DANCE

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 3

12:30PM/4:30PM: WORKSHOPS

Music From The Sole is a tap dance and live music company that celebrates tap’s Afro-diasporic roots, particularly its connections to Afro-Brazilian dance and music, and its lineage to forms like house dance and passinho (Brazilian funk). Led by Brazilian choreographer Leonardo Sandoval and composer Gregory Richardson, audience members will dance and respond to rhythmic prompts, embracing the fact that in the realm of percussive dance, like tap, flamenco, body percussion, and more, the dancer is not just a mover, but a musician. Guests should come ready to clap, shout, and move their bodies!
