In this percussive workshop, participants will learn the basics of this contemporary style of step-dancing, which blends step dance and body percussion – starting at the feet then gradually moving through the rest of the body, allowing it to become a full instrument. Working with specific rhythms and poly-rhythms, this active approach will keep participants moving throughout the entire class. This workshop is for anyone who wants to have fun.

Inspired by elements of heritage and cultural diversity found in urban areas, Montreal-based [ZØGMA] merges dance, music and song into powerful rhythmic works, creating a new aesthetic of Quebec folklore. Incorporating the rhythm, images and characters of a city, Sokalo is a show that moves – both literally and figuratively. Featuring lively music composed by Julien Roy, eight performers offer a rhythmic experience that invites the audience to travel along with them. Sokalo is all about urban rhythms that imitate life.

Remember when you used to listen to an entire album? Classic Albums Live does. This group of skilled musicians recreates the greatest albums of the ’60s and ’70s live on stage – note for note, cut for cut.
Meat Loaf’s major label debut, Bat Out of Hell, is one of the best-selling albums in the history of recorded music. Considered one of the most influential and iconic albums of its time, the 1977 release combines elements of hard rock, pop, theatre and opera. Bat Out of Hell includes hard rock staples like “Paradise by the Dashboard Light,” “Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad” and of course, the title track. This album forever changed the way the world thinks about rock ‘n’ roll.
