Improvised Bellydance - An Alternative to the Stress of Remembering Choreography

Image
Have you ever been to a dance workshop and forgotten it all by the time you got home? Me too! Even
after becoming a dance teacher myself, I would attend workshops for my own professional development, only to find myself feeling like I had two left feet as I struggled to learn a bunch of new combinations in a short amount of time. Most workshops focussed on my weakest attribute - memory!

I don't know about you, but I can't learn a choreography in two hours and leave the workshop with a new routine installed in my repertoire. My brain just doesn't work that way. I imagine it's because I didn't go to any dance classes until I was twenty-six years old; a late start for a dancer. I had never worn a tutu, twirled a baton or stood on-stage caked in mum's make-up to perform a cute routine for calisthenics. I was an absolute beginner. The closest I had come to performance was my miraculous inclusion with the 'cool girls' in a choreographed performance of 'F…

Winter Bellydance Classes in the Yarra Valley

Image
Class dates have been announced for winter 2018.

By the end of term it will be SPRING!

This makes me happy. 😀
We begin Thursday 9th of August and dance for 7 weeks until the 20th September. Class begins at 7pm and runs for an hour.  This term will be a particularly WARMING term of progressive Bellydance drills that get you moving from toe to head.

This is an open level class. Beginning dancers will get to see where they are going and Experienced dancers get a review of where they have come from. All levels are welcome to join, but this is a small class and places are limited, so book early.
Please book your place by phoning Seville Community House on 03 5964 3987. Wear warm exercise pants and a fitted top and jacket to stay warm. A scarf tied around the hips really helps you feel like a Bellydancer. Any scarf long enough to wrap around the hips is a good start. Sarongs work well too.

Although we usually dance barefoot, the venue is carpeted, so it is safe to keep your socks on during…

Hyper After Dance Class?

Image
Our class at Seville has been pretty lively as each dancer in this mixed level class finds their place. We are fitting 3 choreographies into our hour. One of the developing choreographies is a spiritual dance to invoke the alchemical power of the elements of nature. When harmonised, these energies promote balance and healing.

Majickal Bellydance is a therapeutic style of bellydance. Each dancer's own unique abilities and strengths are considered. Choreographies are written with each dancer in mind, just enough to expand without overwhelming. It is based on Classical Egyptian Bellydance, infused with ancient wisdom.

My interest in healing includes human consciousness; Specifically, how to effectively manage its dynamic and complex dance. Being able to manage our own energy state helps us to manage our lives more harmoniously, leading to increased self-mastery.

I'm often hyper after dance class. Even when we finish with relaxation techniques, by the time I have packed up and dri…
