Although the classes are split into "Blues", "Balboa" etc. the main focus of the weekend is about intentionality in dancing to Jazz music, having the vocabulary, the movement technique, that comfortable connection, and being able to express the music. Anne-Hélène and Bernard have all the tools and experience to impart these aspects of dancing, from being a musician (Bernard) and a dancer trained in the Franklin method (Anne-Hélène), and a long time partnership in doing Blues and Balboa - dances that really rely on connection and rhythms, feeling and the music.
