Learn Norma Miller’s Trickeration routine and join other local dancers as we record a video to contribute to the Global Trickeration Project to Honour Norma Miller for what would have been her 100th birthday this December.
September 25 and October 9 with Lucy and Lindsay
7:30-9pm at EDAM, 303 East 8th Ave
The Trickeration routine as it was taught by Norma is a routine that Norma “borrowed” from thechorus dancers at Harlem’s Apollo theatre probably in the mid to late 1930’s. The piece of the routine that Norma uses and teaches is only a part of a larger original routine that has been lost to time. Norma would use the routine similarly to the way tap dancers use the BS chorus, to fill in spaces in her choreography and as a go to for classic Jazz steps. She used it as an audition piece for the Norma Miller dancers and also used pieces of this intermixed with other Lindy and Jazz choreography.
