Training Description
All the world likes to dance to a rhythm. Or even to several rhythms. Dancing to layers of sound. Not only do most of us enjoy this kind of dancing, but we also enjoy watching others move while carrying the beat, whether it’s audible or not. We can feel it when it’s there. It’s in the way each of us walks, the way we speak in our various dialects, our slang. It’s in how we tell a story, communicating affect, sensation and rhythm. This week, we will practice hearing and responding to many beats, and dance together with set sequences and improvised scores challenging speed, centering relationality, and welcoming errors. Methods from somatics, improvisation, perreo, salsa, and festejo will be applied.
