Imagine every song from every musical, script pages and character descriptions, all stored in one big room, neatly, organised until it is hit by a tornado!
With their musical memories a little wonky, a team come together to try and sort these musical ingredients… however no one can remember who or what goes with what!
Join us for our 3 day fun filled musical camp… we’ll be picking our favourite songs, characters and story lines from the best musicals and creating the Greatest Musical Never Written!
This 3 day camp will involve dance, drama, group singing, stage management, costumes and prop making, plus lots of fun! Just £35 for 3 days (10 am to 2:30pm) with a short performance on Thursday 25th at 2pm.
(If you can’t make all 3 its just £13 per day, £24 for 2 days)
Sessions run in our dance studio, downstairs in Kenton Park Sports Centre, Anfield Road, Kenton.
But before we panic – just think about what we learned on Monday and you will be fine!
Botofogo (or Boto- fogo)
This is a dance step in Samba but is used in various other styles too.
It is a step taken across the body, for example on the right foot, with a flat foot. Then followed by a “ball change” movement onto the left foot using a side step with a little weight transfer. Then step back onto the right foot – flat footed.
It is a 3 part step done in two counts – 1 and 2. The first two steps are quicker than the third, on the beats “one and” and the final step slower on the 3 beat or count 2.
A step ball change can be a triplet, as can a botofogo.
It is the counts that are important for this step so getting your children to udnerstand the music and its beats is key.
To help them understand the counts – start listening to different types of music and clap along to the basic beat -“1,2,3,4” – try it with faster and slower tracks.
Then try clapping “1,&,2,&,3,&,4,&” these are the half beats so in a 4 beat bar you clap 8 times.
Then try mixing it up with “1,&,2,3,&,4” so you clap the rhythm of a triplet (quick, quick, slow)
