Program B Curriculum
Art Between Steps
Steps are just bookends for the real dance that expresses musical embellishments and emotional nuance. The real magic and art happens between the steps, in the transitions. Your individuality and life story connected with the music and your body have much to tell. The richness between the steps is what makes an engaging dance artist.
A good choreographer needs to be a good improviser and a good improviser needs to be a good choreographer. The skills go hand in hand. Be on point in your improvisation. Stay the course of the musical nuances, the arch of the piece, the changing dynamics. Learn how these things will inform your dance in the moment.

For ensembles and soloists – Creating choreography for student recitals or to express music or abstract ideas and tell a story. Creating meaningful choreographic art.

It is designed to unleash an inner ancient life force that is Bellydance and the creative joy it embodies. It is an experience that one gets the most benefit from if one has no preconceptions. Taking place behind locked doors, the participants are sworn to secrecy after the workshop. All do so willingly as they do not want to ruin the experience for anyone else.
