Tell me more about it

All the music was written in collaboration with teachers and students of the dance department at the Idea Store Learning in Whitechapel, London, and is perfect for contemporary beginners and improvers level. Most exercises are in simple time (2/4, 4/4, 3/4), with a few selections in 5 or 7, to begin introducing more complex counts. However, the musical phrasing is always even.

“Dancing to Andy’s music adds a refreshing dimension to dance class. His music is always beautifully textured and it allows me to explore different movement styles to match the various musical layers.”

-Anusha, contemporary dance student at Idea Store Learning.

All music written and produced by Andy Higgs.
