Little Wenlock Village Hall, Shropshire

Fido was a student of Bernhard Wosien and danced with him at Marburg University in Germany.
Mandy and I met and danced with Fido at the 30th anniversary of Sacred/Circle Dance at Findhorn in July 2006.

Fido will be teaching from Bernhrad's repertoire and reminding us of the dances which first attracted us all to Circle Dance - Kalamatianos, Tsamikos, Hassaposervico, Katya, Pogonisios, Kritikos, Cacak, Ciuleandra, Tino Mori- and MANY MORE!!!
He will also be bringing photos of Bernhard that we haven't seen before!!
Fido speaks perfect English, is a wonderful teacher and a great dancer- it will be a memorable weekend I am sure.
Don't miss this unique opportunity to get close to the father of our dance movement!

Open Dance Weekend with Nanni Kloke

Little Wenlock Village Hall, Shropshire

This is an invitation both to dancers who haven’t had the opportunity to dance with Nanni before as well as dancers who have, to come and experience the delights that Nanni brings.
As she always does, she will choose a theme to work with - this brings an added dimension and depth to her beautiful choreographies that she will share with us.
Nanni is hoping to start a three-module course called ‘The Dancer Within’ which will begin in November 2013 where she will be working with Judy King.
To this end, and to see if you would like to work with them both in more depth, Judy will also be doing a small amount of teaching during this weekend – with the majority of the dancing and teaching given by Nanni.
(You need to arrange your own accommodation in local B&Bs.)
Numbers are limited to 36.
Bookings: To book your place, for further information or more details please send Judy your deposit of £75.
(Please remember that all monies paid are now non-refundable because I am fully committed to all of my considerable expenses for this event.)

The Dancer Within with Nanni Kloke and Judy King

FIRST MODULE

Little Wenlock Village Hall, Shropshire

We all have an inner dancer waiting to give expression to our individual response to music. The inspirational dances of Nanni Kloke invite us to use our whole body to voice our spiritual and emotional responses in a very physical way. This exciting new course is designed to enable a group of dancers to work with focus and intent on our dancing instrument- our body.
Nanni will work with a theme during the first and third modules. She will introduce us to the theme though her stunning choreographies. She will open every day with her ‘Harmonie-Method ®’. In these sessions, Nanni isolates certain movements from some of her dances and gives us the opportunity to work with our bodies without having to worry about any steps. This is an invaluable tool in focussing on individual aspects of the dance and enables us to fully incorporate movements into our bodies in very manageable stages.
During the second module, Judy will continue the work that Nanni began. Every time we repeat dances, our increased understanding of and subsequent confidence in the way our body moves allows us to further access our ‘Dancer Within’. Through working more with Nanni’s beautiful dances, as our familiarity with them grows, so does the integration between the Dancer and the Dance.
When Nanni returns for the third module, she will bring some new material and continue to develop the theme. We hope that this way of working with depth and intent and focus (as well as having lot of fun and laughing a lot!) will really help enable you to truly dance from within.
Course dates:
Module 1: Thursday 14th - Sunday 17th November 2013
Module 2: Thursday 8th- Sunday 11th May 2014
Module 3: Thursday 27th- Sunday 30th November 2014
Course venue: Little Wenlock Village Hall, near Telford, Shropshire
Course fee: each module costs £322
You must make the commitment to attend each of the three modules as this course is designed as a whole.
The cost includes all meals (except for lunches on Thursday and Friday which are bring food to share).
Bookings: To book your place (and numbers are limited to 36), please send Judy your deposit of £225 (i.e. £75 per module). It is possible to pay for this course in stages and over time.
(Please remember that all monies paid are now non-refundable because I am fully committed to all of my considerable expenses for this event.)

 Live Music 

Greece comes to Shropshire!

with Laura Shannon, Kostantis Kourmadias & Nikolas Angelopoulos

Little Wenlock Village Hall, Shropshire

Have you always wanted to dance in Greece – but never managed to get there?
Have you always wanted to dance to live music played by Greek musicians?
Have you always wanted to learn Greek (and some Balkan) dances from a knowledgeable, passionate and inspiring skilled dancer and teacher?
Do you think you’d enjoy a musical evening where Kostantis, Nikolas and Laura perform their favourite tunes and you ‘simply’ listen or get up and dance?
Well - this is your opportunity and YOU don’t even have
to get on a plane!
I am delighted to be hosting a weekend that will tick
all those boxes for you!
Laura will be teaching the dances as well as playing some of the music. She mainly teaches dances which she has researched and experienced herself in villages throughout Greece and the Balkans for thirty years and as a result she teaches with a grace and a deep respect of the dances.
She is knowledgeable and inspiring to dance with.
Kostantis is a musician and singer from Greece. Playing violin, saz, and lyra, he specializes in the oldest forms of traditional music, particularly island music and the Greek music of Asia Minor, as well as music from the Balkans and the Near East.
Nikolas is a driving force in the younger generation of the Greek music scene, playing lafta and Laouto with remarkable sensitivity and skill.
Together they have played for many of Laura's workshops and feel honoured to help dancers approach the deep feeling quality of traditional dances.
Cost: £130 - £145 on a sliding scale.
I am pricing the weekend with a visiting teacher on a sliding scale for the first time because there are THREE people
instead of the usual one who need paying - as well as paying for three international airfares from Greece.
