WORKSHOP DESCRIPTIONS:

Aziza (Montreal, Canada)

 

Technique Workshop - Aziza’s exquisite and undeniable mastery of the stage is matched by her skill in the seminar classroom. An intuitive, concise and generous instructor, Aziza excels at inspiring dancers to reach the next level. A lifelong student herself, she continually seeks inspiration as she travels the world, discovering new and revisiting familiar movement forms, always presenting material that is fresh and exciting. In this workshop she will walk you through sassy rhythm-specific combination's to add to your dance vocabulary. Exploring both stationary and traveling combination's to create patterns on the stage. This workshop will also touch on the basics of ballet for belly dancers to enhance posture and body lines, turns, arabesques, foot patterns, and presentation. Aziza shares the skills she gleaned from years of studying classical ballet and merged into her Arabic dance repertoire. Each day will start with AZIZA's Conditioning for a Dancers Body workout, a must for any serious dancer's training.

Choreography workshop- In this workshop you will learn one of Aziza's newest choreographies full of intriguing isolations, dazzling shimmies, and cheeky humor! A high energy Oriental mergence with some saidi elements and a veil intro!! Each day will start with AZIZA's Conditioning for a Dancers Body workout, a must for any serious dancers training.

Sera Solstice

Lunar Movement:  An in-depth journey into Sera's lunar movement vocabulary, and how to access the depths of the body and the deep lineage of bellydance through movement.  Lunar movement is focused upon isolations and fluidity in direct relationship to expression, alignment, and honoring of the inner self.  Challenging combinations develop true grace, dancers movement, extension and fluidity of the entire body.

 

Solar Movement:  An in-depth journey into the powerful expression of Sera's Solar Movement vocabulary.  Solar movement is focused on expansive, travelling, fast, deep bellydance movement.  Hard-driving combinations develop strength, stamina, grace through quick weight-changes, and clarity of movement.  Dancers activate inner-force, balancing trust in the body, and trust in the self to move confidently in the world.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTORS:

Aziza is one of the brightest, most in-demand stars of bellydance in the world today, recognized across the globe for her unparalleled ability to express the unique synergy of movement and sound that is the hallmark of this ancient art form. Her innate musicality, effortless creativity and lifelong training allow Aziza to fully inhabit the dance, simultaneously capturing a range of emotion and intensity of expressive movement - subtle yet intense, fluid yet strong, poetic and powerful. Aziza is of the rare and gifted breed of performer whose styling is instantly recognizable, yet always evolving and new.

 

Aziza’s exquisite and undeniable mastery of the stage is matched by her skill in the seminar classroom. An intuitive, concise and generous instructor, Aziza excels at inspiring dancers to reach the next level. Promoters and students alike appreciate her ability to present well-organized, relevant and useful material that is accessible and challenging to all levels of dancers from beginner to professional. A lifelong student herself, she continually seeks inspiration as she travels the world, discovering new and revisiting familiar movement forms, always presenting material that is fresh and exciting.  To study with Aziza is to be moved by her genuine devotion to her beloved art and to each and every dancer that comes to learn with her.

 

Sera Solstice is most known for creating the East Coast Tribal style of Bellydance, characterized by Lunar and Solar movement categories, which use extensive full-body movement, intense multi-layer hipwork within pop'n lock elements, tied together by deep emotive power and story-telling flow. Sera Solstice is the founder and director of Solstice Studio: a Bellydance Studio in New York City, with over 300 active participants using Bellydance as a means for building self-empowerment, expression, and creativity.  Sera is director/choreographer of the dance troupe Solstice Ensemble, and has taught numerous workshops and performed throughout Europe, South America, and Asia. Sera's Choreography has been described as "complex, content-rich, sublime, haunting, psychedelic, technically superb, at the forefront of evolution of bellydance as an art form."

 

Sera was a full-time Sculptor upon discovery of Bellydance, and has transferred from her medium of clay and metal into the body moving through space.  Although she challenges dancers to find deeper expression in their movements, Sera is known for her hard-driving, highly technical classes.  She believes one must first master their tool-set before putting it to use.  Sera is a former core member of 3 acclaimed dance companies: Bellyqueen, The Silk Road Dance Company, and Raqs Sahara.  Sera has the blessing to be able to study with many excellent instructors of our time.  She credits the foundation of her technique, form, and discipline was by means of her intensive formal apprenticeship with Rachel Kay Brookmire (of DC's Sahara Dance).
