Liquid Slink! Slow fusion phrases, technique, and choreography with Molly McClellan

Last year, attendees requested that I do a slow and sinuous workshop, so, I present to you…“Liquid Slink”! Beginning with a sequence of drills to help you build your slow technique, we will move into short phrases that are part of an ooey-gooey fusion choreography. This workshop is best for people with some previous belly dance experience and advanced variations will be given. Water bottle and journal for notes if they want them.

Hootchie-Kuchi - Burlesque Infused Belly Dance with Julia Diverdi

Whether it's Vamp, Pin-up, or Bombshell, the retro style of burlesque adds sugar AND spice to any belly dance style. Using jazz movement, showgirl struts, and sultry expression, we'll add some old-fashioned bump n' grind to our hip ups and umis! In this workshop we will focus on burlesque infused belly dance combinations that you can string together to create a unique dance or pepper into your own style for added spice. Workshop will also include a warm-up, across the floor exercises, isolation and layer drills, and a cool-down. Open to upper level beginners (basic belly dance vocab is a serious plus) to professional dancers. Bring water and dress to move. Red lipstick optional! No shoes for this workshop due to studio flooring.

We will then combine these with movement and progress to more of a conversation with each other and the music and will incorporate some fun new ideas on creating an illustration with your movement and zills.

This workshop offers musical understanding for those newer to zills along with creative challenges for intermediate and advanced zillers. Please bring zills, notebook and water bottle.
