When I started dancing Mambo in 1997 and chose Eddie Torres as my mentor, one of the things I got hooked on straight away was his amazing shine class!!! The first time I went to his class I could not believe how good all the dancers were! And how many shines they knew!
I realised straight away that this shine class was the reason why all his dancers are amazing!
Eddie invited me to join the class, but I only knew two or three shines out of hundreds! He gave me his syllabus which I still have, and my “Shines-journey” started. I would ask everybody to teach me Shines, syllabus in hand. I took many privates with Eddie and Melissa going over every shine, its proper technique and feeling. Slowly I started being able to follow and recognise the shines as well as continuously learning new ones.
I was fascinated by how Eddie called them in the music and became an advocate of this class.
After 2 years of dancing with my dance partner Edgard ( Eddie Torres dancer) I started teaching shine class in 2002. I felt such responsibility and honour to teach my mentors shines!
Since then I have been teaching this class all over the world
And now, finally I will teach it in London!
What are you going to learn in my class
Hundreds of shines!!
All the basic shines types and families with their technique,proper execution, musicality and feeling.
Intermediate and advanced shine combos with proper technique and musicality.
Improvisation skills to be able to do these shines on the dance floor.
If you have ever tried and liked Eddies shine class before, this is your opportunity to do it in London.
And if you haven’t, this is your opportunity to take your dancing to another level. To truly let go!
I will give you a syllabus and we will record all the shines.
A shine pattern or combo is nothing but a few shines combined!
After doing this class you will be able to learn shines combos easily.
This class is a preparation for Master Jam Fest in September!!!!
