In Part II of this Drum Solo Choreography Series we will be focusing on the use of shimmies, traveling steps and spins to build intensity within a performance! With these traveling steps we will be working on creating spacial awareness and dynamic staging. There will also be discussion of ways to have a strong presence on stage as a soloist and in a group performance.
Isolation patterns, shimmy drills for strong yet relaxed hip movement and tricks for remembering choreography will be featured in this class as well.
Class Level: This is an all levels class with bellydance technique being the main focus. Previous dance experience is helpful but not required. Students will be given individualized instruction to help them grow and improve as dancers.
Yoga will be included at the beginning and end of class for conditioning.
Please bring a yoga mat and finger cymbals.
(both are available at the studio to borrow as well)
Performance Opportunity!
Students who attend the full 6-class series of both Part 1 and Part 2 will have the option to perform the full choreography at a local bellydance showcase/hafla at the end of April. Those who can only attend the full 6-class series of Part 2 may also perform a shorter section of the choreography if they so wish. Performing is of course optional, more details to come!
There will be additional rehearsals on Wednesday April 1st, 8th, 15th and 22nd after class at 8:45pm for those planning to perform. Rehearsal fee will be $25 for all 4 rehearsals to cover studio cost.
If you are interested in performing please let me know before/after class or via e-mail.
