7PM Bellydance Bascis – Drop in & Pay What You Can
8:15PM Improvisational Tribal Style/American Tribal Style
Starting Thursday 3/23 we’ll be opening another Bellydance Basics class at 7PM with Eshe. It will be a Pay What You Can class. You can use your classcard if you have one or make a donation. The choice is yours. We want to make sure everyone in Hamilton that wants to dance is dancing! This is a drop in class meaning you can start any time (on or after 3/23). You don’t have to commit to coming to every week (although you are most welcome to). We will be talking about good posture, weight changes, traveling, isolations, shimmies, arm & hand movements, hip articulations, transitions – basically all of the building blocks of bellydance. Like our other basics classes, this offering will also be a bridge to choreography so if you wish to eventually transition you can do so with ease.
We’ll also be offering a new ITS/ATS class lead by Eshe at 8:15PM.
ITS – Improvisational Tribal Style is a freestyle dance format inspired by Carolena Nericcio’s American Tribal Style. Moving like a flock of birds or school of fish, we’ll use the body to communicate intent. ITS is like a language, after we learn a shared vocabulary we are able to have spontaneous conversation. With a turn of the head, hand gesture or foot placement the leader will cue a preset combination. This dance is great for being in the moment, creating art right out of thin air while listening to the music, as well as joyous and playful group work. The roots of this dance are Egyptian, featuring both folklore and traditional bellydance. The ITS we explore will also be peppered with bits of Indian and Spanish fusion as well as theatrical & modern dance stylizations.
We will also explore the founding San Francisco style ATS.
