Come Learn Choreography
Just what it says... Come out and learn an original choreography by Audra. We'll see how much we get through, but I'll pull from the current work that I'm developing for myself or Lavish.
But it's more than learning the dance - it's a window into my musicality, nuance, and my creative thoughts. Why I put things together the way I do, what I'm trying to express with my movements, and the ways angles, weight and breath can all work together to get my point across.
All levels welcome - this workshop will be a good challenge for more beginner dancers, and a challenge for those more experienced :D
No experience with non-traditional or modern belly dance required
SATURDAY, APRIL 27
Noon - 2 pm
NEW FUN: TECHNIQUE & DANCE COMBINATIONS
Come dance with me as I teach you a few dance phrases from my own practice. Maybe fast, maybe slow, they’ll be a mixture of technique and creative ideas.
It’ll be all new (for you) and all kinds of fun (for everyone).
I’ll start off by outlining and drilling the technique we'll be using, and then we'll talk about and layer on, the simple shapes and ideas that are the base of each phrase. Options for all levels will be provided.
THE LAVISH DIVE
Since 2009, Lavish has been experimenting with, practicing, refining and performing a version of group improvisation that we have coined ‘diving’. In this workshop, Audra will lead you through several of the exercises and situations that we utilized along the way as we developed our dive skills.
These concepts will help to develop your personal sense of awareness, presence, openness, intuition and decision making, and can be used in solo or group improvisation in practice or performance.
If you can, it’s helpful (but certainly not mandatory) for your entire group to attend the workshop with Audra, so you all have a chance to learn the concepts first hand, so everyone has the basic idea before you begin to work to develop the skills as a group.
SUNDAY, APRIL 28
Noon-2 pm and 3-6 pm
TAKE IT BACK SAMPLER
Drawn from the 2 years of sold out intensives, we'll take a look back before performance, and before we create combinations. We'll use discussion and guided group exercises as we explore our idea of movement and its motivation.
Part experiment, part investigation, this workshop aims to provide alternative ways of thinking about movement, new pathways, and to introduce concepts that provide concrete methods for us to motivate our movement.
I've seen incredible changes in those who have taken these intensives, and many participants have told me it's completely changed the way they think about dance.
Open to all levels, all styles. Anyone who's interested is welcome.
Please bring an open mind!
