In this class, participants will engage with Bisola Bello’s teaching method Root-Meter. We will use an improvisational approach with elements of somatic practices to guide us through the engagement process of West African movement forms. Focusing on the pelvis and spine to explore meters, using breath to flow and explore qualities of vibration and undulation through space and Cuban Afro music to stimulate polyrhythms. All are welcome.

In the practice of Root-Meter, we tap into the 7 chakras whose modes correspond to the directives of the Orisha; these assist us in the spiritual awaking of mind and body that is developed in West African Yoruba movement.
