Schedule and Workshop Descriptions:
10am - 11am | Gina Bruno | Classic Belly Dance
Gina Bruno will take you through classic belly dance movements and patterns from the 1960s era of belly dance. Let's go back to basics of tribal style.
11am - 12pm | Aimee Krasovich | Spin, Turn, and Twirl
Can't quite feel stable in that turn… always falling or spinning off in the wrong direction?? Let's talk technique. I’ll walk you through, step by step, the layers needed to gain control of your turns. We’ll focus on a warm-up to prep the body, how to spot with some tricks of the trade, work some basic pirouettes, touch turns, etc. Then we’ll put our spins into action in short phrases. You’ll walk away with the tools you need to continue growing and improving your turns.
12pm - 1pm | Rose Harden | The Shimmy Shakedown
So many shimmies, so little time. We will explore different shimmy stylizations and approaches to this belly dance staple, from fast 3/4s to downtempo 4/4 and lots in between. No matter what style of belly dance you focus on or what your experience level is, you will walk away from this workshop with a new anatomical understanding and tools for accessing freedom and increased range of movement in your body for big, juicy shimmies!
1pm - 1:45 | Lunch
1:45pm - 2:45pm | Kami Liddle | Graceful Flow
The focus of this workshop is moving with smooth, strong, and continuous flow by focusing on core strength, balance, breath, and stability. Several movement phrases incorporating both intricate isolations and expansive movement in the limbs will be introduced and students will be given tools to adapt or change the movement to suit their body, style, or aesthetic.
2:45pm - 3:45pm | Julie Rea | Syncopated Synopsis
What’s music got to do with it? In this workshop we’ll focus on rhythm and how music influences your dance phrases and movement choices. We’ll touch on musical phrasing, instrumentation, syncopation, and fold this knowledge into playful combos with an emphasis on musicality.
3:45pm - 4:45pm | Kae Montgomery | Leg Flexibility for Dancers
Legs can be one of the most expressive parts of your dancing body. Gain strength, stamina, and flexibility to expand athletic possibilities and translate your greatest ideas into physical expression! Bring a yoga mat, yoga blocks and strap (if you have them), and knee pads!
