Yahoo Edmonton! I’m thrilled to be coming back for a day of workshops and a run at The Dark Side Dance Program’s Stage 2: Lavender.
Super Sunday in Edmonton!
Open workshops – Sunday, February 25, 2018 at Bedouin Beats, Edmonton Alberta
Open to all levels and styles of belly dancer. Not recommended for absolute beginners
Dark Side Drill Session (10 am to noon)
Join Audra for a drill session with a triple focus.
First we’ll drill stationary fundamentals to refine and clean up, as we rinse, lather and repeat.
Then we’ll bump the speed up a notch, break out some fancy feet, and take it to the next level.
And finally, we’ll work with layering movements together, to see what works, what doesn’t and figure out why, so we can work on making that possible too.
Beyond Drilling: bringing life to technique (1 to 3 pm)
In the life of any dancer, the desire to develop and refine technique is a constant quest, but dance is so much more than technique!
We’ll explore energy, work with weight and play with time as we connect with our bodies, and consider the missing link between drilling and successful performance.
Inspired by this summer’s sold out Take It Back Intensive, this workshop is part experiment and part investigation, and will provide dancers with new ideas and approaches to both the creative process and performance.
From the Start: how music inspires movement (3 to 5 pm)
Dance creation and performance is often inspired and motivated by the music we move to.
In this workshop, we’ll take an in depth look at several pieces music to reveal their inner workings as we broaden our knowledge of, and connection to, the music.
Discussion and examples of how these sounds and elements can affect and shape our movement choices will follow as we work on creating short dance phrases.
Please note: there will be the option of some movement in this workshop, but it is primarily lecture style.
No previous musical training is required, seriously.
