Saturday, 5/11/2013(May 11 is World Bellydance Day, and we are coordinating around our local Shimmy Mob event! What better way to celebrate than by dancing with us?)Ins Outs & Omis (10am-12pm)
This workshop is designed to give you an intimate look at what makes Tribal Fusion so exciting. We will analyze proper posture and foundational techniques. We will break down those amazing tricks, pops, locks, and snakey bone defying moves that are distinctly tribal. We will also cover my fun smooshing combos as well as performance concepts! Beginners are welcome.Stackable Layers (2pm-4pm)
Every advanced dancer reaches for the goal of successfully layering multiple movements together. In this class learn techniques to "trick" the brain so that layering becomes smoother as well as techniques to execute layers with more ease.Slow & Slinky Combos(4pm-6pm)One stylistic element of Tribal Fusion is undoubtedly the snakelike serpentine movements that make us all drop our jaws. In this class learn the signature moves that we all love in an easy to follow broken down format that will have you slithering out the door. Sunday, 5/12/20131:30 pm to 5:30 pm (to allow plenty of time for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner time events for Mother's day.) This intensive would also make a great gift for that special belly dancing mother in your life!Industrial Elements (1:30pm-3:30pm)
Tribal Fusion borrows from underground club, trance, and hip hop. In this class students will learn how to utilize their technique in such a way that makes their movements look mechanical and otherworldly.Performance Concepts (3:30pm-5:30pm)
This class will focus on performance aspects including stage presence, Door vs. Window technique, storytelling, being the visual and how to effectively use your stage whether in a group or solo performance.
**PARTY!**There will be a hafla in Gainesville on the evening of 5/11/2013 (Saturday). More details to follow as the event is planned. Admission is included for workshop participants, and shimmy mob participants that wear (or show) their official shimmy mob T-shirt.
