After an incredible 2018 culminating in our stunning End of Year Showcase Folklore to Faery Dust we are super excited to return to the studio in 2019! People described the show as “faultless”, “spectacular”, “superb from start to finish”!
Tribal, Fusion and Bellydance Training
Summer School and Term 1 2019
Summer School Intensives
15, 16, 22 and 23 January
8-10pm Tuesdays and 7.30-9.30pm Wednesdays
Tuesday 15 January
We breakdown and drill finger cymbal patterns and combinations and layer with bellydance movements and combinations. This will give you a great introduction to using finger cymbals, hone your technique, expand your repertoire, and give you a good grounding in folkloric style which can be utilised in American Tribal Style or traditional bellydance formats.
Wednesday 16 January
This class will provide different methods and technique for improvisation and how we improvise in the Entwined Bellydance format. We will provide an introduction to American Tribal Style Bellydance and how classic formations and troupe format movements can be used for group or solo improvisation. A good brush up for anyone who has previously done group improvisation, regulars looking to expand on their capacity or complete beginners wanting to learn a few basics.
Tuesday 22 January
Get Your Glitch On Part 1
Summer festival season is upon us! We’ll drill your fave bellydance moves but then add some unexpected fun tribal fusion style slinks, pops and locks to get your moving like a babe on the dancefloor. We’ll play with some combinations to some of my favourite current glitch tracks, and do some conditioning drills to hone the deep musculature of the body so you can access that deep serpentine core.
Wednesday 23 January
Get Your Glitch On Part 2 (Can’t get enough edition)
Part 2, cause 1 shot is not enough! We’ll continue to play with some slinky poppy combinations to some of my favourite current glitch tracks, and do some conditioning drills to hone the deep musculature of the body so you can access that deep inner pool of yumm!
