With over 30 years of experience, Maxime CHEVRIER passes on a vast repertoire of traditional danses from the Vendée (Lower Poitou). The repertoire that we'll tackle in the workshop will allow the discovery or the deepening of the dances from the different natural regions of this region. In the program for Funambals: Rond de l'Ile d'Yeu, demi-tour and branle de Noirmoutier, avant-deux "aux 4 coins", "Grand'Danse"...
Teacher: Maxime CHEVRIER
Dancer for over 30 years, he participated in the collecting of dances with dancers from the Vendée, supervised many dance workshops, both in France and abroad. His research in archives have driven him to propose forms and variations observed in traditional dancers, today.
The aim of this workshop is to use elements of tango to explore other dimensions in bal folk dances.
For this particular event, we'll insist on the connexion in the "abrazo" (the "hug"), on centering the weight of the body, on feeling the axis and the torsion.
Immersed in group practice and shared from couple dance, listening to the music and our partner, we invite dancers to cultivate the ressources that will feed their dances!
