In this improvisation class, participants will engage with Bisola’s teaching method Root-Meter. We will use an improvisational approach with elements of somatic to guide us through the engagement process of Root-Meter. Focusing on the pelvis and spine to explore meters, using breath to flow and explore qualities of flow and undulation through space and Cuban afro and house music to stimulate polyrhythms.

In the practice of Root-Meter, we tap into the seven chakras which correspond to the directives of the Orisha; that assist us in the spiritual awaking of mind and body developed in West African Yoruba movement.

“Yoruba is an ethnic group from West Africa, mainly in Yorubaland in Nigeria, Beinni and Togo and the diaspora in Cuba, Brazil and other parts in the south and north America as well as the UK. As part of the Yoruba culture, the Yoruba religion IFA is a system of divination is a traditional religious and spiritual concept and practice of the Yoruba people. Along with the concept of Orisha. The Orishas are deities sent by Oludumare (God) to assist in the spiritual evolution of humankind.” Bisola Bello
