9:30- 12:00 March 13th 2010
Orientale routine to “Raks Verona” 7 mins
This routine is full of wonderful, rich dance combinations. It encompasses many different styles in the one routine. The morning workshop will cover a beautiful veil entrance that could be used on its own or with the dance. Then we add a little bit of taxim and to finish off the morning followed by a fun and challenging saiidi routine.
1:00p.m.- 3:30 p.m.
We will continue the routine in the afternoon by refreshing what we learnt in the morning and then go into the next segment: the khaleegy, which is a dance originally from the gulf. The routine will then move into a cute little accented sequence and then conclude with the combination learnt at the beginning of the day!
This routine is absolutely fabulous as a solo or as a troupe dance!
9:30a.m.-12:00 March 14th
Salsa /Belly Dance! 5 mins
Ladies you will need your flat dance shoes for this one or even better a heel is preferred for some sexy salsa dancing!!!!!
This workshop is cute, sexy, fun and cheeky and has elements of the jazz style in it. In the morning we will work on the technique:- the foundations and the combinations of Salsa. Most of this time will be spent learning how to dance in high heels and how Latin dance feels in the body (as it is quite different to belly dance). This routine has elements of both. There will be lots of dance drills and repetition in the morning.
1:00- 3:30p.m. March 14th
The afternoon workshop time will be spent putting it all together in a fun and vibrant little choreography!
Please wear red and black and a red flower in your hair for this workshop. It is important to be in character and have lots of fun and giggles to execute the real style and feel of the Latin dancer!
***Melissa will have all the music used in the workshops available for purchase as well as a DVD with the routines on it.***
