practice on dancing on these layers and jumping layers.
Day 2 (1.5 hours): Creativity 🤹
Put your creative hats on! We will do a variety of exercises to PEAK your creativity in a fun class. We will use body movement with many of the techniques that we have been training to add creativity to our dances of Urban Kiz, Tarraxinha, Tarraxo, and Douceur. Before our goodbyes we will wrap up our workshop with a game called “Urban Kiz Legos.”
