About this event

Have you always been interested and triggered by konpa music and dancing? This is the perfect bootcamp for you!

You’ll be taught about the history, the basic techniques, everything you need to dance Konpa during your next party, social or festival!

Konpa is a Haitian music and partner dance style that has been growing in popularity in the kizomba scene. But how exactly do you dance it?

The goal of this bootcamp is to give you a reliable first impression of the konpa dance and the tools to dance to any type of konpa song at parties and socials. The class builds upon the previous bootcamp but will repeat the basics to allow complete beginners to participate.

Topics for this bootcamp:

- A short history of konpa dance and music.

- Simple patterns with your basics

- Different frames and how to transition between them

- Simple turns, turning technique and tips for adapting turns from other dances to konpa.

- How to recognize konpa music? What to do at different parts of a konpa song?
