Contrasting fluid technique with quick isolations + musicality = WHOA.

In this workshop we’ll learn how to develop the contrasting qualities of fluid and percussive. We’ll experience two different types of practice: One to build both flexibility and control for slow movements, and one for speed for clean hip-work and locks.

This 3 hour workshop has two segments of 90 minutes each:

Part One: We’ll learn learn how to gain speed and clarity for locks, hip-work, and several shimmies through a carefully constructed practice sequence.

Part Two: We’ll learn phrases that integrate both slow and fast movements, and serves up a heavy dose of musical interpretation. You can use these combos for practice or performance.

Please be warmed up for this class. Bring water.


Tricky-Gooey-Shimmy: Guiding Principles of Datura Style
Saturday 2:00-6:00pm

Combine American Cabaret and Fusion styles of belly dance with a heady dose of rhythmic trickery, contrast, and dramatic quality changes. Chill. Lay these on a bed of rib cage circles, seemingly boneless arm work, and huge, relaxed hips for a double-layered-triple-threat. Serve hot.

You learn them, they’re yours. Use these combinations in your next choreography or integrate these Datura Style combos into your improvisational vocabulary.

Experience with belly dance recommended, these will be complex. Brush up on your spins and isolations for this one, bring a towel and water bottle.


Past, Present, Future: Arabic Rhythms in Electronic Music
Sunday 12:00-4:00pm

Western popular music is catching on to the power of Arabic Rhythms in a big way. In this class you’ll learn versatile combos that would work as well with a classic belly dance set or a festival stage to electronic music.

Please bring a yoga mat, water, and a way to record after class if you want to film yourself.
