“Fairy tales” (2h)

Basing our work on fairy tales, we will develop movement and short stories

associated to various characters and archetypes, shifting from male to female

to animal to fantasy characters: Prince Charming, The Evil queen, Sleeping

beauty, the White rabbit, the Cat, Dragon, Witches. Exploring those figures

as soloist and in a group, be prepared for a fun class full of interesting

interactions. We will also work with the way a fairy tale is built: a hero, a

vilain, a purpose for a quest,… a fight and an ending.

“Liquid Belly Break Yoga”: Creative and Powerful floor work (2h)

NB: pretty physical workshop

Technique, combinations. intermediate-advanced 2h

Get back to the source. Pull the energy from the ground. Dancers are invited to perceive the

floor as a new dimension and play with their center of gravity. We will explore new ways by

spreading the body weight on various body parts (hands, hips, back, legs…). Anasma will explain

how to build up to certain Asanas so that each dancer can build strength and endurance at their

own pace, giving options for different levels of difficulty. These are baby steps towards a safe

and slow breakdance.

In order to do so, we will incorporate De Rose Method Yoga principles and body work, as well

as Modern dance into our Hip Hop Bellydance Liquid Fusion (popping, tutting).

We will learn techniques, play with creating our own combos and if times allows, create a short

combo or choreography. Recommendation: bring your kneepads and your granola bars.
