~A Dancer’s Hands & Arms~ 12:00pm – 2:00pm
Arms are an extension of your body and an integral part of your dance–not just appendages. This workshop will train you to incorporate your hands and arms into your dance. You will also learn the key to minimizing pointy elbows and floppy wrists.
We will explore framing arms, expressive arms, fluid arms, and the balletic concept of “epaulement”. This finishing touch makes all the difference in polished belly dance technique!
~Foundations of Grace: Ballet for Belly Dancers~ 2:15pm – 4:15pm
Come discover what ballet skills can do for your belly dancing. But don’t worry about your toes–we won’t be doing pointe (aka toe). In this workshop, you will learn how ballet principles and vocabulary can give you graceful lines, stronger balance, better control, and more stable turns.
This workshop will distill key movements and combinations from the ballet vocabulary that are useful to belly dancers. Rosa will demystify the terminology frequently used by the Reda company and by contemporary belly dance choreographers like pas de bouree, chasse, rond de jambe, chaine turns and much more. Soft-soled dance slippers are recommended.
Take advantage of our Early Bird Special! $50 per workshops or $80 for both. Early Bird Special ends March 31st 2017. After March 31st the cost will increase to $60 per workshop or $100 for both.
