Teach the teacher

12 September 2019

Teaching a balfolkworkshop, that’s not something you just do! It takes preparation and courage. This workshop will give you advice on how to handle such a thing and by doing exercises you can put your new knowledge into practice right away!

NB: 

  • This workshop is suitable for max. 40 participant. Be there on time! You cannot reserve this workshop!
  • The workshop is open to all who have (some) experience as a balfolkteacher, or have the ambition to become one some day. You need to bring your enthusiasm and your commitment to follow the whole workshop!

 

It’s a festival! So many great bands, so many great dancers, so many great foods. Lets celebrate with so many great workshops! Instead of focusing on one single subject, we will do a series of shorter ‘taster’ workshops on a variety of themes. Plenty of challenge for all levels. Doggie bags will be provided: there will be plenty of stuff to take home with you. So bring your “A”-game, and let’s work on turning into an ‘A+’!

Are your feet tired of dancing? Come relax during the boat tour through national park ‘De Wieden’ (‘The Lakes’) and enjoy the stunning views this uniquely Dutch water landscape offers. Its history is reflected in the tiny houses once owned by peat cutters, the drainage windmills and… why is there a church tower standing in the water? The park is also home to a great diversity of birds, butterflies, and other animals. If you’re really lucky, you might even spot an otter!

IMPORTANT: you will need to arrange your own transport to visitor center De Wieden (address: Beulakerpad 1, Sint Jansklooster). The boat will leave from there at the starting time of the workshop, so be on time!
Maximum 24 people: registering is required.

Do you love dancing bourrée 3t from the Auvergne, or would you like to start loving it? Come one, come all! We will approach this by the blueprint (for lack of a better word)… The secret pattern. Steps are part of the workshop but not the focus, which might be different than you’re used to. Far more is about how to (quickly) understand the dance, so you can make it your own – have fun, be connected and be able to make it as elegant or crazy as you (and your neighbours) want. And how to do this together.

Workshop ingredients: lots of bourrées, how to communicate in the dance in order to change the pattern, priorities: music vs partner and of course tips & tricks for frivolities 😉
