💃Gyrokinesis workshop💃 coming up with Daniela Di Lorenzo 🙌

Daniela has taught these workshops for us before and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Here is what to expect:

Friday 24 May @ 17:30 - 19:30:

Experience a basic Gyrokinesis class starting on the stool and then moving into standing focusing on the warm up and mobilisation of the spine. We’ll also incorporate the use of arms (Port de Bras) for dance.

Saturday 25 May @ 10:00 - 12:00

Floorwork, focusing on hip mobility, feet and abdominals. This class will be at a slightly faster pace.

The aim for these workshops is to bring home a sense of flow in the body and mind. This will be beneficial for absolutely anyone and I highly recommend joining in. Daniela will also work on breathing techniques and incorporate breath with movement teaching the importance of breathing and how it helps coordinate movement.

We recommend joining both workshops to get full benefit from her teachings, but you are also welcome to sign up for one.

Here are the details:

Friday 24 May @ 17:30 - 19:30

Havana Nights is a fun mix between a workshop and a night out! Learn the basics of the cha cha and salsa as well as how to dance with a friend then once everyone is feeling confident, we’ll pump up the music, turn down the lights and you can put your new moves to work on the dance floor! Havana nights is all about giving you the tools to have fun and feel confident on the dance floor whether you’re dancing alone, with a friend, partner or in group. This is also a great workshop to prepare for upcoming weddings.

And if you need a break (or liquid courage ;), then you are welcome to bring your own drinks to quench your thirst before joining the party again!
This event is welcome to all levels of experience and is just about having a fun Friday night so bring your partner, friend or whoever you want!

Date: Friday 1 March 2024
Time: 18:00 - 20:00-ish
Cost: R200

"I always try to make my body conditioning classes inclusive, fun, challenging, and energising. The human body is magnificent and beautiful and I love to motivate my students by sharing my passion for the way our bodies move.
