Newsletter Shimmy Shake October 2016
Overhaul your movement, Kami Liddle style!
This year the Shimmy Shake Festival 2016 starts with a masterclass of four hours given by top Tribal Fusion dancer Kami Liddle from the USA.
Refine movements and transitions so that they are extremely isolated, fluid and clean – learn to think and move from the inside out. Kami will also focus on crafting very subtle micro movements that allow you to move extremely fast while adding a wonderful pop of contrast to your dancing. This is a unique chance to sharpen up your skills with an icon from the Fusion world, for intermediate to highly skilled dancers.
A few tickets are left, so order yours now here (your ticket includes an oriental style dinner with lots of veggie options)!
