Rosina June & Dani
Wicked Games Choreography
Dani and Rosina are excited to share their latest choreography collaboration to MEDANZ. Inspired by San Francisco style belly dance we have put together an elegant choreography to a beautiful string quartet composition by Irianian-German composer Ramin Djawadi. Known for his Emmy award winning compositions, Djawadi has created this elegant haunting cover of The Weekend’s Wicked Games.
This instrumental song full of soothing cellos, emotive violins and dramatic drums reveals a conversation between accents and harmonic melody lines.
Strong on musicality, this choreography is infused with pop and locks, slinkly taxim, floor work, fusion technique plus the addition of some modern dance influences. We will also leave room for you to put your own voice in the choreography with thematically structured improvisation if you choose.
Intermediate/advanced level but enthusiastic beginners are welcome!
We recommend bringing socks to protect your feet. We will also provide alternative movement for floor work.
