THE PROGRAM - DAY 1
SATURDAY AUGUST 19
10:30AM - 3:30PM
DRILLS & COMBINATIONS:
This session is a deep dive into the intricate layers of Fusion Bellydance body isolations, fluidity and musicality, building a strong foundational technical base. We will explore new pathways through learning slinky combination. The workshop will start with a 30-minute-deep conditioning practice to wake up the body!
UNDERSTANDING TIME SIGNATURES (TO IMPROVE YOUR DANCE!):
Understanding musicality and learning to count time signatures in 4/4 rhythm enhances your dance! By understanding the nuance of speed and tempo, you will develop a better sense of control and precision, elevating your technique and allowing for a deeper connection between movements and the rhythm of music.
Improvisation can be intimidating and yet it is a wonderful tool to work on presence and connection to the body. This workshop will explore key concepts in improvisation such as textures, movement focus & musicality. Having a framework can help the mind detach to allow the body to fully express itself
THE PROGRAM - DAY 2
SUNDAY AUGUST 20

In the combinations workshop we will delve into the art of blending sharp isolation work with serpentine slink, creating depth and texture to a mini choreography. This workshop will teach you interesting movement pathways that will be adapted in the Choreography Tools session.
This interactive workshop will explore choreography tools and exercises that will assist you in your own choreography process. We will use these tools to adapt the combination from the previous session while allowing you to express your own unique artistic voice.
