In this special session of Openwork, we will be working on incorporating African-inspired movements into our Mambo!
This practice consists of a short warm-up utilizing pre-arranged combinations of footwork, movements and gestures called "Shines." The instructional portion of this course follows, including a choreographed sequence used to introduce and apply concepts of movement and musicality. Allowing us to explore the possibilities available for our own personal expression.
Open work is practiced to Salsa, Mambo, and Cha Cha Cha music, as well as other Son-based rhythms. It includes movements and patterns from the Puerto Rican Bomba and Plena, Cuban Rumba, Yoruba, West African, and Pachanga disciplines.
