Enjoy a fun filled Datura Style® Belly Dance Workshop. This is a fast moving workshop covering a lot of ground. We’ll start with a warm up and overview of Datura arm and foot positions and dig into side to side movement technique including rib cage slides (horizontal and vertical), ribcage figure eights, sidewinder, side to side undulations, as well as pairing them up with foot and arm patterns. Time permitting we’ll also learn some Datura Vocabulary and combinations incorporating these movements. No refunds unless workshop is canceled by instructor.
