Arms and Hands 11-1PM
Join Audra for a workshop designed to help you develop beautiful, fluid arms and hands.

We’ll begin with exercises for finding and mobilizing the upper back and shoulder blades, then move into elbows, wrists and fingers.

Then, with Dark Side style, Audra will begin to add details to create further depth of movement, as well as introduce emotive qualities to these movements, as we bring them into short combinations.

No previous Dark Side experience is required, though some belly dance experience is suggested. Suitable for all levels.

Technique Spotlight 1:30-3:30 -SOLD OUT!
This workshop will focus on deepening your understanding and execution of fundamental hip, chest and abdominal movements as we deconstruct the basics in this fun, sweaty workshop!

We’ll refine your technique and enhance your muscular control in stationary and moving drills, adding complexity and layers as we go. We’ll see how much we can pile on, where and how it falls apart, and talk about how we can work to be able to do it all.

No previous Dark Side experience is required, though some belly dance experience is suggested, not for absolute beginners. Suitable for all levels.

1 workshop $45 ($39.82 + tax)

Upcoming Bellydance Workshops

springworkshops

We are so excited to bring to you some of the brightest stars in the Canadian bellydance scene.  Taking workshops with other instructors is a great way to expand your dance vocabulary, come at your practice from a new angle, learn new ways of creating & being creative as well as meeting other dancers.

Part of our mission at Mahasti is also to support those within our community.

Melissa Gamal is an award-winning dance artist based out of Toronto as well as 1/3 of the renowned dance company Ya Amar.  She’ll be bringing us her signature flawless Egyptian Bellydance on Sat 3/11 and then staying in town to dance at Harem that night in The Casbah.

Sun 3/26 we are having a Fusion Intensive.  Fusion as the name implies is dance mixology, infusing bellydance with other movement practices.  Jackie Pullar from Wild Orchid Bellydance in Hamilton, Zahira from Dragonfly Bellydance in Toronto & Ishra of Invoketress in Guelph will be joining forces to bring you 3 different, playful offerings.

Sat 4/8 will have Audra of The Dark Side Studio & Lavish in Toronto visiting us.  She is a bellydance pioneer.  After her workshops she’ll be dancing that night at Harem in The Casbah.

More details coming soon.
