Soul Sessions Oslo
Soul Sessions Oslo (SSO) is an organization that works to promote hiphop culture in Norway in the form of drug-free events featuring street dance in focus. SSO organize jams, battles, open practices and workshops. They want to inspire Norwegian dancers, DJs and other artists within club and street genre by inviting some of the best in their field from abroad. The organization has in recent years organized Soul Sessions Extended – Norway’s biggest street dance festival.
House is a dance where we use a lot of footwork, rhythms and coordination. This dance style is influenced by and a fusion of african dance, latin, capoeira, tap, lindy hop, jazz and many more. We dance to house music – that’s where the name comes from. House dance is playful and came to life in the clubs. The dancers use their cultural background and dance background to develop their own personal style.
Within the urban dances styles there are techniques and specific ways to move that the dancers should follow when they battle, In experimental you can step outside your comfort zone and let your body take over. You can use techniques from styles you already know and/or just DANCE however you feel like in that moment.
