Datura Style™ Belly Dance Workshop

Datura Style™ Belly Dance Workshop
Vitality Wellness and Belly Dance Studio
4514 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh 15224
July 9th, 2:00PM-3:30PM
$25 in advance (+small PayPal fee)/$30 at the door

Datura Style™ Belly Dance is Rachel Brice’s approach to fusion style belly dance. In this workshop you’ll learn a variety of Datura Style™ vocabulary that can easily be inserted into Tribal Improvisation, used in choreography, or for your own personal practice. We’ll begin class with a warm up, drill combos from the Datura Studies (Arabic and Inverted Arabic, Ghawazee Prep, etc), and jump into learning the Hagallah Combo and more if time perrmits. The Hagallah Combo features juicy hip work, ¾ shimmy variations, hypnotic serpentine moves, and footwork. We’ll end class integrating these combinations in Tribal Improvisation. All levels are welcome, although some belly dance background is helful! Feel free to bring finger cymbals (I’ll have a few extras available) and a water bottle. Students enrolled in weekly classes with Sahra are eligible for a $5 discount. No refunds unless workshop is cancelled by instructor.
