28 Aug 2014; L3 Drills&Improv w/playlist

This was a great class! We looked at using a certain kind of drum solo for a duet. We chose songs that are 3-4 minutes in length, are textured but not too complicated; all tempo changes are preceded by cadence and follow through in a predictable format. We first danced in duets out of the chorus, to get to know the song. Then we immediately danced the whole song in duets facing away from the mirror so the dancers could feel the trust that is necessary for a tricky, fast paced song.

I was not able to find Uncle Mafufuo's Simple Solo, but you can find it on Sirocco Vol. 1 at the FCBD® Shop.

Also, remember from previous posts that Nutcracker in FCBD® language refers to the last 5 min 20 seconds of Roah Albi.
