Sunday October 27, 2019 - Tempest & Nathanial Johnstone 

Musicality & ‘Motion

Essentially, the dancer is the music made manifest. When a dancer’s movements truly evoke visually for the audience the sound and feel of the music, something amazing has been achieved. 

In this workshop we will open our ears in order to see the music, identify it, translate it to our bodies, and apply emotional content effectively.  We will make the connection beyond emoting and movement technique, where the expression is genuine and real for the audience. 

For all styles of bellydancers.

Workshop Cost:  $30.00 Prepay  /  $40.00 at the door

Sunday December 29, 2019 - Tava Naiyin

Intentional Transitions:
Learning to Love the Space Between the Moves


Dance is essentially a body conversation between release and resist.

In this workshop, Tava will help participants learn to seamlessly join movements by releasing technique and exploring such concepts as gravity resistance, sinking into the floor, subtle weight shifts and "hidden preparations" that occur before starting a new movement. Each of these concepts will be explored to a variety of tempos.

Workshop Cost:

$30.00 Prepay

$40.00 at the door
