Workshop Details

BenMo Purple
  • Signature Morris Moves & Styling – Not too much theory, think unique moves and fun styling
  • Starting Your Dance Like a Champion – You’ll talk about the purpose of the starter step, but then go beyond it to other ideas, alternatives, more advanced ideas to start on a nice foot and segue into the dance
  • How to Kick A$$ to Blues Music – This will be all about how Ben likes to listen to blues music and how he listens to it differently than contemporary music while including some theory and some specifics of what he likes to do to blues music, and why
  • Let’s Ride: Secrets & Technique to a Good Ride – How to make them work, how to be more creative, and how to have fun rides
  • Lego Blocks: Building Your Dance to the Music (two-hour separately ticketed musicality intensive for only $25) – How Ben likes to progress his dance to the music, starting with feeling the overall vibe, playing with phrase changes, getting into details, etc.

Lego Blocks: Building Your Dance to the Music

2 Hour Musicality Intensive ($25 extra)

Ben Morris

Saturday Jan, 28th 2023, 4-6pm @ Colorado Dancesport

You’re going to learn how BenMo, one of the best Jack & Jill & strictly dancers on the planet, progresses his dance to the music.  You’ll learn how to feel out the overall vibe of the song, how to play with phrase changes, and how he constructs his dance “off the fly” like the bad @$$ dancer that he is (Jonathan’s words lol).

Interested in attending this intensive?  Make sure to choose one of the Musicality ticket options above.

Pricing

Cost below is for 4 workshops, Saturday & Sunday social dances, BenMo improv demo(s), and pizza party.  The optional 2 hour musicality intensive is $25 extra.

We’ll have 100 weekend passes available, and here are the costs:

  • $69 for the first 20 buyers.  Sold out
  • $79 for the next 20 Sold out
  • $89 for the next 20 Sold out
  • $99 for the next 20 Sold out
  • $109 for the remaining 20 Sold out!
If this sounds too good to be true, that’s because it almost is! And we’re pretty serious about the attendance cap of 100, so don’t make the mistake of waiting to buy your pass. You MIGHT get lucky and be able to buy at the door if someone is a “no show,” but why take that risk??
 

Will you be selling individual workshops or dance entrance?
If we don’t sell out, individual workshops can be purchased for $25 at the door via cash or Venmo.  The Saturday night social dance can be purchased for $10 regardless of whether we sell out.

Am I "good enough" to attend these workshops?

Maybe you’re thinking, “This all sounds great, Jonathan, but do I need to be an advanced dancer to take these classes?” Absolutely not! If you’re comfortable with your 6 & 8 count basics (sugar push, left & right side pass, tuck, whip, reverse whip), then you’re good!  Don’t know one of those yet?  Find a place that has beginner WCS classes prior to the event! 

No matter if you’re a novice or an all-star, everyone can get something amazing from Ben Morris.
