K-Pop & Bellydance with Faith in Hamilton at Mahasti

faith fusion
FRESH FUSION CLASS with Faith Dance at Mahasti – The Bellydance Emporium.

Drop in on week 1 – Thursday Jan 18th.  Use your class card or pay a drop in fee.  If you’ve still got gas in the tank stay & play at 8:05 with Jackie Pullar while she leads a drilling class!

Instructor Faith loves bellydance, but her ultimate bias is K-Pop… and she invites you explore the fusion of these two distinct worlds into one energetic, whimsical, and accessible dance form! From undulations to aegyo, you’ll learn choreography that draws heavily on bellydance technique to blend seamlessly with a wide range of K-Pop stylings and expression. All levels welcome, but some bellydance experience is advantageous. Come prepared to do your best and have fun! Hwaiting!

FAITH
Faith began teaching and performing bellydance and Bollywood style dance in 2009 & 2010 respectively, and also enjoyed many years as a member of various Ontario-based bellydance troupes (Karma, Bella Luna, the Bellydonnas). Her teaching experience also spans areas such as fitness and chair dance. From 2011-2014, she founded and directed the Bollywood dance troupe NACHEGI.

Faith has had the privilege of studying with many instructors in both Bollywood style dance and bellydance, as well as attending workshops with renowned dancers and choreographers such as Divya Kumar, Jaya Vaswani, Raqia Hassan and Sadie Marquadt. She continues to study both dance forms through weekly classes and regular workshops, and is dedicated to presenting a culturally authentic dance experience in each class she teaches—while also making sure there are plenty of smiles and laughs along the way. In early 2017, she began fusing her deep love of K-Pop music with bellydance, and seeks to present style this to her fusion students with her signature whimsical flavor.
