Did you attend the summer workshops? We'd love your feedback!

You can register below for individual workshops or grab a summer pass for $200 ($165 EB) and go along to everything!

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTIONS
Back to Basics with Samina.
Open Level. Absolute beginners encouraged.

This workshop focuses on core bellydance movement, technique and posture. It's perfect for absolute beginners, and it's ideal if you'd like to give bellydancing a try before signing up for regular classes. Continuing to advanced students, you'll find it a great refresher. Aside from perfecting your technique, you can also challenge yourself with zill playing over core movements, or practicing/learning how to layer.

If you're a dancer practiced in another style, this workshop will help you find the grounded posture and stylings seen in Folkloric dances - particularly Ghawazee and Folkloric Baladi.

Slow Fusion Technique with Hadeeqa.
Continuing Beginner - Advanced.

Explore the art of slow movement as a way to add drama and emotion to your performance or to present a visually aesthetic contrast to fast accents. The workshop consists of intensive drills to slow down, control and isolate your movement. You'll use fusion-style combinations, adding accents and emotion, to demonstrate the power of slow movement.

'The Lantern' Fusion Choreography with Hadeeqa.
Intermediate - Advanced*

This choreography-focussed workshop will enhance your technique with slow movements, emotional expression, strong arm positions, and utilising contrasting accents. The workshop is packed full of drills and combinations that will be pieced together into a dark fusion-style choreography with (fake) hand candles!

You will find this workshop easier if you have also attended Slow Fusion Technique. However, it is not a necessary requirement - the two workshops are independent of one another.

*Continuing beginners are welcome. It is recommended that you also attended the technique workshop.
