For the first hour, Pete will teach a beatbox workshop open to all. He will teach basic beatboxing technique for sound and breath, and some basic rhythms to create a soundtrack for dance. If you have a mouth, you can beatbox! Non-dancers welcome.
In the second part of the workshop, Alice, Violet, and Patrizia will teach distinct tribal fusion combinations and improv techniques to inspire participants in group movement.
THEN, for the conclusion of the workshop participants will join the teachers to combine what they have learned of beatbox and tribal fusion combos into an innovative group music and dance performance for the show. We will revel in the challenge of creating in the moment and share our creative energies with everyone. Bring on the storm!
