In this workshop we'll take a look at the feminine archetype and role in our culture as well as in the middle east, understanding the roots from where the dance derived from. Modern Belly Dance drills, warm ups, technique and combos will be applied to the theme as we weave together a ritual to honor our bodily wisdom. A safe container will be created to explore how we feel and perceive ourselves in a our beautiful bodies. Together we will understand how to utilize this ancient art of belly dance as a tool for healing as well as empowering our body image.
Learn to embody the presence of your prayer, as well as intention in performance art. What is the foundation of ceremonial art and how do we bring that element into our dance? Learn how to prepare the body and mind to become a vessel for channeling specific presences in sacred spaces. Learn the elements of creating ritual though a 4 part format. If your interested in facilitating circles come to understand the tools for properly clearing space, opening and closing circles. This workshop is open to Men and Women.
