Shake That… Porto Swing

Dancing at Porto

This is one of our little choreography routine to Mora’s Modern Rhythmists’ version of “Shake that Thing” we taught at our solo jazz class in Quebec City/Porto Swing last weekend. Because we only had one hour for the class, Myriam and I wanted to work on similar structure of moves (in this case, fall off the log’ISH variations) instead of overloading them with a lot of “moves”. What is always fun for me as a teacher is to try to get my students to trust their body so they can focus on the great aspects of solo dancing – being silly, having fun, and of course flailing your arms around.

Thanks so much Lionel Mauvais for inviting us and making us feel so welcomed, even with my very poor francais.
