To commemorate the release of his album ‘3D’, singer, songwriter, Sherwinn Dupes Brice teamed up with Shaakir ‘Turbo’ Griffith and Omari ‘Marz’ Anderson from Trinidad & Tobago to host two dance workshops on October 21 and 22 respectively.
Marz and Turbo are known as Tarz the Duo, a team that works hard with drive and passion to match. Turbo’s passion was unlocked when he joined an African group with the Belmont Freetown Folk Group and enrolled in a ballet class at the Caribbean School of Dance. He soon merged his classical and folk influence with his love for hip-hop and martial arts, added his own twist and became one of the most sought after dancers in Trinidad.
In fact, Shaakir was called directly by Machel Montano to be one of his dancers in 2014, and has since been a touring dancer with the band. Marz is also a member of the Monk Family and currently runs his own Tumble Gym – ZeroGRaVity. This Flying Monk is known for his incredible high flips and daredevil tricks on stage and plays an important role in the Trinidad dance industry. From performing on the world stage at HipHop International to Travelling the world, Marz has also been featured in music videos, ADs and performed for numerous artistes.
Marz and Turbo were both very impressed with the level of talent of the dancers they interacted with and urged the group to continue pursuing their passion whilst stressing on the importance of being disciplined and determined.
With their mission to raise the awareness of the creative arts on the island through music, the Dupes Did It Music team also filmed a music video for one of the releases on Dupes’ album which will feature the dancers who participated in Saturday’s workshop. When asked about the weekend’s activities, Dupes responded “It’s always amazing to see the power of collaboration and it is inspiring to see how creativity can touch so many lives even in such a short space of time.”
