What is Eccentric Dance?
You’ve seen it in Chaplin’s Little Tramp and the Scarecrow in The Wizard of Oz, Groucho’s twist kicks and John Cleese’s Ministry of Funny Walks, in Goofy, in the Moonwalk, and in Hip Hop. Eccentric Dance is a universal language, dating back to ancient pantomimic movement, that continues to entertain through visual storytelling. And when that movement is costumed in personality, comic in intent, flexible in execution, a parody of character, and poetry in motion, you have the Eccentric Dancer. This is the story of how movement became dance, and how dance became funny. This is The Choreography of Comedy and the Art of Eccentric Dance!
