This exciting four- week workshop will concentrate on songs of the Haitian diaspora, folklore and traditional.The two predominate rites, Rada and Petwo will be explored, as well as some of the more celebratory secular type rhythms. We will have fun while delving deeper into the three parts of the cultural conversation that make one whole, the rhythms, the dances and the songs. Goals: - Teach students rhythms and songs that correlate to the traditional dances that are presented in class. - Have students explore and understand the meanings and historical significance of dances/ rhythms. - Present the rhythmic structure so students know where songs and dances fit within that structure. - Execute the practice of singing and dancing together, while keeping rhythm and progressing across the floor. Specifications: These workshop classes will begin with learning the songs of the dances and rhythms we will focus on for that class. The second and third classes will begin with a review of the previous weeks songs and progress into the songs of the day. In the fourth week, we will learn new songs and review all songs taught in the previous weeks. Worksheets will be handed out so students have something to take with them to practice between classes and to take notes. Recording devices are strongly encouraged so timing and tune can be documented. Students should be prepared to stretch and warm-up while singing so we can begin immediately after singing to progressions across the floor. Note:The estimated duration of this workshop is 1.5 hours.
