#BBHotshots: New BBA House Leader JJ Dictates Biggie’s task to Create a “Stomp” Dance. Housemates went all in and wagered 100% for the “Stomp” dance performance piece that they were tasked with creating this afternoon. Taken from “Stomp the Yard” the hit movie about “stepping” battles between rival college fraternities and sororities, stomping was a form of contemporary dance steeped in percussive movement characterized by expressive, heavy and sometimes aggressive movement and motion. It was essentially the use of the body as an instrument, the use of it more as a drum.
The “Stomping” equivalent in some parts of the African continent was a variation of Gum Boot dancing which was also based in a creating a rhythm and melody based in percussion; once again using the body as an instrument.
The housemates, however, were to stomp with each other and not against one another. They were to use song, dance, rap and writing to craft a Stomp dance performance and work towards a unified presentation. SEE MORE ON PAGE 2
