Using the oldest instrument on the planet — the human body — we clap, slap, snap, step and vocalize our way through some very fun and funky, original and traditional rhythmic music. Through the incorporation of rhythmic devices often found in traditional sources — polyrhythms, polymeters, crosspulses, half-time/double-time, and phasing — BODY MUSIC is an effective way of internalizing rhythmic work, which enhances the development of time, timing, phrasing, listening skills, independence, coordination and ensemble awareness.
It is a useful tool for musicians, dancers and movers of all kinds, actors, DJs and film editors — anyone interested in improving their rhythmic skills. Wear comfortable clothing and clean sneakers or jazz shoes. No previous experience necessary.
KEITH TERRY is a percussionist/rhythm dancer/educator whose artistic vision has
straddled the line between music and dance for more than three decades.
