“Technique within your groove” - a teaching method developed by Tatiana Desardouin
The idea is to preserve a rhythmic flow (groove) of the body, according to a music, and to incorporate technical tools (using foundations and technics). The dancer uses his natural movements with more control, or in other words, with more consciousness of his body. This method pushes the dancers to develop their coordination and rhythm: playing with two body parts and moving on two different rhythms simultaneously, for instance. This will feel unnatural, but the goal is to be fluid, remain organic, and to keep ‘grooving’ within those physical and technical difficulties. This allows for more freedom in one’s musicality and freestyle without losing the essence of those styles.
