Rosa Noreen Exquisite Lines Workshop Saturday April 28th 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Your line is your physical signature, from the tips of your toes to your fingertips, from the curve of your ankle to the line of your neck. Refine your technique and embed good habits in your practice using such techniques as epaulement, the coordination of head, shoulders and arms.

Drawn from Rosa's classical ballet training, this methodology will teach you specialized techniques, concepts and drills to help you project from stage to the farthest reaches of the audience. Rosa will teach you to to create aesthetically and physically pleasing lines in dance that are right for *your* body.

Sophia Ravenna - Fan Veil Secrets- Saturday April 28th 3:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Fan veils are a beautiful, lyrical prop. Come learn how to make the silk flow, flutter, and fly as you dance. We’ll start with the basics,  discuss double and single fan veil technique, learn some simple combinations, and explore how to improvise over music of various styles and tempos. Appropriate for all styles of belly dance and burlesque (we can discuss how to tease and reveal with a fan veil, too!). Please bring a matched pair of fan veils (right and left) and your burning questions. Previous dance experience recommended.

Rosa Noreen Visionary Variations Sunday April 29th 201910:00 AM - 12:00 PM

The most memorable moments in a performance are often the simplest. Learn to harness your energy and stand out from the crowd. We will explore Rosa's signature methods of turning simple movements into arresting moments by exploring the intersection of your focus, tempo, technique and relationship to the music.

These techniques can make your improvisation more dynamic. They can help you get past choreographic writer's block. And they are great tools for teachers!

Sunday Dance Jam! Sunday April 29th, 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM
