When I think of movement I think of dance, which is what I do whenever the spirit moves me. I’ve been taking tap for over 10 years now, and since it combines music/sound and movement I thought it’d be perfect to film and experiment with. I chose So What? from the Kind of Blue album by Miles Davis to tap to, because it’s my go-to music for inspiration.
My “costume” for the piece is realistic, and includes a white GAP tuxedo shirt I bought at my favorite Goodwill Thrift Store, a pair of white shorts from Forever 21, and a pair of black leggings from Ross Dress For Less. Since black and white are traditional colors for tap dancing I thought I’d play around with the palette and give it a unique retro/contemporary twist.
