Event Details

Yes there is still space in all the workshops!  If you were trying to register here on eventbrite and were confused when asked to select the day and only Sunday was available it is because I had made a mistake when setting up the eventbrite page and unfortunately once I had it live I couldn't edit that part.  All the classes are still open, you can go ahead and register, just select Sunday & you're good to go!  Sorry for the confusion.

Weekend Intensive Schedule & workshop descriptions:

Friday Feb. 3rd,  2:00-5pm:

The Lovely Bones: Elegant posture and the biomechanics of belly dance. (3 hours)

The 'bones' of fusion belly dance technique are posture, simple shapes, foot patterns and arm patterns. This workshop will strengthen those bones with a focus on clean articulation and proud carriage. We'll learn phrases built from these fundamentals to experience the power of posture, deepen your understanding of simple shapes, and drill the transitions between those shapes.

This class is designed for all levels, from the experienced beginner to the professional, as the fundamentals are to clean technique as oxygen is to breathing.

Please bring finger cymbals, snacks, a water bottle, a yoga mat, and a small towel.


Saturday Feb. 4th, 3:30-6:30pm:

Chop Chop! Screaming Combos and Double Time Drills. (3 hours)

In this 3 hour class, we'll play with a few up-tempo combinations that Rachel's worked up in the last few months. The emphasis will be on precision, timing, and keeping posture while pushing beyond your perceived limits in a supportive and fun environment. Don't worry, only one year of belly dance experience required, but it should be a challenge for any level. All new material for your enjoyment.

Please bring finger cymbals, snacks, a water bottle, a yoga mat, and a small towel.


Martha Graham Dance Company at the Hawaii Theater, doors open @ 7:30pm

As an added activity we are planning an outing to see the Martha Graham Dance Company’s performance at the historical Hawaii Theater.  After class on Friday we will be grabbing a quick bite to eat, most likely in Chinatown and heading to the show.  I will be purchasing tickets in bulk so we can receive the group rate, if you are interested in joining us, please let me know.  Tickets are $50 with the group discount.


The Martha Graham Dance Company has been a leader in the development of contemporary dance since its founding in 1926. Informed by the expansive vision of pioneering choreographer Martha Graham, the Company brings to life a timeless and uniquely American style of dance that has influenced generations of artists and continues to captivate audiences. Graham and her Company have expanded contemporary dance’s vocabulary of movement and forever altered the scope of the art form by rooting works in contemporary social, political, psychological, and sexual contexts, deepening their impact and resonance.

Sunday Feb. 5th, 11-4pm:

The Stacking Method™: How to create your own movements for improvisation, choreography or technique. (5 hours)

The Stacking Method™ is a way to interlock the simple elements of belly dance to create complex movements. It was developed for the 8 Elements™ training to provide dancers with the ability to create an infinite number of movement combinations.

Bring a sense of adventure and playfulness, as things start simply and build very quickly. A fun, mind-bending, high energy, and very challenging class for most participants.  All levels are welcome, from the experienced beginner to the seasoned professional.

For all classes please bring finger cymbals, snacks, a water bottle, a yoga mat, and a small towel.

Rachel Brice bio:

Rachel Brice first fell in love with Belly Dance after watching the famous Hahbi'Ru at the Northern California Renaissance Faire in 1988 and began taking classes right away. In 1999, she decided to study full time, and relocated for the University program in Dance Ethnology at San Francisco State University. In 2003 she was discovered by rock mogul Miles Copeland and began touring internationally with his company, Bellydance Superstars. Also in 2003 she founded The Indigo Belly Dance Company. In 2007 - 2010 The Indigo toured with its first full-length show, Le Serpent Rouge. When possible, Rachel studies Belly Dance with her teachers Carolena Nericcio, creator of American Tribal Style, and Yoga with Gary Kraftsow. When not teaching on the road, she lives in Portland Oregon where she opened a studio, Datura, while dreaming of a dog and a garden.
