REPORT FROM INTERNATIONAL QUALITY CAMP.
The International Quality Camp took place on the 28th-30th of December in Warsaw. It was organized by a Polish couple of professionals Aleksandra and Lukas Tomczak Vice World Champions in Ballroom Dancing. The camp takes place in Warsaw four to six times a year. Designer Magazine had the opportunity to join this event and enjoyed knowledge sharing. We had approximately twenty couples from different countries and on different levels.
The agenda of the camp for three days was divided into group and private lessons in Standard dancing. From time to time there is a guest teacher from Poland or abroad, this time it was Stefano Terrazzino.
Lukas and Aleksandra put a lot of attention to technical details. This time the group lesson subjects were Feeling the Timing, Timing the Feeling, and Mechanics in English Waltz and Slowfox. We could observe Lukas dedication to their couples during one of the private lessons, he supports his students with the equipment called Strong Frame to train a leader’s frame while dancing the Quickstep. Aleksandra uses to complete many of Lukas’s explanations during knowledge sharing, which is helpful for the follower.
