Find Your Strength

What if the ability to unlock your greatest strengths already lies inside of you? What could happen if we were more intentional and recognized the power we have to improve our own expertise? Whether you’re an individual looking to advance your own talents or a leader wanting to empower your group to perform better, your efforts start with identifying your own strengths as a belly dancer. Explore muscle groups and expand your dance vocabulary from the ground up. Get started by learning your unique set of physical talents and how to use them to maximize your potential. Our workshop will include conditioning exercises targeted at strengthening the primary muscles used in belly dance. We’ll also share isolation drills to build stamina and control and slowly add in layers of other movements to create short combinations for your own self-practice. The aim is to give you the tools you need to be able to be strong within your own style. Make the most out of your dance repertoire by activating the strengths you already have!


Choose Your Own Adventure

Using movement explored in the Find Your Strengths workshop, learn an easy choreography that you can customize to suit your artistic style. You’re the choreographer and you make choices that showcase your best qualities. Choose from several possible combinations and adapt this number in creative yet simple ways. Group choreography concepts that are easily modified for soloists and troupes looking for innovative variations of basic technique. Present your best and expand your choreography, your body & mind! Karma's Artistic Director, Leilah, will lead instruction with guidance from Karma belly dancers for this truly collaborative experience.

We’ll put items from the morning workshop all together in a choreography for a collective group of dancers* to join together for a one-time performance. Attendees of the afternoon's workshops will be invited to create this group number using the choreography as the Grand Finale of the Fusion Showcase. Performing the grand finale is an amazing experience! We hope many of you can participate and contribute to that wonderful synergy at this year's event. *Performance is optional. Please feel welcome to learn the choreography and opt out of the Showcase Grand Finale.
