Hip Hop Dance - Tutting

We are going to be looking at the Hip Hop dance style Tutting!

Tutting is the kind of hip hop style that uses the body’s ability to create geometric shapes, positions (such as boxes) and movements, predominantly with the use of right angles. It generally focuses on the arms and hands, and includes the very famous finger tutting!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

Cool Fact on Tutting!!

Tutting dance is inspired by the art of Ancient Egypt, it presumably originated from people mimicking the poses and angles common in paintings of Ancient Egypt.

 

4 Key Points for Tutting:

  • Tutting must be strong and sharp with smooth transitions.
  • You must keep the right angles that are meant to be achieved within the tutting sequence
  • Arms must stay in high front of the body
  • Lines should not be broken by bent wrists (unless choreographed into tutting sequence) 
  • Make it look interesting and have fun!! :-) Remember to still perform when you are doing your tutting sequences :-)

 Check out the video to see a tutting sequence!! Why not try learning it!!
