Presented by the most award-winning couple in world boogie‑woogie, this workshop is a chance to make THE boogie style your own, by working on the notions of posture, guiding and interpretation: a journey into a world full of humour and fantasy!
Boogie‑woogie is a movement which came from jazz and blues whose official name dates from 1928, when musicians had the idea of playing using the rhythm of the wheels of a train, the famous "ta-da...ta-da..."
In terms of development, this dance is halfway between lindy hop and rock’n’roll. Above all it is an interpretive dance, where instead of performing a sequence of figures, you are guided by the instruments, the singers, the playing of the musicians and your own feel for the music.
William et Maëva:
They have been crowned World Champions of Boogie-Woogie four times (WRRC 2005, 2008, 2009 and 2010). Since 2011, they have extended their career into the Lindy Hop scene, without ever leaving their artistic world behind; they also teach at the biggest international Swing events.
