This workshop is SOLD OUT!!
This workshop introduces both basic and advanced sword dancing techniques. We’ll discuss sword holds and poses, dramatic “martial” moves that evoke images of combat, and movements that fuse bellydance isolations with sword movements. We’ll discuss how to balance the sword on your head while doing isolations, traveling movements, floorwork and spinning. Finally, we’ll discuss how to structure sword performance for maximum dramatic impact.
This workshop will include a section on floorwork moves and combinations, so we suggest bringing kneepads and wearing yoga pants or leggings. A notebook, a video device, and a yoga strap would also be useful for this workshop. Some swords will be available to borrow, but please bring your own if possible.
Students will receive a digital handout that provides all kinds of practical advice about dancing with swords.
This workshop is recommended for advanced beginners and up.
Fee: $35 in advance, $45 at the door
