12 - 2pm: liquid arms and hands
This workshop is specifically focusing on creating liquid arm and hand movements, aimed for fusion belly dance stylisation with elements of flamenco and hip hop. Hilde will help you creating more fluidity in your movements by honing your technique through specific exercises, drills and arm combinations. We will learn also how we can add beautiful arm movements to our dance practice so we get to dance fully by the end of the class.
PLEASE NOTE: This workshop will have different techniques and combinations than the February workshop! Open to all levels and suitable for any style of bellydance.
2.15pm - 4.15pm: 3/4 shimmies
In this 2 hour workshop focus will be on 3/4 shimmies and variations. We will focus on the technique of travelling hip work to start with, then focusing on 3/4 shimmies on the up, on the down and Egyptian walk. We will learn some variations too such as overshimmies and sideways Egyptian + transition techniques. Towards the end of class we will work on some fun travel sequences encorporating the techniques we learnt. Open to all levels and suitable for any style of bellydance.
