So you want to be a tribal belly dancer? Whether its improvised and fusion style bellydance, come and learn the key foundation movements of tribal bellydance style. Drill the fundamental movements, learn technique and musculature of each component and dance/jam out combinations. Think regal posture, clean and controlled shoulder and hip shimmies, steps/travelling to get you moving, turns etc.

6.30-8pm – Tribal Fusion Conditioning, Drills and Combinations

Want to hone your musculature and refine and really embody the serpentine tribal fusion aesthetic? We’ll connect and develop the deep musculature of the body with conditioning drills and exercises, and breakdown, jam and experiment with bellydance isolations and combinations to find your inner slink!

Please note, all classes include a yoga warm up/cool down, so please bring your yoga mat!! No choreography! Just jam, drill, dance, get sweaty!

Spring Series Announced

DSC06103 (2).JPGWhat a fantastic winter term we’ve had! The improv troupe has performed twice and we performed our Term 3 classical Indian-inspired temple fusion choreography at the OMEDA spring event! Our new beginners and combos creative lab classes on Thursdays have also been very popular – so thanks for your support!

Because it’s the end of the year and I’d love to see our continuing beginners have the opportunity to participate in our end of term celebration, we will have a beginners choreography happening in place of our Tuesdays Foundations class this term. This class will weave together some of the key movements learnt throughout the year suitable for a beginners/entry level choreography. Think slow and strings! This will be performed at our end of term hafla/gathering – date TBC.

So people can continue with a double class, Tribal Style will move to the 7.15pm timeslot and intermediate choreography will move to 8.15pm timeslot. This series our intermediate choreography will be a folkloric fusion drum solo. We will put together our foundations and tribal style technique in a fast-paced and challenging piece. Think locks, pops and shimmies galore! This will be performed at our end of term hafla/gathering – date TBC.

Also, on request, conditioning will return Mondays in Mill Park. All other classes will remain the same.

Please follow this link to find class times, descriptions and fees.

Please note, if you pay for the term before the end of this term/September 29 you will receive a 5% discount.

Upcoming Brisbane Workshop

1614065_1189505204408143_702800115056877534_o.jpgJoin us for a yummy mid term winter Sunday afternoon tribal bellydance session.

Laura Entwined returns to hometown Brisbane will share some of her fave pre-dance yoga and body conditioning drills, plus explore and share combinations from the Entwined Bellydance tribal fusion and improvised tribal style format. Expect pops, locks and slinky transitions to inspire or add to your own dance or choreography.

The workshop will include:
– a strategic yoga strengthening and flexibility practice to warm and cool down the body before/after dance,
– body conditioning drills to connect with the deep musculature of the body necessary to successfully and cleanly articulate tribal fusion isolations
– drills and methods for layering up the body with foot pattern, bellydance isolation, arm pattern (and/or zils),
– combinations/sequences of tribal fusion movement vocabulary which play on musicality and timing which can be adapted to suit different choreography/music. Some combinations can also be utilised for an improvised tribal style format.
