Fusion Style Belly Dance - Luminate Festival

Fusion Style Belly Dance


Presenter: Tracey Saunders
Suitable for: Adults only

Fusion Style Belly Dance is a modern form of belly dance which has evolved from traditional belly dance to incorporate movement vocabulary from Hip Hop, Flamenco, Contemporary Dance and Yoga among others to create a beautiful and dynamic new art form which encourages creativity and expression.

This workshop focuses on core Fusion Style Belly Dance movements and aesthetic, beginning with the demonstration and breakdown specific fusion moves individually. These movements will be drawn from the isolations, shimmies and undulations families of belly dance movement vocabulary.

Moves learned will be put together in a number of fun combos, and layering of two or more moves will also be covered. It is aimed at the beginner-intermediate level tribal fusion student but more advanced students will still find it helpful to revisit moves and will also be offered more advanced layers.

Participants will also be treated to a short performance which will demonstrate Fusion Style Belly Dance in action as well as display some common costume elements unique to the style.
