Heather Cornell masterclasses 28th & 29th May 2016

from 25.00

Master tap dancer Heather Cornell will soon be over from New York. Heather is well known for her 11 day intensive training programmes, so we've invited her to teach a mini intensive in a special four hour session (Sunday, 9:30am at Danceworks), allowing for a fuller opportunity to experience her musical approach. Heather has a unique approach to dancing and teaching which is closely connected with the music. This is a great opportunity to work on musicality and the role of tap as a percussion instrument within a jazz ensemble.

Beginners won't be left out - there will be a 90 minute class on Saturday 28th at Pineapple Dance Studios, 5:30pm.

About Heather Cornell

"The Oscar Peterson of Hoofin" - Toronto Globemail

Heather Cornell is known for using tap as her percussive instrument in many different music ensembles. Her company, Manhattan Tap, was the top booked tap company in the 80’s and 90’s, worldwide. She is considered one of the most musical dancers working today and has revolutionized the way that tap dance is presented. Her shows have been presented consistently in countries around the world for the past 30 years.

Her recent project, Making Music Dance, celebrates the rich and broad tonalities inherent in the worlds of tap and flamenco. Add to that the trance-like drive of African balafon, the ethereal phrasing of electric violin and the percussive stylings of flamenco guitar, and you get a brand new take on world music! The show is elegant, intense and trancelike all at once. “Pulsating world rhythm – percussive dance in an entirely new context”.
