  1. Tribal Fusion Bellydance

Stage is the space where art is happening.  When we get a chance to be on stage let’s take advantage of it!  We can conquer every single piece of this space and create surprises for our audience.  Moving around can be uncomfortable for tribal fusion dancers that are mostly used to executing isolations staying in place.  But there are great ways of travelling without loosing the unique fluid feeling of tribal fusion.  In this class we will learn combos and play games to find unusual ways of getting around stage creating all kinds of shapes.

  1. Drum solo

The main secrets of Diana Gnatchenko, the main ideas and way to dance drum solo. How to do visible the small and detailed technique? We'll learn to fill the music correctly and use the space around yourself. Contrasting technology. What it is? How and where to use it?!

  1. Baladi modern

 Choreography with favorite composition.  We will learn hard spectacular elements, learn how to use advantageous foreshortenings in choreography, will learn through the subtleties of working with the plastic of the body, you will learn to do and understand what seems impossible. The main idea of class is music understanding and we're not going to dance with music, we will try to paint it.
