Program   
 
Dancing on musical patterns in scottish : off beat / back beat, syncopation, solo / improvisation...
Are you curious about frequent musical patterns in folk music, and more specificly in scottish? Ready to explore their impact on your way of dancing? Not afraid to (learn to) improvise on the music? Then sign up for this workshop! No partner, dance experience nor musical knowledge required.
  • Musicality in scottish: dance variations in connection with the music.
  • Info and tips to understand folk music: structure, rhythms, melodies, bars, beats, solo / improvisations,...
  • Listening exercises: Which musical element appears in this song? At what moment does it occur? And how can I predict when it will appear again?
  • How to improvise your own variations in connection with the music, during the dance?
