Klezmer, Bollywood and Rock: Get your groove on with the Helix Collective!
Classical Revolution LA’s resident ensemble, Helix Collective, plays mash-ups of Bollywood, Klezmer, Waltzes, Rags and Rock and teaches you all the right moves to join in! Behind the music is a line-up of seasoned and up-start composers, all with a talent for writing music that rocks! You’ll wiggle your hips to film composer Mark Weiser’s Bollywood Dances. Next you’ll grab a partner for the Waltz, and circle dance to the Klezmer, by New York composer Stephen Dankner. Venezuelan composer and dance bandleader Victor Marquez will take you down south and then Phil Popham’s Knights Ho Gals and Ram-Tam Thank you Ma’am, will give you a chance to head-bang Renaissance-style. You’ve never been to a dance club like this one!
