A TASTE OF L.A. FUNDRAISER FOR LOS ANGELES HOMELESS YOUTH

We will be working with the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center to fundraise for Youth Services.  Their goal is to house and feed homeless gay, bisexual, transgender and lesbian youth under the age of 25 who are currently living in Los Angeles. 

 

Proceeds from our event will be going toward the Youth Center, which offers counseling, food, clothing, shower, transitional programs and other services to help the LGBT youth community.  We will also be holding a clothing drive and plan to donate all items collected to the same charity.

 

See a great show and help make a difference!

ATS® Drills & Thrills

$25 pre-sale/$35 at-the-door

All levels welcome!  Good for ATS dancers as well as those looking to fuse some Tribal into their repertoire.

 ________________________________________________________________

AUBRE HILL

12:30PM - 2:30PM
Historical Roots of Tribal and Bellydance Fusion Lecture

$25 pre-sale/$35 at-the-door

Understanding the history to our art is invaluable knowledge for any dancer or enthusiast.

Within this 2 hour lecture, Aubre will walk through hundreds of years of history with a specific focus on the past few decades that brought us Tribal Fusion and Bellydance Fusion.

Handouts will be available.  Notebook for notes is highly recommended.

 ________________________________________________________________


Just as last year, there will be two free mini-workshops to introduce you and give you another taste of L.A.'s amazing teachers!  These workshops will be held in the 30-minute time between Jen and Aubre's classes.  Sign up today to take advantage of a free learning opportunity from two of L.A.'s up and coming teachers!


This years' teachers and workshops will be:


 

ROXY ROXSTAR


 

12:00PM - 12:15PM
Dancing to Dubstep, Roxstar Style

FREE

Love it or hate it (but if you're taking this class, I HOPE you love it!), dubstep has recently started to become a popular trend in the fusion bellydance world. For some reason, this highly produced style of music, with its synthesized melodies, high-speed rhythm and a bass beat to blow your ears off, is highly addictive to many performers. Roxy Roxstar is one such soul that has succumbed to dubstep addiction.  We hope it isn't fatal.


Roxy has been performing to dubstep frequently over the past two years, and though her style is by no means formulaic, she has a few choice techniques that often wind up worming their way into her movement.


In this workshop, she will walk you through her tips and techniques for giving a powerful performance to dubstep music. We will focus on adjoining certain movements to certain sounds. We will work on a short combo that you can slip into your next solo!


 

 

IRINAXARA


 

12:15PM - 12:30PM
Romany Punk Fusion and Fantasy

FREE

 

This workshop explores the relationships between primarily Eastern European Romany movement and “Gypsy Punk” music, a genre famously pioneered by the band Gogol Bordello.

IrinaXara will draw focus to the characterization inherent in Romany dance interpretation and matters of stereotyping and gender(ed) portrayal. The workshop will center dually on building characterization and interpretation, as well as study of ethnic movement and flavor and will also help students bring their own signature style to the genre.

With discussion of ethnic movement there will be a short discussion of genre musical traits and musicality. Though not the main focus of the workshop, the cultural influence of Steampunk fantasy may also be discussed.

Beginners and above.
