WD055 - Chassidic Dancing & Singing for Fathers & Sons

with Dan Marshall ,   ( FreEMotion/LibrEMocion Repertory Company, Inc. )
Description Learn past & present enchanting melodies & dances dating back to seven generations ago when the Ba'al Shem Tov started the Chassidic movement. 'Worship God (through dance & song) in happiness, come forth to him in joy'. The Ba'al Shem Tov expressed this sentiment (in part) for the sake of all those who were illiterate at the time & found it hard to study, pray & connect with God. Through song & dance they strengthened their bond with God & each other, creating such famous dance forms as the 'Dibbuk' (stuck to (God)). This class will cover both traditional folkloric choreography & improvisational creative movement, chanting & singing, ranging from slow meditations to ecstatic celebrations of movement & spirit. A rare & unforgettable experience!
