I am pleased to be teaching a beginner and intermediate belly dance fusion class this fall at The Abbey Studio! I feel this is an honour: to share my love of dance with others in a magical space that has become very special to me over the years.
This class is multi-level and appropriate for new dancers as well as for those with some years already under their coin belt. We will delve into the zen of drills to hone our technique, as well as learn combinations to help us embody movement and flow. Belly dance can be earthy and sensual, graceful and elegant, or fun and funky and I wish to tap into all those areas of joy throughout the session. It is also a great core workout and wonderful for our postures.
Due to my diverse dance background and my eclectic taste in music and pop culture, this class will have a strong fusion feel to it (with homage to the traditional roots of Middle Eastern dance, of course).
My approach to teaching is based on my years of studying traditional and fusion forms. I have had the opportunity to learn from talented local teachers Cathy Stoyko, Bridgit Salas, and Edith Jacob, as well as from international notables such as Tamalyn Dalal, Aziza, Rachel Brice, Mardi Love, Kami Little, April Rose, Coleena Shakti, Martina Crowe-Hewett, and Luciterra.
I am currently completing my Elemental Hoop Dance Teacher Training, so hula hoops may make a guest appearance, just for the fun of it!
