Swing Barcelona | Lindy Hop | Jazz Dancers
Swing dancers, performers, choreographers, and teachers based in Barcelona. They develop techniques and exercises to evolve dancing in Swing rhythm. Sonia and Hector explore solo, partner dance, and team choreographies. As Jazz dancers, they respect the most important thing: the Swing -the core in Jazz music-.
From Jazz Trios to Big Bands, Sonia and Hector find a connection with the musicians. Jazz music is simple and complex so they create dynamics to express this simplicity and complexity through their dance. Do you want to watch some videos?
Exploration makes us humans. Sonia and Hector in their classes want people to explore Jazz music through the dance. They develop exercises that involve different aspects like quality of movement, rhythm, and self-expression.
Learning from the students in each class is also very important, so they want students to solve movement and rhythm exercises for themselves. It helps to create a good atmosphere in the classes and a better teacher-student relationship.
Choreography is an opportunity to express yourself through movement, space, and rhythm. It is also an opportunity to share your personal movements with different dancers.
