Joe Thomas uses only percussive instruments on this CD for a modern dance class. With the help of Melanie Aceto, Joe presents a combination of rhythms which are perfect for the Humphrey - Weidman based class. From the slow floor warm-up to the driving motor rhythm, this music is perfect for modern dance study. The music is extremely focused since there is no melody and only drums to give a sense of movement. Several of the tracks are very long, giving plenty of music to do exercises repeatedly without stopping. This CD provides lots of fun sounds that make you smile and plenty of energy to keep you moving.
