Let’s explore breath & full body movements. We will begin with dynamic stretching followed by focused dance conditioning sequences to preparing your body and focus the mind. Drills w/ a heavy focus on lines, turns, spins, & extensions will help inspire a more dynamic range of expression in your dance. Come with the intention to refine your movement quality and take your dance to the next level.

Synthesis 3-5PM
Applying the techniques from the previous class, you will learn a few fun, yet challenging combinations; fusing soft flowing contemporary technique with good ole’ tribal fusion pop n locking! Fun for the brain and the body! In closing, we will also be exploring group/partner work. (Bring knee pads if you feel you need them as we will be doing some floor work!)

Workshops for Ngen by Angela Josephine

Join Angela in a workshop dedicated to the art of melting. Learn some original ooey gooey combos that play with the dynamics of rigid and soft, stiff and loose, solid and slack. We will explore how we can use these contrasting movements to make our dances both more dynamic and expressive. I mean, what’s a lock if you can’t melt like a boss?

Suitable for all styles and levels of Bellydancers. 6 months experience recommended.
