Cat Foley Workshops

Cat Foley. Dancer. Actress. Ball of bodacious badassery. This gal rocks.

 

Cat is a legend in Liverpool. A Founder,  one of the Company Directors and a Teacher at Mersey Swing, Cat is a proud scouser who has travelled the world teaching, winning competitions and inspiring dancers. Cat’s enthusiasm for the dance is infectious. If you are not already hooked on Lindy – you will be. She’s even inspired Momma Foley to Lindy!

Cat is going to continue to share her vast knowledge with us here in Liverpool. You want to improve your Lindy AND have fun doing so. Come and get it. You will leave with a smile and fancy new moves in your pocket.

We also have plenty of local and guest teachers teaching workshops. Please see below for details.

10 week Essentials Course Recap

April 22 2018
10-2 pm, Live Wire Studio
Teachers: Alicia and Felix
£20/17
 
This workshop will be a recap of the standard basic moves that all Lindy Hoppers should know (that probably make up 90% of all social dances!). And maybe your first glimpse at working on details of your dancing technique, leading and following and the detail that become more important the longer you dance.
 
You will receive feedback from teachers and fellow dancers (if you wish).
 
There will be a focused atmosphere in the workshop and it will be a real jumpstart to your dance experience. You will take home tons of tips what to work on and a good understanding of the basics.
 
Is this class for me?
 
You have danced 10 classes (A1-A5 and B1-B5) or more with Mersey Swing and you want to move up to the Moves and Techniques class? You have danced a year but you feel like you want to polish your basics?
 
If you have danced a while, this will be the place to check up on your essentials and get them in shape so you will feel ready for the afternoon workshop or upcoming weekenders!

 

Connection, Pulse and Musicality

We will spend the two hours working on the importance of PARTNER CONNECTION, PULSE and MUSICALITY; we will also explain, demonstrate and reflect on how that translates into clear leading and following which will assist you in learning more complex moves and variations in the future.
 
The workshop will focus on INDIVIDUAL DEVELOPMENT. There will be plenty of opportunities during the workshop for us to discuss areas you’d like to improve on, offer feedback to each dancer and suggest steps to further develop your dancing outside of the workshop.
 
“THIS SOUNDS GREAT… HOW DO I KNOW IF I’M READY FOR THIS WORKSHOP?!”
 
You should know the following moves: Basic (6, 8 Count, Charleston), Tuck Turn, Pass-by, Swing Out, Circle, Chase Into Tandem and Tandem Charleston.
(If you have danced less than a year in the moves and technique classes we strongly advice to brush up your basics in the morning workshop before attending this.)
