This year at Lisbon Blues we'll have two workshops to brighten up our day!!! Join us and enjoy Nicolas and Alina mix of french charm and eastern austerity in a partner and a solo workshop for all levels. You can choose to do just one or both workshops (this is a add-on to the Lisbon Blues Pass)
add-on Partnered blues - Momentum of Flowing dance
In this class we will work on idea of flowing dance – in our body, in the space. By using momentum we will see how to create the spherical, asymmetric dance as it was in the tradition of Juke Joint dances. All level workshop.
For this workshop we'll need a balanced number of followers and leads in class.
add-on Solo blues - Solo Blues routine “Never move too fast”
Nicolas and Alina bring us their rhythmic routine under the groovy track of B.B.King! All level workshop. Music here

About nicolas and alina
Nicolas and Alina are united by a long story, tested by time and distance. They met each other as teachers in Minsk, where they had an harmonious and easy going connection. Their classes are a mix of french charm and eastern austerity, flowing between a more laid back atmosphere where everyone laughs and talks and a more focused environment, letting the dance and music speak for itself. Having a diverse dancing experience - Tango, Hip-Hop. Classical, Lindy-Hop and Blues - they have a keen understanding of the human body, its mechanics and aesthetics, according to the context of different dances. Nicolas and Alina are currently based in Rennes, France, and travel to teach, learn and compete in several events, having won multiple prizes as a couple and individually.
