In this episode, my special guest, Laura Riva talk about what makes a dance a legitimate style versus a new dance, dance traditions, culture and more! 

    • Intro Song:
      • Tarada – DJ Nice Life
  • Key Points:
    • If it’s (newer styles) music that resonates you, and it’s a pattern of movement that stimulates my creativity and expression – but this does not mean you don’t educate yourself about the technique or history of the dance.
    • One perspective is, illegitimacy only exists where an individual does not understand the fundamental pillars of technique and still chooses to claim ownership of the dance.
    • Dancers need to understand that every dance is multi-faceted. Our dances cannot exist in a vacuum; outside forces, regional culture, and individual inspiration will shape the face of all variations of every dance.
