You may remember her from Sahnobar Dance Ensemble at the Hoggetowne Medieval Faire here in Gainesville just recently, but did you know that she's also co-founder of Hip Expressions Belly Dance Studio serving the Tampa Bay area and beyond! With a wide range of expertise, she's kindly joining us here in Gainesville in March - don't miss the chance to study with her!
Tantalizing Tahitian Treat
10am - 12pm, $35 advance, $40 at the door
In this workshop you will learn the magic of moving your hips fast and saucy! The versatility that Tahitian dance has to offer with its variety of tempos to play with will challenge the most seasoned dancer while laying a great foundation for those just starting out.
This workshop is perfect for the dancer who wants to add a greater level of control and body vocabulary to their bag of tricks. Tahitian dance has a very graceful, powerful and playful quality to it that will bring out the joy you have for dance. Be ready to sweat and feel some new muscles as we take a tour of the islands playing with traditional movements and combos. Bring a pareau (sarong) and a towel; let’s make those skirts fly!!!
Move Like an Egyptian: Then and Now
1:30pm-3:30pm, $35 early bird, $40 at the door
This workshop is ideal for the dancer who wants to add some spice to their dance. Whether your focus is Cabaret or Tribal styles, the foundations of belly dance are the same. Be ready to move, isolate and explode onto the stage like an Egyptian.
We'll be going through a series of combos to different types of music, giving you a wide variety of styles to play with, while also working on technique:
#1: Smooth and Flowing (Classical Egyptian)
#2: Explode onto the Stage (Modern Egyptian)
#4: Folkloric Stylings
#5: Drum Solo
There is a package discount for attending both workshops! ($60 in advance, $75 at the door)
And if that isn't enough dancing for you, please join us that evening at 7:30 for our monthly drum circle and hafla!
