Trophies Are Nice, But This Is Better

DANCE COMPETITION SEASON is around the corner! Here’s a rehearsal snippet from a flamenco inspired #tapdance from last year’s season.

Press Here To Watch

Sure winning trophies are nice, but creating a memorable, challenging piece is always much more rewarding. This solo was best of all worlds, winning numerous categories and big scholarships, while providing a fulfilling challenge to my wonderfully smart student Lara.

I choreographed to a beautiful arrangement of a Gypsy song, “Seresta**” The entire piece was extremely musical, and filled with passion using complex, flamenco syncopation, a range of dynamics, and lots of space in the intro. Plus, listen to the time signature, one of my faves to work in! 🎢🎢

**SERESTA performed by Dizzy Gillespie United & Nations Orchestra
