Saturday September 2nd

10am-12pm
Wendy Broadway
Sisterhood of Steel- Experience sword dancing without compromising the magic of the famous improvisational dance, American Tribal Style(R),
created by Carolena Nericcio-Bohlman and FatChanceBellyDance(R). The format has been noted by many to be a great way to thread the gaps between dancing, and belly dance sword tricks. Learn how to dance with your sword, how to transition into balancing, and floor work....all of which compliment the existing ATS format. Additionally, we'll review the fundamentals of balancing including Wendy's Sword Meditation. This workshop is a must for the ATS dancer who's looking to spice up their sword presentation but can equally benefit the Tribal Fusion dancer.



1pm-3pm
Shems

Ethnic Roots of the Sword Dance - Dig into tradition to deepen your personal relationship to a most dramatic dance partner, the sword. This workshop introduces various sword and balancing dances from the Middle East and North Africa done in their ethnic and folkloric context, then goes on to demonstrate how these traditions can inform approaches to dancing with a sword as part of a Belly Dance routine.

3pm-5pm
Samira Shuruk
Sword Craft - Learn to weave magic with your sword work (for all styles). This workshop starts with concepts for choosing strong music, and musicality options, and moves on to how you shape your sword dance to build drama, draw in the audience, and keep them entranced. We will cover standing moves, level changes, floor work, turns and transitions, with emphasis on you developing your own style and enchantment.
