July 9 at Twisted Dance Studio in Gboro! I will be teaching two awesome workshops and giving a FREE lecture about the history of bellydance!

Both workshops are open to all dancers, regardless of skill level or stylistic persuasion. I try to include something for everyone! (Hopefully more than one thing!)
10am-12pm: Dancing from the Core
The heart of fusion is the core–the core muscles, that is. We’ll learn the essential principles of muscular technique, including posture, alignment, one, two, and three dimensional isolations, and layered isolations. We’ll learn how to use visualization techniques to help us dance with great power and refinement. Perhaps most importantly, we’ll learn how to dance without pain.
1:30pm-3:30pm: Choreography 101
Learn the secrets of how to keep your audiences enthralled! Dance is not just a series of moves–it’s moving sculpture, it’s theater, it’s life itself. We’ll explore the choreographic process using exercises that a beginner could do and a professional would still benefit from. Topics covered will include musicality, stage dynamics, transitions, traveling patterns, and performance mentality.
4:00pm-5:00pm: History of Bellydance
A free lecture on the history of Bellydance.
