What’s Better Dance or Mathematics?

This interesting article compares dance to the study of Mathematics. Our opinion, learning to dance is even more important 😉

Learning salsa is as important as mastering calculus, a leading international education expert says.

Sir Ken Robinson knows his views are provocative but says there’s plenty of evidence to back them up.

“Dance is just as important as mathematics in schools,” he said.

Contemporary and Ballroom Fusion

I found this on the Passion4Dancing Blog. Leon writes:

Could a Pasodoble mixed with contemporary style look good? Watch this video to find out. This is Denys Drozdyuk’s audition video from the TV show “So You Think You Can Dance Canada”. What do you think?

Tell us what you think in the comments below, does it work?

Amazing Anniversary Event!

Congratulations to all the performers from last nights party! Adults and children. You were all amazing!

Can Israelis Dance?

You bet! Many Israeli born dancers are receiving tremendous recognition for their accomplishments.  Even tap dancing! Two of these Israelis are Avi Miller and Ofer Ben, who will be guest artists at DanceTeacher Summit in New York City this summer.  Taken from DanceTeacher summit here is a bit more on these two Israeli dancers/Hoofers, they’ve even created their own line of tap shoes.

Native Israelis, Avi Miller and Ofer Ben are tap dancers, performers, teachers, and lecturers – in the unlimited rhythmical dance field of ‘Hoofing’. Their unique style and choreographies are influenced by the large amount of teachers and mentors they studies with, each linked directly to the origins of tap. But, due to their country of origin, they also incorporate in their work ‘Middle Eastern’ and Israeli movements which they studied from their late Israeli Master Ya’acov Kalusky. In class they teach various approaches to a ‘Quality of Sound Technique’ as well as verbal references to the history and heritage of ‘Rhythm Tap’ all wrapped up in humor and fun.

Their tap dancing experience spans on over 35 years and in countries such as: Australia, Canada, China, Finland, Holland, Israel, Japan, Thailand and throughout the USA. They perform as a duo: ‘Miller & Ben – The Israeli Hoofers’ or with their professional company: ‘Tap Tel-Aviv Dance Troupe’.

In 2001, they relocated the Jazz Tap Center, Inc. production offices to New York. They established the not-for-profit incorporation: Tradition In Tap, Inc. – an organization that produces tap workshops and performances devoted to the preservation of various tap masters’ historic legacy and technique. Updated and extensive information can be found at: www.TraditionInTap.org.

In February 2003, they started to manufacture their Miller & Ben Tap Shoes in the Far East. These hand-made High Quality / High End ‘Musical Tap Instruments’, are elegant, comfortable, hand-made shoes, in eight models and 48 colors and patterns. The shoes are sold via their on-line store: http://www.TapEmporium.com and in selected dance stores in the USA and around the world.

Credited appearances includes: the tribute performance and TV documentary for The 9 Doctors of Tap Dance – Oklahoma City University, Tap Extravaganza – New York City, The New York City Tap Festival, The St. Louis Tap Festival, The Oklahoma City Tap Festival, Southeastern Tap Explosion – Atlanta GA, Tap Workshops at Chulalongkorn University and Bangkok Dance – Thailand, Artn-Tap studios in Tokyo – Japan, Tap Giants Festival in Calgary and Edmonton – Canada, Michelle’s Dream Festival and workshops at de TAPperij in Zwolle – Holland, tap master classes and judging for Dance Masters of Pennsylvania and Massachusetts, ‘T.A.P.’ – National Tap Dance Day Celebration – Cedar Crest College, PA, Dance Studio LIFE Magazine Teacher’s Conferences, and the Broadway Dance Center annual Teachers’ Workshops in New York City.

Avi Miller & Ofer Ben were featured in July 2007 on the cover of Dancer Magazine and together with Germaine Salsberg, they were honored in March 2009, with The Preservation of Our Heritage Award in American Dance by Oklahoma City University. They ‘team-teach’ regularly at Broadway Dance Center in Manhattan.
