13:45 – 15:45 Creating a space for movement – Mikuláš Bryan

It’s time to move past those “leading” and “following” clichés. We will try to think out of the folksy box and approach dancing as a mutual activity, where everybody is responsible for his own movement, while creating the space for the movement of the other(s). This will involve developing a comfortable, flexible frame of connection between you and your partner that will allow you to pass on even the complicated ideas with ease. Or not. But we will definitely have some fun trying!

Mikuláš Bryan works hard on promoting bal folk on the Czech scene, while also teaching blues dancing and dance technique on a regular basis. His dancing background consists of tango, swing, salsa and, balboa with jazz and contemporary workshops here and there. Although he approaches every dance with a deep respect for its roots and traditions, he always aspires to broaden its horizons and create a bridge between tradition and modernity.
