DanceKinesis
142,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

I knew that DanceKinesis was the missing dimension in Ballroom and Latin dance training and performing, but I needed to put it into a format that would be most helpful to dancers. I sought the opinions of many social and professional dancers world-wide, and, now, this world-class body, movement, and dance training system is the tried and proven result of their responses. DanceKinesis, dancing by a more natural movement and rhythm, is the newest and fastest growing concept in dance training, and is already being used, enjoyed, revered, and copied by dancers of every level. DanceKinesis does teach dancing, but it first teaches dance. The theories and practices of DK may be applied to all of the partnership dances. It focuses on the body's natural movement, fundamentals and principles, and the 7 Laws of Motion. It turns these principles into dance. The techniques and traditional studies of dance are then applied to the individual's natural movements as a means to; define and characterize the dance desired, and, to control and maintain its stylistic movements, rhythm/s, timing/s, and interpretation/s. DanceKinesis may be used with all existing syllabi of all modern Ballroom and Latin dance schools. The text begins with studies the psychology of why we dance. It continues with titles such as 'Corrective Posture Arc' and 'The 3 Body Tiers' which help to better understand, rebuild and/or retrain the body to feel better in everyday life as well as dance. Others such as 'The 7 Natural Laws', 'The 4 Schools [Studies] of Ballroom Dance', and 'The 2 Energies of Ballroom and Latin Dance' help to better understand and better create proper and more efficient body movement. Did you know that there are at least 3 primary rhythms to most pieces of music? Do you know why it is not good to learn or teach dance by using the terms 'Slow' and 'Quick'? Did you know that the terms 'Lead' and 'Follow' are technically the opposite of what most persons b

Elusive Majesty
21,90 CHF *

I pulled off my boots, shaking ever-present grit from the toes, and stripped down until my only attire was a headlamp. 'Now there's one for the fashion runways,' I thought wryly. More aging adventurer than willowy Milan supermodel, I eased into the impossibly cool, aqua water and felt the floor quickly fall away. My buddy Neil followed behind. We stroked across the Olympic pool-sized lake, which at its center seemed to be 20 crystalline feet deep, maybe more. Ahead of us the water dove around a blind corner, reaching into who knows where. Or what. Then we saw it. Or rather, it chose to reveal itself to us. We were at the gates of an enchanted kingdom that no fairy tale could conjure. A broad avenue, splendidly decorated with pagoda towers and rich draperies, rose out of the lake in front of us. Exchanging wide-eyed glances, we stepped onto the promenade, passing lily pads and long ribbons rising from the lake on either side. The path terminated in a broad platform seemingly designed for royal audiences. We found ourselves in a magnificent ballroom, our shadows rippling distantly on its walls. We were in Lechuguilla cave, 800 steamy feet below the earth's surface in New Mexico. And we weren't turning back. Called 'the Jewel of the Underground' by its devotees, Lechuguilla is a wonderland of sublime vistas, its secrets unrolling in more than 135+ miles of passages - and that's only what has been explored so far. It's both the deepest limestone cave in the U.S. and, so far, the fifth longest in the world. No one, however, has chronicled in detail the secrecy, exploits, victories, accidents and inevitable politics surrounding the cave's emergence into public consciousness. This book entitled Elusive Majesty is the first installment of The Lechuguilla Cave Trilogy and chronicles the early years of this two decades long adventure. This is a landmark work aimed at a broad audience that enjoys armchair adventure, vividly told, regardless of whether they've ever set foot in an REI. Quick background: Two decades ago, Lechuguilla was considered an obscure pit near Carlsbad Cavern that could be thoroughly explored in less than an hour. Yet visitors repeatedly noticed a howling wind beneath the dirt floor, indisputable evidence of a great cavern beyond. A determined team of 'cavers' dug intermittently for 18 months before breaking through to one of nature's grandest mysteries - one that Indians had known of at its mouth, but that had lain anonymous for who knows how many generations. We've taken a dual approach to the book: high adventure and obsessive attention to factual accuracy. The former describes five of Lechuguilla's most significant and colorful explorers, nearly all of whom participated for the entire 20 years. The collection of personalities and 'real' professions is, to put it mildly, eclectic: a genius Mensa beekeeper, an exuberant emergency room physician, a Luddite hermit, a gung-ho rock climber and myself, an optometrist and onetime goldmine operator. The narrative includes our agreements, revelations, arguments, near-fatal accidents, partings and coming together of ways with an intensity that only a first-person experience can. Yet the real main character book is the cave itself - a splendorous, world-class natural treasure by virtually any definition. It's hard to imagine anywhere as stunning, magnificent, ethereal and simultaneous alien as Lechuguilla. Knowing that words can't possibly do it justice, Elusive Majesty has been lavishly endowed with 170 photographs and maps from internationally recognized cave photographers and graphic artists. As one of the most important and interesting exploration stories of the last century, Lechuguilla Cave's story deserves to told - and brilliantly illustrated photographically - in full. This is the book to do it. I am most pleased to present Elusive Majesty the first installment of The Lechuguilla Cave Trilogy for your consideration.
