Symphonic Rock for tribal fusion dancers

One of the most interesting aspects that tribal fusion dancers will appreciate in the choreography “A Rock Symphony” is how they can introduce Rock & Metal music in their repertoire without losing the essence of their dance sytle.

In the Rock & Metal symphonic versions, the music becomes sweeter and loses the hardness of the metallic sound, without losing its strength.

The symphonic versions of the Classics of Rock introduce instruments such as violins and cellos that allow us to take full advantage of the undulations of the repertoire of Tribal Fusion movements, which hardly fit the original versions of the songs. The music softens and loses the hardness of the metallic sound, without losing its strength. Within this subgenre, dancers will find groups such as Apocalyptica, 2Cellos, and within the Spanish panorama, Judith Mateo, whose latest work “Rock is my life” makes clear her place in the music scene.

More in February! Rock & Metal Dance workshop

Morgan East & West dance center has also scheduled the workshop “Rock & Metal Fusion for Tribal Dancers” on February 26 that I will give myself. Dancers will discover my own method to adapt the accepted steps within the Tribal Fusion repertoire to the musical particularities of metal music.

Workshop Rock & Metal for Tribal Fusion dancers

We will try above all to harden the movements known by the dancer and emphasize their drama, creating new steps and adapting others from known figures and techniques. Languages: English/Spanish. Reserve your place here.
