Come learn and/or improve your kizomba with Rachel Cassandra!!! This is a three hour workshop designed to help beginners and improvers become better kizomba dancers. Workshops are as follows: First hour: Leading and Following Technique IntensiveKizomba is about so much more than steps. What we look for is an amazing close connection, an effortless communication, a beautiful partnership. Come learn how to achieve that flow with your partner. We'll get into the details of leading gently but clearly as well as following with lightness and energy. We’ll also discover how to create a safe, intimate connection with our partners. Second hour: Saida Variations-Saida is one of the most popular steps of kizomba, which means it’s everywhere. Wouldn’t it be nice to have some options for its execution? We’ll look at some fun footwork and styling options for both men’s and ladies’ saidas. Get ready to switch it up! Third hour: Transitions-Changing Positions and DirectionsEver feel like you’re stuck in linear motion? We’ll explore different ways of moving into open or promenade position as well as many ways of resuming exit or closed position. Have fun with moving inand out subtly or opening closing with panache. Never feel stuck again! Come practice your moves and the Red, White, and Chocolate Party with Sentir El RItmo, There will be a very special kizomba room with Nashville's own Dj Afrodeshiak.

About Rachel Cassandra: Rachel Cassandra is a teacher and dancer originally from Port Jefferson, New York. Her true loves are dancing, teaching, and travel – and she’s pursued these extensively since she started dancing in 2005. She has a varied dance background and extensive teaching expertise. Rachel has taught in cities around Europe and across the United States. While she periodically bases herself in one city for a time (most recently New York City, London, and Dublin), she is more often living the nomadic teaching lifestyle. Rachel finds particular joy in helping new scenes improve, which has inspired her latest teaching tour. Kizomba is Rachel’s primary dance. She also provides instruction insemba and has been known to give tips on social tarraxinha. While she loves following, Rachel is an advocate of gender equality in kizomba. Not only does she teach leaders’ steps and technique, she also leads on the social floor. She encourages everyone to try styling classes and loves to see people exploring both sides of her favorite dance. In addition, you’ll still find Rachel out doing lindy and blues, and she’s determined to learn West Coast Swing and Zouk-Lambada eventually.
