Foundation Movement # 1:
Source Djembe Master! "Lamban/Tiriba": Bolokada Conde Djembe Fola
Unofficial Name Swooping Arms
Artist: Nabe Bangoura as well as other dancers from Ballet Merveilles
Notes: The movement orginates from the Lamban Dance which is a dance of celebration in Guinea, Senegal, and Mali. I love the way their arms just just swooping. The movement seems both elegant and aggrasive at the same time.
Foundation Movement # 2&3:
Source Soul Train Line Dance YOU SHOULD BE DANCING by Bee Gees
Unofficial Name: Groovy hips, Goofy Knee Spin.
Notes: I love this guy. He is just full on boogey. His hips are out of control wiggly. His stances is fairly low. His goofy knee propells his spin.
Foundation Movement # 4:
Source Heads Will Roll Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Unofficial Name: Wiggle and Whip
Choreographer: Gary Lloyd
Notes: He wiggles his body down then whips his head to the side. I love the way he just sends his head back, the movement seemed very spontaneous and look like it burst through him.
Foundation Movement # 5:
Source 500 Days of Summer Dance Sequence to You Make My Dreams
Unofficial Name: Twist and Shout
Choreographer: Michael Rooney
Notes: Reminds me of a classic twist. It's just a happy moment. It's a movement that easily I can relate to the emotion.
What I would like to get out of this Class: I would really like to be able tos just express the joy that I have for life in my movement. I am happiest when dancing and it's something I can't contain in myself. I love to wiggle from my head, through my fingers, down to my toes. I'd like to blend, tribal, funk, and a little jazz in my movement. I want my move to be a celebration of life.
