Super Sundays with Audra
Multi-level workshops to brighten your Sunday, and challenge mind and body. Some belly dance experience required, no previous experience with Dark Side technique required
Special Saturday, December 9, 2017
A multi-level day of technique, and combinations designed to take dancers from start to finish.
We’ll work the basics of technique, develop those building blocks into more sophisticated, and complex technical pieces, then use that in original combinations.
Then we’ll work on developing those into expressive dance nuggets, as we connect our minds and hearts, to the music.
Technique and Combinations (11 am to 1 pm)
Developing Dance Nuggets (1:30-3:30 pm)
Open to all levels and styles – not suitable to absolute beginners
Sunday, December 10, 2017 (I am also teaching these workshops in Hamilton at Mahasti in October, but the content will be different for those wishing to attend both)
From the Start: how music inspires movement (11am to 1 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.
Open to all levels and styles – no previous musical training is required, seriously.
Beyond Drilling: bringing life to technique (1:30-3:30 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 their creative process and performance.
Open to all levels and styles
Single workshop $45
Single day $80
Special Saturday and Super Sunday $160
