Audra Simmons at Mahasti – Sat 10/21

Audra Simmons, bellydance pioneer & general boss is taking over Mahasti – The Bellydance Emporium on Sat October 21, 2017.

Workshops will be followed by a performance at Harem – Bellydance Show in Hamilton.

11-1PM From the Start
1:15-3:15PM Beyond Drilling

$45 for 1 workshop
$75 for both

From the Start: how music inspires movement

Dance creation and performance is often inspired and motivated by the music we move to.

In this workshop, we’ll take an in depth look at several pieces music to reveal their inner workings as we broaden our knowledge of, and connection to, the music.

Discussion and examples of how these sounds and elements can affect and shape our movement choices will follow as we work on creating short dance phrases.

Please note: there will be the option of some movement in this workshop, but it is primarily lecture style.
Open to all levels and styles – no previous musical training is required, seriously.

Beyond Drilling: bringing life to technique

In the life of any dancer, the desire to develop and refine technique is a constant quest, but dance is so much more than technique!

We’ll explore energy, work with weight and play with time as we connect with our bodies, and consider the missing link between drilling and successful performance.

Inspired by this summer’s sold out Take It Back Intensive, this workshop is part experiment and part investigation, and will provide dancers with new ideas and approaches to both the creative process and performance.

Open to all levels and styles
