The Joy of Bellydance to Live Music
Saturday July 30th
Optional Application of technique - dance to live music!: 1-2pm
(yes, you can stay and watch if you don't want to dance)
$70 + tax - email email@example.com to sign up! Spaces are limited.
A rare and very special opportunity! Study the joy of improvised dancing to improvised Middle Eastern music - the true heart of bellydance!
Let Daniel MacNeil open your ears and your heart as he explains the secrets of listening to Middle Eastern Music, using the tabla and oud. He'll be discussing "Hearing Music" - A general approach to analyzing music, and making sense of what you're listening to. Topics covered include melody, maqamat (Arab and Turkish scales), taqasim (improvised solo), iqa'at (rhythmic modes/drum beats) and drum solo.
Laura Selenzi will discuss techniques to be truly present and "in the moment", letting the music flow through your body organically, as opposed to frantically thinking of the next move! Dancing to live music can be a deeply fufilling and joyful experience, this is your chance to try it out in a safe and supportive space.
Don't be intimidated by the subject matter, it will be fun, nourishing and inclusive! Dancers with any level of Bellydance knowledge are welcome.
