Swords: The Graceful Warrior (3 hours) with Naira Kai from Spokane
Saturday July 27 2013 1:30-3:30pm (includes break)
Sword dancing seems to universally thrill and capture the imagination of all audiences. It is easy to let your dance fail you though while you man these cumbersome, and occasionally dangerous props. This workshop covers the very beginning of the sword dance journey- Sword selection; major balance points; and isolation. Once you pass that first phase this workshop will move into discussion over appropriate moves for appropriate venues, audience considerations, spotting potential hazards, and how to deal with things if they go South. Then we move onto working with two swords. Dancing with two swords can feel like a cage restricting your mobility and speed. Learn to make it work with you so you can make those blades sing with your body movement
Please bring a bottle of water, a light snack, a yoga mat (if desired), a notepad, and of course, a sword.
Please avoid wearing any long voluminous skirts.
