Bellydance Workshops with Heather Marie at Mahasti in Hamilton, Canada

heather marie

Sun 11/18 workshops with Heather Marie
Expand and Contract 12-2
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.

Shimmy Clinic at Mahasti in Hamilton

shimmy

All week learn how to shimmy with Eshe! We even have a bonus pay what you can class this Tuesday 5-6:30 (or use 1 groupon class or 1 class on your class card)

Don’t forget Thursday 7PM we have a FREE bellydance basics class with Faith! No strings, just come & dance on us!

Little Ones Policy

Was inspired by this post that reflected so many of my own values so I Mahasti-fied it a bit.
 
1) All exclusively breastfeeding babies are welcome in class as often as is necessary. Tuesday and Thursday 10AM classes are a great option if you don’t have daytime child care but want to shimmy! I bring my own little one to class during those hours so this class is discounted to $5 cash drop in fee.
 
2) For older children and babies, I understand that unexpected interruptions in childcare happen. While this is not meant to be a long-term childcare solution, you may occasionally bring a child to the studio to cover gaps in care. Your class cards are also valid for 3 months so if you prefer to stay home you still have time to make up the class later in the session. We currently offer at least 6 drop in classes a week (often more) so you have a minimum of 72 chances to use your class card.
 
3) I ask that all students work with me to create a welcoming atmosphere that is respectful of all forms of diversity, including diversity in parenting status.
 
4) If your child needs special attention during class and is disrupting learning for other dancers, please step away into the next room until their need has been met.
 
5) Let me know how I can support you in another way if you have any ideas!
