Line Dancing and Double Dutch in Newark






{{:~equal(data.asset.type, 'video')}}





Recently on the PATH train to Newark, I heard two little girls playing a handclapping game and singing
out four-beat rhythms about a pop diva.

Will she be famous? Chorus: (Famous, famous, famous)

Will she be on TV? Chorus: (TV, TV, TV, TV)

Will she get Botox? Chorus: (B-O-T-O-X)

Will she ride in a car all day? Chorus: (all day all night)

Will she sing songs? Chorus: (many songs, many songs, so many)

In the rocking train, as we rounded the Passaic river, that curve of water that tells me I’m home, I just had to smile. The rail rattle seemed like a background to their song, their commentary on the world.

According to TED speaker, professor, and author Dr. Kyra Gaunt, Ph.D., girl’s games like double dutch relate to African-American musical traditions in that they are about “exploring one’s kinetic potential and energy in a significant span of musical time and space.” Chants and the percussive, intricate movements of kicks, flips, and other complicated moves, the urging of the turner to the jumper to keep time, make for a unique art form perfected by urban youth.

The young women of FloydLittle Double Dutch Team are young Newark women whose mastery of double dutch is mesmerizing to watch. Founded by Laila Little and Shaquannah Floyd, the team went on to compete in the American Double Dutch League's 40th annual World Invitational Championship, placing first in two categories, second in six, and fourth in one. Then, Lifetime created and aired a documentary series about the team, an invite to perform at the White House Easter celebration, and to open up the 2014 BET Awards with Pharrell and Missy Elliot. The girl’s ropes move so fast that they appear to be bands of light in some technologically augmented reality. But it’s all real, sweat and grace and skill. You won’t be able to look away. Their grace and intensity are inspiring, and the larger public recognition of their gifts as individuals and in the community is so welcome!

The league’s origins date to 1970s NYC, when two police detectives organized a double dutch tournament. Vintage 1980’s footage shot by the artist, documentarian, and video freak Skip Blumberg can be seen on YouTube, Google his feature “Pick Up Your Feet.” The young women competing are fantastic, raw, and full of life. I couldn’t help but wonder what Newark’s young women were up to game-wise, around the same time. I bet they danced hard. While the league allowed professional recognition of the game as a sport, the songs were sung, and this aspect of girl culture was deemphasized. So many songs, so many. Dr. Gaunt argues that discussions of commercial popular music often exclude the communal music-making forms that are part of girl culture, and that in fact these traditions and their innovators are a sophisticated transmission of Black musical expression.

If you can’t bear to stay on the sidelines cheering on the youth, the Soul Line Dance Party at Newark Symphony Hall is the 2nd Friday of every month. See you on August 14th! This is, as they say, some serious grown folks fun. $5 (!) gets you lessons and dancing with Kenny J, Xman & Step 4 Step Soul Lind Dancers, or Najah & The Brick City Soul Line Dancers and upwards of 500 other new friends. Catered dinners are available all night till midnight, with a cash bar to quench the thirst you are going to work up.

Get tickets at the symphony box office. Old school: Newark Symphony Hall, originally known as the Salaam Temple, was built in 1925 by the Shriners. Later, Lena Donaldson Griffith, of Griffith Piano fame, assumed management. When I think of the hall, the mixed Greek and Egyptian motifs in gold leaf, and the enormous columns, I see a blur as the marquee letters are rearranged millions and millions of times by hand, from a ladder. It’s a blur across decades: Vaudeville, “talkies,” Arturo Toscanini, Vladimir Horowitz, Marian Anderson, William Warfield, Lily Pons, and George Gershwin, dancers from Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo and the New Jersey Ballet Company, the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra, the New Jersey State Opera, and the Theatre of Universal Images, Newark Boys Chorus, Victor Borge, Patti LaBelle, Teddy Pendergrass, Richard Pryor, James Cleveland, Iyanla VanZant, Kirk Franklin, Sinbad, Queen Latifah, Jimi Hendrix, Gladys Knight, the Temptations, the O’Jays, Jerome Hines, Beverly Sills, Roberta Peters, Leontyne Price, Robert Merrill, and on and on and on and on.

