Workshop Slängpolska and Polska with Anton Schneider (Sweden)

Program

On the first day we will be dancing both slängpolska and turning polska. First we will start with the slängpolska which is a dance basically built on walking. Here you will get familiar with the Swedish three beat music and work on the communication with the other dancers. After that there will be turning polska, and in this part we will put focus on turning technique and how to cooperate in the dance couple.

 


Please  find the description of the program on the French or Dutch pages of our website. You can refer to the menu to find all information on general organisation of our workshops, prices and discounts etc.
