SAIDI WORKSHOP WITH TATO
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Saidi is energetic, lively, earthy and most of all: very cool! During this workshop you'll discover different ways of using the asaya (cane), you'll learn the typical bouncy saidi technique ánd you'll practice combinations which you can use for your own choreographies. We'll put everything in a short, powerful, awesome choreo.
