Waltz & polka

Workshop Variations for waltz & polka by Koen Dhondt



In this workshop you will learn a number of variations for the waltz, most of which can also be applied to the polka. There will be variations in rhythm, position, style and rotation. We will also pay attention to musical sentences and the proper timing for each variation. 80% of this workshop consists of waltz and 20% of polka. 

At night, there is a Queimada, a folk bal organised by our friends from  Muziekpublique
