Datura Style Technique: Hip Fundamentals
November 1 - December 20th

This 8-week session will focus on technique for big, beautiful hip movements, applicable to all styles of belly dance. You will learn and refine your execution of the Datura Hip Study, a ten minute "technique choreography" that, when practiced regularly, will increase range of motion, precision, and artistry of hip ups and downs, shimmies, and bumps, as well as improve your ability to add layers of footwork and arm movement to hip movements. Datura Style steps and combinations will be presented so that you can apply your understanding of technique to dance. Each class will begin and end with a simple yoga practice to prepare the body for belly dance posture and movement, and end with a brief conditioning practice to stabilize around the hips and low back.

This class is a complement to the Datura Style technique class. We’ll be using combos learned in the technique class to dance with others. You’ll learn how to dance in duets, trios, and quartets using Datura Style combinations you’ve learned and additional improvisational techniques I’ll teach you in this class. Topics on costuming, makeup, and crafting a performance will also be presented. As the name implies, performance opportunities are available, but they are optional! All levels of experience are welcome. You must also be registered for the entire technique and combinations class series. No drop-ins. Enrollment will be open to new participants at the beginning of each new class series, or by teacher permission. This is an ongoing class with a monthly fee.
