A couple of weekends ago was the last Fog City Stomp in the Bay Area. 😨 The dance weekend finished on a strong note with many amazing moments, including this incredible improvised performance by multi-genre dancer Latasha Barnes and exceptional drummer Josh Collazo. I see solo jazz, house, African, and waacking expressions in Tasha’s solo, and I’m sure I missed a few references.
In related vids, check out this animation of Latasha created by Serge Marcoux.
