Starting 2018 off with 2 workshops in Brighton on 28th January!
ACT Brighton, 8-10 Rock Place, Brighton, BN2 1PF
2 x 2-hour workshops with a 15 minute break
ATS® Technique and Combos 12:00-14:00
Come and learn this dynamic and elegant style of belly dance and experience the magic of dancing with others!
We will focus on steps and concepts from the FatChanceBellyDance® syllabus, including finger cymbals, formations and chorus-work. The class will start with a strong warm-up to prepare our bodies for dance and end with a thorough cool-down.
This workshop is open to beginners, those with some experience of belly dance and those with previous knowledge of ATS® desiring to hone their skills and dance in group.
ATS® Musicality in Motion 14:15-16:15
The music makes us move and inspires us to dance but how best to use it to compliment and accentuate the rich tapestry of this dance style?
In this workshop we will work with music suitable for ATS® -dissecting it fully, understanding how to hear the musicians’ cues and how to use the energy in the song to build a dynamic and captivating performance.
Some common rhythms used in belly dance will be discussed and we will learn how even a basic understanding of them can help to guide your improvisation. We will also play with some alternative finger cymbal patterns to create variety and add a pinch of spice to the presentation.
This workshop is open to dancers with previous ATS experience.
Bring finger cymbals, water, snacks, notebook and a smile! (There will be some cymbals available to borrow for beginners.)
Cost for 4 hours: £40
Each workshop: £22