The song never stops. And once you learn how to keep time with your feet, you won’t either.

Evonne M. Davis and Emma Wilcox are working artists and co-founders of a Newark alternative arts nonprofit. Begun in 2003, Gallery Aferro offers exhibitions featuring local, national, and international artists, a wide range of public events, a year-round studio residency program, educational offerings, group tours, a publication line, a gift shop, and public art initiatives.

Traditional Dutch dances: the most famous

It may be important to make a distinction between what is folk dance in Holland and what is Dutch folk dance. i explain , the traditional dance is a dutch folk dance that originated in ancient villages to please people during holidays throughout the year, and there are a great many of them. And these days, dances are still being created that retain the air of popularity, but are new, and some of them have nothing to do with traditional music. nine0066

In general, I will say that traditional Dutch dances are danced by villagers, and with some very peculiar shoes (and from my point of view uncomfortable for dancing) clogs. This is because the clogs were the shoes chosen for going to church, and at the same time, it looked like the place chosen for the celebration.

actually most of Holland's folk dances are of Scottish origin like Skotse trije, Skotse fjouwer, Horlepiep... I'll tell you about them later. In the east of Holland, there are dances such as Driekusman, Hoksebarger, Veleta, Kruispolka and Waltz Spaanse, which are of German origin. nine0010


  • 1 Scottish dances: Skotse trije, Skotse fjouwer, Horlepiep.
  • 2 Dances of German origin: Drikusman, Hocksebarger, Veleta, Kruispolka and Spaanse Waltz.
  • 3 Traditional Dutch dances today
  • 4 New trends in Dutch dance

Scottish dances: Skotse trije, Skotse fjouwer, Horlepiep.

These dances Skoce three0066 fuwer , Horlepipe they are more typical of fishing ports on the North Sea coast and are heavily influenced by the dances of Scotland and England.

Skotse trije, this dance, whose origin is not really known but attributed to the Scots, is a complex dance consisting of a salute and a chain.

Horlepip is a dance that used to be danced only in a group of sailors. It is known that it came to Holland in the XNUMXth century and is the most popular among tourists visiting the country. nine0010

Dances of German origin: Drikusman, Hocksebarger, Veleta, Kruispolka and Spaanse Waltz.

Another large group of Dutch dances are those with German influences. Driekusman a very popular dance, especially in the fifties of the twentieth century, it speaks of an impossible love or uncontrollable. El Wals Spanish , The Spanish Waltz, considered the most elegant of dances, is a slow dance that originated in Tyrol, Austria around the 12th century, from where it spread to southern Germany. nine0010

Traditional dances of Holland today

Today new choreographies are realized based on patterns or templates of traditional music, more dynamic and timely. . To maintain these traditions there is the Federation of Folk Groups in the Netherlands, where in addition to attaching great importance to music, they preserve typical clothes and songs written in languages ​​other than Latin.

Since the last decade of the last century, 9The 0065 phenomenon called Balfolk is a group of people who get together most of the time to dance European folk dances in the traditional way with live orchestras. . During these meetings, there is usually an initiation workshop for the curious first, and then he moves on to dancing. It was these organizations that later laid the foundation for traditional music festivals in the Low Country.

New trends in Dutch dance

Moreover The Dutch are the originators of the word Hakken, which comes from the verb hakken, which means to cut or hack. nine0066 This is a type of rave dance that is primarily associated with the Gabber subculture. It was danced primarily in the techno and hardcore gabber scene of the 1990s. Trying to get a little bit of what the movements look like, you take small steps that quickly follow each other, as well as moving your arms and torso.

On the other hand, Jumpen, which was invented in Belgium, was more successful among the Dutch neighbors, who brought in a whole range of Jumpstyle, creating a real revolution and evolution of this dance style, which cannot be considered folklore, but perhaps already has a category traditional on the street scene of Amsterdam and other Dutch cities.
