19th November 2017 – Beginners Cotswold.

 

Jig workshop with an emphasis on technique: Introduction to Sherborne

 

The Knights of King Ina will be going back to basics this autumn with the latest in their series of jig workshops. To be held on Sunday 19th November, the workshop will be a beginners guide to the performance of steps and figures in the Cotswold Morris tradition of Sherborne.

 

The morning will focus on the stepping and movements with a particular look at how to dance, especially performing moves and steps safely to enhance your dancing performance and to prolong your dancing life.

 

In the afternoon, the steps and moves practiced will be used to learn the Sherborne Jig “Go Enlist for a Sailor”

 

The workshops are not intended to overrule your side foreman but to give you an enhancement to your dancing to add to your team’s unique style, in your side, your foreman has the last word on styling and presentation.

 

This workshop is designed to be suitable for beginners, but is open to everyone, including those who may be more familiar with other dance traditions and wish to gain an introduction to Cotswold Morris, as well as those who are looking to improve their technique by going back over the basics, revisiting the steps, and improving their performance, with the aim of enjoying many more years of active dancing.
