SUGA BOMB VIENNA

This is the description of Trisha’s Workshop in March 2013

Suga Bomb is made to make all followers feel fabulous and confident about their dancing! Our aim is to cater for all those followers who want to find their own ‘UNIQUE SWEETNESS’. Followers need to be treated as individuals. We promote self-analysis, self-expression and experimentation to be creative without boundaries. We look to other female dancers (old and new) as our inspiration but know that difference is to be valued too. The 2-day program is an introduction to our philosophy, which gives followers a deeper understanding about the core skills required to develop your individual personality and to be an amazing follower.
