Step & Story
Move to the Rhythms & Learn Beyond the Steps
Go Dance For Change
In this workshop, Karen will share dance steps and the short stories behind them related to culture, radical friendships and collective action, through the lens of her journey in Ireland with Go Dance For Change. Using body movement and storytelling, we will dance and have fun while discovering steps and stories from rhythms such as Afro-Brazilian Dance, Dancehall and Brazilian Funk. For this beginner-friendly session, we suggest wearing comfortable and loose-fitting clothes. Anything you can move freely in and layers are always good to keep your body warm.
Através de sua jornada na Irlanda com Go Dance For Change, neste workshop, Karen compartilhará alguns passos de dança e narrativas relacionadas à Cultura, amizades revolucionárias e ações coletivas. Através de movimentos corporais e contação de histórias, vamos dançar e nos divertir enquanto descobrimos passos de ritmos como Dança Afro-Brasileira, Dancehall e Funk Brasileiro. Para esta sessão aberta à quem é iniciante em dançar, sugerimos que você use roupas confortáveis e folgadas. Qualquer coisa que você possa se mover livremente, e camadas são sempre boas para manter seu corpo aquecido.
