SUNDAY November 16 from 2pm-4pm at
Samantha Riggs 2 hour workshop. Fosse-lized!
Let us tip our stylish bowler hats to Bob Fosse, jazz dance choreographer extraordinaire! Samantha has brought the stylized, cynical sexuality of Fosse to Bellydance and Fosse-lized some tribal fusion combos for you to learn. These combos are dark, satirical and full of attitude and emotive body language. Besides his distinctive dance style (which included the use of inward knees, rounded shoulders and body isolations), Fosse also utilized the idea of subtext (unspoken thoughts and motives - the content underneath the dialogue) and gave his dancers something to think about during their numbers. Samantha will facilitate the incorporation of subtext into dance to help develop better acting technique on stage, bringing an awareness of pushing an intent just beneath the surface to create more intensity. Long skirts will just get in your way, so please wear form-fitting pants or shorts. Fosse believed that "The time to sing is when your emotional level is too high to just speak anymore, and the time to dance is when your emotions are just too strong to only sing about how you feel." Amen.
