Brenda Bufalino's Tap Intensive Part 2 - "BS Chorus" & "Old Soft Shoe"
Taught by Brenda Bufalino
Tap Level: Mixed Levels
B.S. Chorus / Old Soft Shoe Chorus (1) A traditional chorus that includes the Bill Robinson Time Step, "Cross" and "Wing" Steps, "Over the Tops", and "Trenches". This flash chorus, though often executed in an offhand manner, includes figures and manipulations which are essential to the creations ofperiod routines. (2) This lovely chorus, though deceptively simple and often executed by Honi Coles & the Copasetics in a comic fashion, is a dance of graceful movement & beautiful rhythmic patterns.
Filmed at Woodpeckers Tap Dance Center, 1995
