Dancehall/Caribbean with Toni Alleyne
at Studio Zahiya
($30)

What is the Dancehall/Caribbean dance style? Words used to describe Caribbean dance include fluid, sensual, and rhythmic. Many dance styles are social, often experienced at Carnival, dance halls or other celebrations. These dances are often polyrhythmic, which means dancers move to multiple competing rhythms in the music. The dances are sometimes polycentric, with different parts of the body moving at the same time, or they reflect elements of body isolation, where the dance at some point focuses on one body part.
