Upcoming Events (2020)
MUSIC IN MOTION: Online Workshops & Hafla featuring Chudney Raks (USA)
We’ll be finishing 2020 with an online workshop and hafla event featuring a special international guest: Chudney Raks (USA)!
Music in Motion: Schedule
Saturday December 5, 2020; All times are in CET (Amsterdam/Berlin/Paris).
11:00-12:30 CET (90 mins): Middle Eastern Rhythm Study: Tricky & Uncommon Rhythms with Siobhan Camille
Join Siobhan Camille of Greenstone Belly Dance for a deep dive into Middle Eastern musical rhythms, and some fun combinations to dance on them! We’ll be covering some special tricky rhythms, branching out further than your regular 4/4 rhythms!
14:00-15:30 CET (90 mins): 5, 6, 7, 8, “AND” with ChudneY
Did you know “And” is sometimes considered a number in dance? This transition between 8 and 1 can single out the novice dancer from the professional. This workshop will help you connect the step between the end of a count set and the next, or the change in between phrases in music for the non counters. Through a series of basic combinations we will apply the “And” and transform the combinations into one seamless piece, using different techniques to dance on the “And”. Help 8 and 1 connect in your next masterpiece and forever be bonded!
There will be a recording available of both workshops for 2 weeks after the event.
19:30 onwards: Hafla time (belly dance party!)
Featuring live streamed performances from Chudney, Siobhan Camille, and special guests!
Looking forward to shimmying with you all!
