Music Monday: Dance, dance, dance

To what song have you or would you choreograph a dance routine?

There are some songs that make you want to dance. People groove to them in their cars or when the song plays on the jukebox and shoulders start to shake. In a Workshop World Dance class, students are taught how to take this urge to dance and structure it in a way that reflects the intention of the movement. What emotions can we convey through our bodies? How does the way we move our bodies change the meaning of the song?

Dance is a part of and a way to explore communities and culture. It helps us connect to each other by creating a shared experience. What songs have you choreographed a dance to? What songs make you want to shake it?

You can check out what gets the Workshop grooving by listening to our playlist. Dance, dance, dance
