Original artwork. "Boogie-Woogie". 121.5 x 91.5 cm. Acrylic on canvas, varnished, ready to hang.

This artwork is a tribute to the very popular dance, which is usually performed by two partners.

A few words about this dance:

Boogie-woogie is a form of swing dance and a form of blues piano playing.

Boogie woogie was popular among the poorer African American communities, especially in Chicago, New York, and Detroit. The term boogie was associated with the idea of a house rent party, where neighbors would gather together and pay a small fee to listen to boogie woogie music played by a local musician.

In 1928 Pinetop Smith created the first official Boogie-Woogie song called Pinetop's Boogie Woogie. He instructed dancers in his song how to dance, but it was merely a list of figures and instructions on when to start or stop. 

Also, Boogie woogie can be performed as a competition dance. In this case it is a led dance, not choreographed, and can contain acrobatic elements, but not like in acrobatic rock'n'roll. Mainly the couples have to maintain some contact during the acrobatics. This rule helps to avoid moves like double/triple saltos and the like.


Please find some transcription clues for this artwork below:

There are two dancers - a man in black, and a lady in pink.

The complicated pattern reflects a fast pace swing dance with some acrobatic movements.

There is plenty of other stuff to find. Good luck!
