Events for 2016
20th November 2016 – Beginners Cotswold.
Jig workshop with an emphasis on technique: “how to dance vs what to dance”
The Knights of King Ina will be going back to basics this autumn with the latest in their series of jig workshops. To be held on Sunday 20 November, the workshop will be a beginners guide to the performance of steps and figures in the Cotswold Morris tradition of Fieldtown.
The morning will focus on the stepping and movements with a particular look at how to dance, especially performing moves and steps safely to enhance your dancing performance and to prolong your dancing life.
In the afternoon, the steps and moves practiced will be used to learn the Fieldtown double Jig ‘ None So Pretty’, alongside a look at some enhancements to it.
Attendees to this workshop are encouraged to take all the steps, moves, and enhancements learned, and either build on them or adapt them to the style and inflection of their team and the traditions they dance.
This workshop is intended to be suitable for beginners, but is open to everyone, including those who may be more familiar with other dance traditions and wish to gain an introduction to Cotswold Morris, as well as those who are looking to improve their technique by going back over the basics, revisiting the steps, and improving their performance, with the aim of enjoying many more years of active dancing.
