Dancing is often considered a form of body language, and this holds true. Professional dancers like Tanya Georgievska and Sondre Olsen-By use their emotional performances to convey their inner thoughts and feelings to the audience. Recently, they showcased their talents to the lively beats of the classic track “Rock Around the Clock,” which originally made waves on the British music scene during the 1950s. This pivotal moment played a significant role in the global evolution of music, not just in Europe but around the world.
“Rock Around the Clock,” brought to life by Bill Haley and his band The Comets, is renowned as one of the pioneering recordings of the rock and roll genre, contributing substantially to its widespread popularity. Penned by Americans Max Friedman and James Myers in 1952, the song caught the attention of Bill Haley during his successful performance of the hit “Crazy Man, Crazy.”
In their performances, Tanya and Sondre consistently opt for high-energy tracks to ensure the audience remains engaged and inspired, often leading them to join in the dancing. Their chosen dance style, boogie-woogie, originated in the late 19th century, taking shape in the 1870s under the influence of Texas pianists. Tanya and Sondre’s preference for this particular style resonates well with their chosen song, creating an infectious and vibrant atmosphere. What sets this dance duo apart is their profound passion and emotional depth displayed through their art. Boogie-woogie has become their signature style, reflecting their unique expression of love through dance.
Collaborating since 2015, Tanya and Sondre have participated in numerous competitions, securing notable accolades along the way. Their shared love for travel and performance has garnered them a dedicated following wherever they go. Spectators are drawn to their captivating routines, often attempting to mimic their dance moves. Beyond their performances, Tanya and Sondre are committed to imparting their dancing expertise to others, sharing their technical skills and artistry with aspiring dancers.
