Welcome to Brooklyn Terry's Set the Foundation Season 1 house dance lecture, workshop, and coaching series.
In this series, we will explore the fundamental movements and ideologies of house dance. We will build our foundation through Brooklyn Terry's 5 basic principles: Groove, Step, Variation, Direction & Speed.
Groove - The natural movements of your body reacting to the music.
The Step (the technique) - How those natural movements become basic techniques to create a step.
Variation - Creating variations of those basic steps to build a larger vocabulary.
Direction - Moving those steps around in space.
Speed - Slowing down and speeding up those grooves, steps, and variations to create phrasing and flow in your dance.
This 6-week course will 1) provide tutorials on six different steps, 2) personal feedback from Terry, and 3) group sessions.
Come through to rock with us, have some fun, and build that foundation!
Three-way (PAS-DE-BOURREE)- One of the most foundational but very important movements in house. We will take that Three Way and begin to create the flow.
Shuffle and Dodge- Master the tip tap toe and variations of it then use it as a transition from flow to flow and step to step.
Scribble-foot (Scribble step)- We will learn and use the Scribble-foot (Scribble step) step to building speed Rhythm and Accuracy in our footwork.
Heel-Toe - We will learn and use the heel-toe step to build speed Rhythm and Accuracy in our footwork.
Loose Legs- I call Loose Leggs the beautiful step because it can go from smooth and seamless to staccato and bouncy. We will learn the basic steps from the grove then make it mobile and take that step across the floor.Show More
