The Connection Workshop
This workshop teaches two types of connections : the physical connection and the more subtle connection, defined as the Awareness Connection. Both are essential conditions to a successful partner dancing. Simple but efficient exercises are taught to demonstrate how the Feminine and the Masculine use the connection to navigate with each other.
The Creation of the 3rd Axis :
As soon as both partners touch each other, a 3rd Axis is spontaneously generated. In that 3rd Axis, both partners dwell and find one another. Both partners are responsible for the management of that 3rd Axis. The creation of this 3rd Axis does not annihilate the individual axis. In fact, the good management of the 3rd Axis must be done with the tool of the individual axis.
Ultimately, the "THE MAGDALENA TECHNIQUE ® " helps the student understand what actually constitutes the Axis. It is a Metaphysical place from which, Movement will be generated.
The goal is o be able to hold a partner in the embrace and walk , in a casual way, moving as one unit, «holding » oneself up, while at the same time allowing the other partner to « hold » themself up.
