Applied Musicality for Bachata Workshop
Dec 3, 2022 - Dec 3, 2022
WORKSHOP: Applied Musicality for Bachata
 
Join us for a 2-hour workshop going over all things musicality for Bachata! This workshop is meant for students who have completed at least one term of Fundamentals level Bachata courses or higher with Baza or have a solid understanding of their Bachata fundamentals and timing.

The workshop will cover the genre’s music structure, the 3 main phases (Derecho, Majao, Mambo) of the songs, and how to pick apart the different instruments.
We will also explore the math behind the music to be able to recognize the placement of hits and breaks to add dynamicism to your dancing.
 
Topics covered include:
  1. The Math Behind The Music
  2. The Instruments
  3. The 3 Main Phrases: Derecho, Majao, Mambo
  4. History & Culture
***This is NOT a patterns/combo based class, but we will have movements designed to help understand the music. As Jorelle & Monica are Bachata Sensual dancers, the movements will be more sensual bachata based.

GTK Instructors: Kristal and John

FAQs:

Do I need to sign up with a partner? You do not need to sign up with a partner! It is very common for folks to sign up for partner dance classes as individuals. While traditionally males are leads and females are follows, we are open to individuals making their choice when coming to learn with us. We just ask you that whether you choose to be a lead or a follow that you stick with that role until you are very experience dancer.

If I have a partner can we sign up together? Each person has to sign up individually - if you want to pay for two people please email us at dance@bazadance.com to get that set up properly for you.

How long is each workshop? 2 hours,: 1 hour of Salsa, 1 hour of Bachata, with a water break in the middle

What will I learn? Students will learn the fundaments of Salsa and Bachata - the instructor will focus on the foundation figures as well as cover fundamental theory behind lead and follow.

If I attend the workshop only once am I ready for Level 1? GTK workshops are designed to prepare students to enter Level 1 classes right away, but if you're feeling not-quite-ready there is nothing stopping you from taking a GTK workshop more than once.

How often do GTK workshops take place? Currently GTK Workshops will take place one Saturday a month.
