Wendy Bhagwati Broadway Workshops

November 18, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - November 19, 2016 @ 4:00 pm

Alchemy in Motion is proud to present two amazing workshops with Wendy Bhagwati Broadway from Masala Movements Nov. 18 (Delmar, NY) and Nov. 19 (Gloversville, NY).

Wendy will be teaching two classes that are available a la carte or $100 for a weekend package deal (payable by check or PayPal):

Understanding the Art, Science, and Math of Musical Phrasing
6-9 p.m. Friday, Nov. 18 at RDI Dance Studio, 160 Delaware Ave., Delmar NY
– $65 a la carte or included in package deal

Dance WITH the music instead of merely on TOP of the music. We’ll deconstruct music by its count and melodic voice as well as count along with the music with the ultimate goal of being able to find the top of a phrase as well as the ability to dance while maintaining count. This skill is imperative for the group improvisational performer. Learn how to script your performance music in a readable narrative whether for you or your students. Additionally, learn the difference between musician speak and dancer speak. Yes, they count music differently! If we’re dancers then we should be counting music for our students, as a dancer and not as a musician. Feel free to bring a drum if you have one (not mandatory) and we’ll review a few of the most popular Middle Eastern rhythms. Many walked away from this workshop stating that they’ll never hear music the same way again.

Wendy’s Finger Cymbal Format with Choreo

1-4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 19 at the Reheasal Space (3rd Floow) The Glove Theatre, 42 North Main St., Gloversville, NY
– $65 a la carte or included in package deal

Expand our finger cymbal repertoire with the implementation of a variety of rhythmic patterns, improvisationally! Why merely play the triplet the entire time? Learn Wendy’s secrets of how to incorporate multiple into one song. In addition to reviewing the patterns from her June workshop, we’ll work on the famous Moroccan Six and Turkish Kashlima! The workshop will culminate with learning a group tribal fusion choreography that will be performed as part of the Circus of Dreams show at the theater that night! (Please note: performers will be asked to dress in all black for this number.)
