Juxtaposition—an original short choreography to “Escalate” by Tsar B with Sherri Wheatley

12:00 - 2:00pm

$45 Online pre-sale

One of the defining characteristics of fusion bellydance is the contrast between slow gooey movements and sharp contrasting percussive movements in the form of pops, locks and tics. Often the sharp movements are used as “punctuation” at the end of a long, milked out sentence or to accent a hit in the music. As both paces of movement require an extreme amount of muscle control, this workshop begins with specific drills and technique training. We then move on to short combinations expanding on our drills to include level and space orientation changes as well as more advanced layering. As with all of Sherri’s workshops, we will also focus on the theatricality of movement and experimenting with breaks in the 4th wall.

Combos & Textures with Julieta Maffia

2:30 - 4:30pm

In this workshop, Julieta will teach her favorite combinations inspired by the Fusion Bellydance technique but with touches of Retro Vintage Inspiration. In each combination we will work on different ideas and concepts so that you can raise your stage presence and perceive your body in a different way.
