What is Chillout
Whilst I can bore you with the technical aspects of the beats per minute, that’s not what drives me when I select the tracks for the Boogaloo playlist. Simply put, tracks are slower. This means you don’t need to rush the moves. You can take more time to think about the music. Dancing starts with the music. Beautiful dancers have great lines: extension, elastic contraction, close holds, pauses. Dance is really not about moves, its about the joy you inspire with your dance partner. It’s about hearing all of the instruments and vocalists in the track and effortlessly turning that musical cacophony, into structured motion. If your tired of the unrelenting beat of chart music and the metronome regularity of your dance motion, then Boogaloo is for you. There is a theatrical phrase that works here: Once More, but with Feeling. Join us on Sunday to chillout with Mark and Crew.
