Embody Your Body with Aziza (1.5 hours)

15:00 – 16:30 CET (Amsterdam/Berlin/Paris) / 9:00 – 10:30 EST (Montreal/New York)

Secrets of transformational transitions, breath, stillness, and PRESENCE! In this workshop we will explore concepts of posture, engagement, and being fully present. Theories will be practised and applied to meditative long combos. More than learning steps, Aziza wants to share an approach that enhances your quality of movement!

Isolation Exploration with Siobhan Camille (1.5 hours)

17:00 – 18:30 CET (Amsterdam/Berlin/Paris) / 11:00 – 12:30 EST (Montreal/New York)

Our muscles are always contracting in order to create movement. But as raqs sharqi dancers, we often make a conscious decision to actively contract certain muscle groups more than others. In this workshop, we’ll explore multiple ways to drive and accentuate many of our favourite isolations: hip lifts and drops, belly rolls, chest isolations, and more! We’ll put it all together in a fun combination, contrasting both isolated and relaxed movements!

Virtual Hafla featuring Aziza of Montreal, Siobhan Camille, and more!

20:30 – 22:00 CET (Amsterdam/Berlin/Paris) / 14:30 – 16:00 EST (Montreal/New York)

Hafla time (belly dance party!) featuring live streamed performances from Aziza (CA/USA), Siobhan Camille (NZ/NL), and special guests! Plus, mini-lessons, time for free dancing, and prizes!
