Oriental Fantasy with Veil
"Aa Bali Habibi" by Elissa

The veil can be a beautiful extension of your body and can be used as an instrument to emanate music and convey emotion. This contemporary style belly dance choreography will transport your audience to another place and time as you tell a story through movement and expression. You will learn fun and creative ways to frame the body with your veil, and make smooth transitions which include traveling, spins and wraps. Please bring a veil, and comfortable dance shoes. Veil should be about 3 yards in length.

Workshop D | 4:30p-7:00p
Studio B2 on Sunday, 8/30

Classical Belly Dance, Sonia Style
“Ebn El Belad” by Ibrahim Moussa

In this workshop, she will share some of her favourite dance phrases, inspired by modern Egyptian styles. Elements of classical ballet will be infused into traveling floor patterns and spins layered with intricate and subtle hipwork, while maintaining effortless upper body postures and transitions. All material presented in this workshop will provide you with an effective and dynamic vocabulary, which can be incorporated into any dance style and routine. Wearing soft dance shoes is encouraged.
