Class Description:

What is vogue? * Vogue, or voguing, is a highly stylised, modern house dance originating in the late 1980s that evolved out of the Harlem ballroom scene of the 1960s. In its modern form, this dance has become a global phenomenon that continues to evolve both stylistically and demographically.

What is a stiletto heels workshop?

* Stiletto heels dance is a solo dance genre inspired by dance routines seen in pop and hip-hop music videos. Its techniques and dance vocabulary derive from a wide range of dance styles used in music video-style choreographies. It is characterised by dynamic footwork based on jazz dance, ballroom dance, Latin dance and go-go dancing styles, torso isolations borrowed from belly dance and hip hop dance and floor work, fluid arm work and body language coming from exotic dancing and contemporary dance.

Class Description:
This class is meant to combine intelligence and creativity, awareness and harmony, intuition and aesthetics. With an active mind, and through a moving body, we will explore the concepts of space, weight and fluidity, in order to find some functional dynamics and a deeper knowledge of our structure and unity.

While experimenting these concepts and clearing them by occasional and guided improvisations, we will also study some combinations and sequences which, through the use of gravity and ground, will let us enjoy new qualities of movement.

Leaving the memories of old experiences behind, the students will discover new ways of facing their techniques through different space levels – floor and more – without forgetting lightness and freedom.

In this workshop, we will start by working on contemporary dance technique that can be applied in the latter half of the workshop. During the composition module we will work with material from Stefano Fardelli's repertory, practicing a sequence from his Indian creation titled 'From "I" To "A"' by Eleven Movements. Using the same principles Stefano used to create the choreography with the Indian dancers we will work out a new choreography. The participants will use few tasks for creating their own material and so a new sequence alone and in couple can be composed.

Description:
As Tribal fusion dancers we have a soft spot for it: the backbend. We've all seen those impressive backbends, seemingly performed without effort, forming the transition to the infamous Turkish drop. Our spines are an incredible combination of strength and flexibility. Strong bones and large muscles give us structure and protect our sensitive nerves while flexible ligaments and tendons allow the spine to move in all different planes. But to perform a correct backbend takes knowledge, discipline and foremost: safe practice and preparation.

In the second class of the workshop series 'yoga for bellydancers: the backbend' you will be taught the mechanics of the backbend, the way it is performed by anatomically well-trained tribal fusion bellydancers. A safe yoga sequence with supporting poses will prepare you to work towards your personal perfect backbend and perform it with grace, strength and respect for your own body.
