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.
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!
