For Edz Gyamfi, dance is a lot bigger than just movements. “Steps are just steps. Being able to not only understand the movements but understanding the culture and really immersing yourself in the culture is everything.” And he did just that when he began learning the roots of dancehall from a Jamaican dance crew based in Ottawa.
In this episode, Edz grooves us through two classic dancehall moves: “Back to Basics,” from dancehall icon Bogle, and “Easy Does It,” a CariUrban move by Jack Judson. Gerald “Bogle” Levy was seen as an innovator in the Jamaican dance scene — a legend who many credit as creating infectious dance moves that simultaneously influenced the music and helped commercialize dancehall culture on a global scale.
