Beginner Bellydance workshop: Run every 2 months – recommencing in mid 2021
Come and boogie to some juicy music! A 2 hr adventure through traditional middle eastern dance and some modern variations (tribal fusion). We will learn some basic techniques and put it together in a short choreography. Wear leggings or harems, a fitted top (singlet or crop top). No dance experience necessary. It’s a chance to enjoy and celebrate so wear fun colours, bring a hip scarf or belt if you have one (I have a few spares).
$20/$25 Numbers are limited so bookings are essential
Introduces the basics of postures, pose and movements common to all bellydance and those unique to tribal and tribal fusion and dark fusion. In beyond beginners, we progress to basic travelling moves and specific Black Moon Bellydance movement vocabulary. Emphasis is given to safety and establishing the strong core and posture which is the hallmark of this style. No previous dance experience is required. As a rule of thumb, most people who are completely new to dance do 2 or 3 terms of beginners to be ready to progress. Once people are comfortable and competent with the Black Moon Improvised Tribal movements and foundation technique, they can progress to intermediate classes. Those who have a lot of previous experience in other dance genres, or returning from a break from bellydance often find one term is sufficient or may be ready for beyond beginners/ intermediate classes straight off.
INTERMEDIATE TRIBAL BELLYDANCE, DARK (GOTHIC) FUSION & MODERN FUSION
This builds more complex combinations of movements, both choreographed and improvised. Technique covered includes the fundamental movement vocabulary of Fat Chance Bellydance and Global Caravan Bellydance styles, as well as the unique Black Moon movement vocabulary, and use of props. Students need at least 2 terms of introductory level classes (or equivalent) to be able to join these classes.
