Let’s Get in Formation * Mini intensive with performance opportunity!
How about we just have fun? Learn and refine a short and super fun choreography in Ebony’s signature fusion style - and then, let’s perform it on the big (or small) stage. This is going to be everyyyything! Designed for those with at least low-intermediate belly
dance experience (modifications always offered).
Layer Cake: Advanced Fusion Layering and Choreography
Get ready to multitask! We'll start by drilling basic undulations, accents, and shimmies with an emphasis on isolating these movements. Then, we'll embellish those basics by layering them one piece at a time. Kick it up a notch with traveling steps to create clean
layers along with strong and controlled movement. Learn powerful, yet graceful combinations that can be used in choreography or improvisation. Dance shoes recommended, but not required.
Urban Fusion Technique
Explore a fun and unique spin on tribal fusion belly dance. Learn combinations which are influenced by urban styles found in hip hop, retro funk styles such as popping, and the timeless influence of raqs sharqi. Build coordination, work on isolating movements, and expand your dance style with unusual undulations. This workshop will be high energy, prepare to sweat and have fun. Dance shoes recommended, but not required.
Tango Fusion Choreography
Set to a music composition with traditional La Cumparsita phrasing, intermingled with a bit of deeeelicious blues (Liz's favorite!). We will work with smooth, curving combinations punctuated with crisp accents, traveling and footwork, and a good dose of sensual sass. This workshop will challenge you to focus not only on technique but also on your stage presence.
The Talking Drum: An Introduction to Tradional West African Dance
This class will give an introduction to the stories and rhythms of West Africa. All of the tradional dances of West Africa tell a story of a tribe, kings, and queens or are used to celebrate pivotal events in life. In this class we will learn the stories behind the dance and how we tell these stories through our movement.
