2017 Workshop Description:



Master Class: Theatrical Egyptian oriental dance routine.
In this class Dr. Mo will bring the dramatic theatrical aspect into the oriental dance, teaching students to represent this dance with passion, drama, and feelings.

Lecture: History and Origin of Oriental dance. Learn the history and origin of this beautiful art form as Dr. Mo shows and explain the dance with slide shows, pictures, and history presentations. Students will have the opportunity to ask questions and learn with the legend of Oriental Dance.

Lively Saidi Choreography - (Cane Required for this class) Learn a beautiful and fun choreography with the cane as Dr. Mo explains technique and teaches the essence of this traditional and powerful dance.


Live Drum Solo Choreography: There is nothing so exhilarating as dancing to a live drummer. While you can plan and choreograph with a recorded drum solo, nothing can substitute the high-impact energy of a live drum solo choreography. Join Nathalie as she teaches one of the most powerful live drum solos you ever learned, together with International Drummer Artem Uzunov from Russia.


Master Class: Technique, Feelings & Expressions on Stage- Yet, without a character from which to draw inspiration, how exactly are you supposed to be “more expressive”? In its simplest of breakdowns, I think of performance as incorporating: Charisma, Stage Presence & Artistic sensitivity. Join Marta in this master class as she teaches how to obtain all of this on the stage.

Tarab Dance Choreography: "Tarab is a concept of enchantment”. It's usually associated with vocal music, although instrumental music can produce the same effect, in which the listener is completely enveloped in the sound and the meaning in a broad experiential sense, and is just completely carried away by the performance. Join Marta as she teaches this beautiful choreography.

Egyptian Baladi: Learn this traditional and beautiful dance as Marta takes you through one of the most common Rhythms of Egyptian dance. Students will learn a beautiful routine.


CLASSES TBA


Modern Baladi: In this unique workshop, you will learn the foundations of Modern Baladi style and how to interpret this rich, playful and sensual dance.

Lyrical Choreography: Lyrical Dance is a mix of classical ballet technique, the fluidity of jazz steps and the contemporary vision of expressing yourself. It is dynamic and very elegant at the same time. It requires a lot of energy and the technique involves the whole body. The choreography is made on different tempos, from the slow and elegant to the dynamic and virtuous.


Live Drum Solo Choreography: There is nothing so exhilarating as dancing to a live drummer. While you can plan and choreograph with a recorded drum solo, nothing can substitute the high-impact energy of a live drum solo choreography. Join Artem Uzunov as he teaches with superstar Nathalie, one of the most powerful live drum solos you ever learned! Brand NEW song!!!


Technique Tune Up: Join Portia for an action packed, high energy Technique Tuneup class with focus on modern Belly Dance moves and combos a la "Belly Motions Miami" style! You'll leave with new ideas and an experience you won't forget! Drills, drills, drills and thrills!


World Fusion Belly Dance:
(Essence of Belly Dance, Flamenco, Latin, Samba, Bollywood, Cabaret and Hip-hop)
Students will learn choreography and improvisational movement emphasizing on technique essential to belly dancing. The isolation taught in this class releases nuances of movement that empower your presence and appeal. An important factor in belly dancing is the drum solo that orchestrates the rhythm in the movements learned in class. Including, isolations, across the floor, floor work, and shimmy to name a few. You will explore a fusion that creates confidence as it allows your body to express itself in a release energy.
Samantha Diaz World Fusion is an alignment we feel within and between our selves that is expressed in binding all worldly rhythms as one.


Menjanse Choreography: Mejanse is a type of Middle Eastern musical form. In Cairo, the top dancers have them composed specifically to showcase their dance style(s). Typically the Mejanse is the opening number, but has many changes of rhythm and melody, allowing the dancer to show her favorite styles of dance. Join Annemarie for this new choreography.


The WOW Factor for Dancers: Why do some dancers seem to capture their audience and own the stage over other dancers with the same dance ability? How can you get your audience to pay more attention to your performance regardless of the venue? Some say either you have it or don't. But I say this is a skill that can be mastered. Yes, you can "wow" your audience. Whether it be on stage,restaurants or at a special event like a wedding,birthday or even dancing for family,friends,children,the elderly or your partner! Join Esma as she explains how to WOW your audience!
