SUNDAY WORKSHOPS


Fluid Transitions & Connections

Technique & Choreography

Sunday May 16

Connecting ooey gooey movements can be a magical experience for the dancer and for the audience who experieces a seemless tapestry of movement.

Connecting arms and hands and beautiful lines to your fluid gooey work adds a cherry of enchantment on the top of that magical recipe.

In this workshop we will work through those transitions and connections, put together in a drill-o-graphy (a practice choreography) that you can add to your repertoire or have as a drilling practice.



Vintage American Cabaret inspired Choreography

Sunday May 31

American Cabaret was born in the nightclubs of New York, San Franscisco, LA and Chicago in the 50s. The dance that developed was the first “fusion” of sorts, reflecting the cultural richness of the environment that gave birth to it.

The scene is a multicultural melting pot in which the music and dance traditions of immigrants from the Middle East and the Mediterranean would come together to create a new art form that blended Arabic, Greek, Turkish, & Egyptian music, songs, folklore traditions and bellydance styles with an additional American flavour.

An art form in its own right and with its own multicultural roots.

AmCab involved enchanting veil-work, floorwork, dramatic moves, finger cymbals and often other props as well such as candles and swords.

In this workshop students will learn some characteristic AmCab moves and stylisations working with veil and introducing a little bit of floorwork. They will also have the choice to add zills at a later time and/or other props.


Video of each workshop will be provided to all participants.
