Entwined Bellydance
Term 1 – Summer Series 2020
Monday 3rd February – Wednesday 25th March – 8weeks

Tribal, fusion, bellydance, conditioning and yoga training in Brunswick.

— MONDAYS —
7pm – Conditioning
Hone your body in this yogalates style conditioning class to build strength, flexibility and
endurance in the body. This class draws on yoga, pilates, ballet barre and
bellydance training techniques.

7.30pm – Bellydance Drills & Foundations
Learn and drill the foundation movements of bellydance. Bellydance, or Danse du Vent as called by the French at the turn of the 20th century, is typified by movements of the
torso and belly. You will learn the key muscular isolations incorporating hips,
belly, shoulders and arms, and how to layer these over basic floor patterns.
Entwined has spent many years defining and refining the key movements, arm
patterns and floor work of bellydance, and this class is your one stop shop.

8.30pm – Choreography/Combinations
This class will weave together floor patterns, bellydance isolations and arm movements in a
modern, innovative twist on traditional bellydance movements, incorporating
tribal fusion, tribal style bellydance, and other dance styles, synonymous with
the Entwined approach. We will also be developing work for our upcoming show
Mystic Caravan on May 17.

8pm – Yoga Vinyasa
Although this class isn’t specifically for dancers, yoga asana and breathwork has been a key
conditioning and strengthening technique used in the Entwined format, as well
as a tool for reversing back pain and poor posture. This class will open the
mind, body and soul to receive the sacred transmission of dance.

Monday 6 January: 7-8.30pm – Drill Me, Thrill Me 

Join in this epic flow drill class covering the key isolations of bellydance in a condensed, fast-paced invigorating format. Rather than focusing on breakdown technique, this class will focus on repetition, strength training, fitness and endurance. The aim is to really embed the moves for new or beginning dancers or re-establish the moves for intermediate or advanced dancers after the festive break, through repetition into the muscle memory and neuron pathways.

Tuesday 7 January: 8-9.30pm – Strong Yoga Flow with Entwined

This class will be designed with bellydancers in mind, and reinvigorate and realign the body, mind and soul for dance after the festive break. We will focus on strengthening, balance and creating flexibility in key areas of the body involved in bellydance, such as the legs, shoulders and torso.

Wednesday 8 January: 7.30-8.30pm – Let’s Flow, Let’s Glide

Tribal fusion dancers love their feminine flow and serpentine slink, and this class will focus on some of the key tribal fusion combinations which flow from one part of the body to the other. This class focuses on drills and repetition to embed the movements in the body. We’ll have you connecting with your inner mermaid, sea goddess or leafy sea dragon.

Monday 13 January:  7-8.30pm – Welcome to Shimmy Town

We breakdown the key shimmies used in bellydance, tribal and fusion bellydance, and drill the night away. This class focuses on repetition, endurance and fitness, and building your repertoire of shimmies. We go well beyond the classic Egyptian leg shimmy and classic tribal ghawazi, and ride the wave of those endorphins to shimmy town!

Tuesday 14 January: 8-9.30pm – Lock & Flow

Building on Let’s Flow, Let’s Glide or available as a stand alone offering, this workshop combines the lock and serpentine of bellydance into classic urban industrial contemporary movement for the modern dancer. We divinely blend the masculine and the feminine in your body y’all.

Wednesday 15 January: 7.30-8.30pm – Sass with Dat?

This class will focus on building performance technique and facial expression. We aim to help you find your inner sass through character and choreographic concepts, tools and combinations. Why just pout or smile, let’s explore the spectrum of our other emotions and archetypes classic to our dance form to bring out your inner performer.

Monday 20 January: 7-8.30pm – Follow da Dubmaster / Puppetmaster

This class will be an organic improvisational tribal fusion dance workshop. Be the leader or follow the pack, this workshop will focus on letting go of control, using your tools and repetoire, building camaradie and tribe, playing with formations and working in a group. Leave your ego at the door and embrace the divine chaos.

Tuesday 21 January: 8-9.30pm – Gentle Yoga Flow with Entwined

This class will be designed with busy dancers and performers in mind, and will nourish and balance the body, mind and soul for the upcoming period. We will focus on lengthening, deepening and opening the key body areas which get tight in bellydance, such as legs, shoulders and hip flexors.
