Musicality for Dancers: Breaks


This is a mix to support our classes, specifically module H1: Further Concepts in Musicality - Phrase Structure & Breaks.

This mix focuses on typical songs containing a hard break on the last two bars (last 8) of an 8 bar phrase. They are mainly swing songs but there is also an example of an earlier jazz track and a later R&B track, for which the same structure is very common.

Practise recognising when a "stop" is coming, and see if you can punctuate it with your movement.
