Event description
A four hour journey, teaching you the basics in the dance Konpa and the style Douceur.

About this event

Expand your knowledge and dance styles with this beginners Bootcamp Douceur and Konpa happening the 11th July in Rotterdam.

If you’re interested in learning Douceur and Konpa, challenge yourself with this 4 hour Bootcamp by Avi & Reza (Douceur) and Janita (Konpa). You’ll be taught about the history, the basic techniques and end the day with a practice session.

Having a good mastery of the basics of Kizomba is highly recommended

Douceur ☁️

Douceur is a state you are in when two partners use step and body movements with flow, control of energy and sweetness in dance. Partners that dance douceur may use movements similar to Tarraxinha, micromovements and steps to reach the state.

It comes from the understanding that dancing is not only about steps. In Douceur two people experience an unprecedented experience of mind and bodily connection while dancing with musicality and flow.

This bootcamp will cover leading and following, connection with the dance partner, technical steps, body movement and the evolution of the dance.

Konpa

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

This class will introduce you to the very basics of konpa: the basic steps, frames, simple turns and a taster to gouyad. These elements will allow the students to dance to any type of konpa song at parties and give a foundation for upcoming classes and bootcamps.
