Cuban timba is an exciting musical genre that has evolved over the years on the Caribbean island. In this class, we have explored how we can take Cuban timba beyond its traditional roots and fuse it with new musical styles, creating a unique and thrilling artistic expression.
One of the key aspects we have addressed is the development of musicality. Musicality is essential for dance interpretation in Cuban timba. It involves a deep understanding of music, including its structure, rhythm, melody, and harmony. Through specific exercises and practices, we have worked on enhancing our ability to feel and respond to Cuban timba music in a more intimate and expressive manner.
This combination of merging Cuban timba with new styles and strengthening our musicality has allowed us to expand our creative possibilities in dance. We are excited about how these skills will enrich our performances and enable us to experiment with different forms of artistic expression in the future.
