Dancehall Origins 3rd Edition took place in London on Saturday 18 November, with invited artists Latonya Style (teaching for the first time ever in the UK) and Global Bob – back by popular demand.
We started the day with a panel discussion between Latonya and Global Bob, chaired by renowned choreographer and storyteller “H” Patten. The artists spoke honestly about their journey within Dancehall, problems facing Jamaican artists at home and abroad, and their respective goals for the future.
After this, Latonya guided us through basic principles of female steps, including whine and juk, right up to her own ‘Stylish Moves’ – spelling L.O.N.D.O.N with her unique choreography. Global Bob kept things old skool, sharing invaluable knowledge, but gave a whole new energy we’d never experienced before!
Five hours of Dancehall excellence!
