Let’s Get Flexy - Functional Mobility for bellydancers: In this workshop we will explore integrating flexibility into our isolations and layering. With a greater range of motion, dancing becomes easier, requires less energy, and you are not fighting with yourself but focusing on controlling your movements and expression. The focus will be on dynamic stretching: which means you’re stretching in moving motion, which is also referred to as active flexibility. But wait, there’s more...

Sinuous Flux, a Choreography: Long lines, full body fluidity and dynamic floorwork make this dance a meditation in movement.
