Dark Side Technique
Join Audra as we take a look at basic belly dance technique, and playfully turn it on its head, Dark Side style.

Universal belly dance movements and isolations will be examined and drilled as we work to deconstruct and separate the pieces. With this deconstruction, you’ll gain a deeper understanding and begin the path to moving with unrivalled versatility.

Arms, undulations and feet will be addressed, and if time permits we will visit the hip figure 8 family and hip circles.

Please bring water, and a sense of humor. Laughing and sweating may occur.

This workshop is open to all styles and levels of dancers with some previous experience with belly dance. Not recommended for absolute beginners.
No previous experience with Dark Side technique is required.

Dark Side Choreography
Come and learn an original choreography by Audra that embodies belly dance and beyond.

Performed to a beautiful electronic song, you’ll learn the basic movements phrases, and then integrate concepts such as weight, breath, and suspension as we bring them to life.

This workshop is open to all styles and levels of dancers with some previous experience with belly dance. Not recommended for absolute beginners.

Taking the Dark Side Technique workshop is highly recommended, but not required.
