Baladi Progression with Helena Vlahos & Musicians of Savicto

  • DanceGardenLA 3191 Casitas Ave, Ste 112, Los Angeles, California 90039 (map)

Wow, wow, WOW! Helena Vlahos teams up with Victoria Carter and An-Liang Cheng for what is sure to be one of the most fun and educational dance workshops! Break down baladi progression, which starts with a taqsim followed by a call and response between the drum and another instrument, gradually building into an exciting, rapid finish with experienced dancer AND musicians! Accordion & percussion player Vicki will share her knowledge of the ins and outs of baladi solos: the different types, their history of origin, the scales used, the rhythms used and the “formula”, while Helena will share her years of experience in how to move the body in harmony with the different portions of the baladi progression, interpreting the music with your movement and maximizing the effect on your sure-to-be-rapt audience!
