“La Terapia del Amor” (Champeta dance class) with Alberto Barrios
Dance teacher Alberto Barrios.
Champeta is a popular social dance from Cartagena de Indias, Colombia. This class will focus on the historic syncretism of African and Indigenous dance practices. Champeta’s energetic music and movement qualities generate a sensory-rich physicality, characteristic of this Caribbean region. Different rhythms will be addressed throughout the class, e.g. Soukous, Creole Therapy (Champeta), Zoka, Calypso, Cumbia, and Mapale. Undulations, vibration, fluidity, coordination and movement isolation will be explored while dancing to the music.
This class will be taught in Spanish with English translation.
