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. 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. We will explore a variety of rhythmic systems and concepts from around the world, including polyrhythms,crosspulses, polymeters, phasing, half time/double time, and more.
Keith Terry is a percussionist/rhythm-dancer/educator whose artistic vision has straddled the line between music and dance for more than four decades. He has performed and taught internationally, as well as created festivals and organizations dedicated to the art body music.
Unfortunately, we could not film this workshop due to Keith's contractual obligations with Crosspulse. Click on the photo for more information and video clips of his work.
