Casino is a dance of the people. It is all about self-expression and is a varied in style as are the people who dance it. While there are similarities and shared basic elements, every individual gives it their own personality. Many people like to step out from pure, traditional Casino to bring elements of other dances into it – improvising, creating, expressing themselves through dance.
In doing so, it is important know the fundamentals of the dances, respect their origins, and bring them into the dance in a way that adds cohesiveness and fluidity to the experience.
This intensive is designed to take you through the fundamentals of a variety of dances, teach you about their secular and religious origins so that you know what you are representing, and then work on how and when you can bring them into Casino.
Casino Fusion is for the creative – working on body movement, musicality, improvisation, and creativity.
