➂ DANCE DEMO + WORKSHOP
웃 20:15 - 21:00 | Bulgarian Dance Demo + Initiation Contemporary Dance on Balkan party tunes
The Balkan Sessions festival harmonizes tradition and innovation. The dance demo quite literally puts tradition against contemporary; at one side Bulgarian folk group Zdravets, at the other side contemporary dancer Tchi-ann Liu. Specialized in the relation between dance and music, she will hand you over some basics of contemporary dance techniques on new Balkan party tunes in an open workshop.
Cross-over flamenco danceworkshop
Our workshop coach tonight is Hilda La Flaca, an experienced flamenco dancer well-known from the famous collective Esta Loco. She takes you along the roads flamenco and gypsy music has travelled; from Radjastan to Egypt and back from North-Africa to Spain. It will make you float and fly on the meditative chants from Khadjuraho, the sparkles from an Andalusian guitar, the ethno-fusion from Titi Robin and the solid flamenco urbano from Ojos de Brujo.
This workshop is accessible for everybody having some rhythm feeling, and above all possessing a lot of love for music.

It will focus on the brass feeling and pimp it with some energetic excitement. No harsh steps, but mostly fun, theatrical moves in which your personal touch is the finishing one.
This dance can be danced in couple, or solo. This workshop will focus on the solo part. No experience needed, just the drive to dance and to have fun.
