           Workshop series with Stacie

       NOV 18 - DEC 9


Sundays Nov 18 -Dec 9

1:15 - 2:15 pm

               


In this Tribal Fusion Technique we will explore the

fundamentals of fusion bellydance such as popping, sidewinder,

connecting undulations, arm waves, and mayas, while adding special

combos and transitions to work with the movements.


~  We will work towards strengthening our isolations and adding

more "pop" to our movements while working with waving

techniques to build connectionfrom head to toe.  

~  We will learn special spins and traveling steps,

~  We will explore arm and hand pathways and shapes, and

~  We will work with concepts of character and storytelling in

dance.


This workshop is meant for you to drill and strengthen your

tribal fusion movements, while adding new ideas for you to play

with in your dance.

Saturday Dec 1

2:00 - 4 pm


Oh the SHIMMY!  A quintaessential signature move in bellydance!  Regardless of the style of bellydance that you practice, having beautiful, loose, juicy and strong shimmies is a must! (Plus they offer a fantastic cardio workout!)


In this workshop you will learn a variety of shimmies done in bellydance: Egyptian style shimmies, Turkish shimmies, American shimmy, choo-choo shimmies, different styles of 3/4 shimmies and more!


We will do drills to help you gain the muscle memory to help your shimmies look and feel 'natural' and to bring your shimmies to the next level!


We will work on some creative ways to layer shimmies with arms and other movements and to create mind blowing effects.
