Touch the Music
What is your favorite song? What is it that makes it special? What did you feel when you first heard it, and can you express that feeling when you dance to it? In this workshop, Carolena presents a series of drills to help find the suitable combinations and exact formations to match your favorite music. Learn how to let the music push you, giving the freedom to simply respond, particularly when you know the steps and formations, and trust your partners and audience.
Please be versed in the basics: Taxeem, Bodywave, Hand Floreo and Arm Undulations, Shimmy, basic Arabic, Basic Egyptian, Pivot Bump and Choo-choo.
Bring: zils, a full skirt is recommended but not mandatory.
