Join us at Breakin’ Convention for a Masterclass with Soweto Skeleton Movers (South Africa)!
Instructors: Jabulani, Junior, Topollo, Molefi, Lerato
Class Description: In Soweto in the 1950s, commuters developed a dance style known as isparapara inspired by their jumping on and off of moving trains. This was mixed with tap dance and later became known as Pantsula. More than a dance, Pantsula is a lifestyle. Influences can be seen in jazz, breaking, popping, house and bone breaking.
The first half will focus on footwork and body movement and the second half will focus on the spoti (similar to the bucket hat) and a range of tricks and movements using the hat. A rare opportunity to learn Pantsula from some of South Africa’s leading practitioners in their first ever Canadian workshop.
This class is open to all levels of dancers.
