Make plans to join us at 1 pm on Tuesday, February 19 (school vacation week!) for a program with Brian Gillie.
Join Brian’s dance safari to first learn some dance history and what it takes to create a dance. Then help Brian complete a musical phrase or funky dance, sometimes to the monster rhythms from Brian’s newly acclaimed CD, Different Drummer and sometimes to a current radio hip-hop hit. Inner vision = outward COOL! Did you know that the world’s greatest dances were invented by people just like you? You, too, can be an amazing, creative dancing machine!
Brian says, “I expect everyone to arrive at the performance prepared to cut a rug, strut some stuff and boogie down.” Laugh, think, create and fill your space with ultimate hipness! So don’t forget to bring your dancing shoes!
Long-time international performer, dance educator, swing dance choreographer, singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Brian has been offering dance, song and creativity concerts, assembly programs and workshops through Young Audiences of Connecticut since 1983. He is a Young Audience’s Performance Artist of the Year.
