Online workshop series

Join me for a series of online pre-recorded workshops aimed at developing your technique and movement vocabulary, as well as a fabulous choreography to tie it all together and help your learning and memorising combinations and steps. Each workshop can be accessed in sections online so you can learn when and where it suits you. And you can of course return to the workshop as many times as you like. All workshops are suitable for improver to advanced level dancers.

Topics

Powerful Oriental: Using some of the best of Egyptian technique and adding in innovative and highly useful combinations, we will learn a powerful Oriental choreography that’s also elegant, cheeky and above all show stopping. We’ll work on drills, discover modern steps and their origin and not least how to string a choreography together that never stops to surprise the audience, yet won’t overcrowd your brain with too much detail.

Jazz Fusion: Want to jazz up your belly dance? Or learn more about jazz steps, combinations and how they transition effortlessly into almost any kind of dance? In this workshop we’ll work on lost of jazz technique, but adapted to a belly dancer [no floor work, fewer turns and lower leg lifts and kicks!]. There is a lot of feet in this workshop, but along with fabulous arm movements and stepping patterns that are highly versatile, this session will leave you with lots of take aways for your own choreographies, whether they are oriental or more fusion inspired. Please note, there will be quite a few turns and leg lifts, but we will start basic and then layer upon that so you can find a level that is right for you.

Theatrical Performance Fusion: If you like making an impact and creating powerful storytelling when you perform then this workshop is for you. We will dive in to technique from many different dance styles including Bellydance, Latin, Bollywood,  Jazz, Flamenco as well as Street Dance and Hip Hop to create combinations as versatile as their origins. We will tie it all together in a powerful performance with slow snaky moves and fast turns. Expects everything from barrel turns and flamenco styling to body popping and sharp hip combinations.
