Topic: The Sammy Davis Jr Effect: Techniques for Bringing Musicality to Your DanceDescription: Like Sammy Davies Jr and other tap dancers, belly dance is really about expressing the music and feelings with your body. In this workshop, we’ll talk through a plethora of methods to varying a core movement to really extract the emotion or music as you the artist see fit. We’ll be playing with a variety of shimmies, puffs, whiffs, ticks, pops and locks. We’ll also play with the magic of contrasting slinky with hard popping. Please make sure to bring a towel. We will be doing some drilling and sweating is allowed.
