Truman State University
Pershing Building 225
Kirksville, MO 63501
$25 for one class/$40 for both.
12:30-2:30 PM: The Building Blocks of Contemporary Fusion
This two-hour workshop begins with a challenging stretching and conditioning/toning warm-up designed to target key muscles used in many styles of dance. Students then will participate in drills to refine and hone popping and locking technique and smooth and snaky movement. Modern dance, burlesque, and Odissi Indian dance technique will be introduced to give students more building blocks to pair with belly dance.
3:00-5:00 PM: Contemporary Fusion Games and Combinations
This two-hour workshop opens with several “dance games” designed to get students to think creatively and to explore their own style of movement. Several dance combinations will follow that focus on each dance style from the previous workshop – a modern/belly dance combo, a burlesque/belly dance combo, popping/locking/belly dance combo, etc. Combinations be taught in a cardio-dance style workout.
Hope to see you there!
