Serena Ramzy - Bristol 2018 – Core 1 Course

 

“Core 1 Course” by Serena Ramzy is designed to teach vital elements in the foundation of a dancers’ training, increasing her knowledge of movement (technique), rhythm and music. 

 

A deeper understanding of these 3 key aspects of the dance is essential to all dancers who wish to develop and raise their own ability. This is the foundation, the CORE of the dance!

 

Have you ever wondered if you were doing the right thing to the music? At the right time? Correct move to the sound? What should I following the music? What rhythms is this and how do I dance it? What else can I do to this rhythm? Is this the right feel for the music?

 

If so, here is the course that can clarify these questions for you by giving you the data and techniques that you need to understand and able to apply to your dancing.
