This class elaborates and delves into Hannah’s signature form of Tribal Fusion interwoven with Sacred Earth Belly dance. We’ll be focusing on the elemental language inherent in the dance and how it is expressed through particular rhythms, styles, aesthetics and traditions.

Expect a cascade of intoxicating music, deep expression of movement, and a gaze at the workings of the drum solo, Turkish Roman, zar, and the taxim.

Each class includes a full warm up, root movements, musicality, sequences and intelligent improvisation.

During this series the full two hours will be taught as one class. All students ( Foundations as Intermediate) are welcome as each class will stand alone with its theme.

 CLASS DESCRIPTIONS     

*Foundations : Core technique, feeling and combinations.

Every Thursday night : 7-8pm.

This class is designed as a model for your core training of Belly dance in its raw form, in its sacred form and in its creative form. Our aim is to build posture and presence physically as we nurture our depth and alignment internally. Dance is a daily practice and we will learn to live the movements not just learn them.  We cover fundamental technique, alignment and knowledge in the Tribal repertoire and the Sacred Earth Belly dance language.

This class is suitable for beginners and for intermediate and beyond students consolidating their practice.

*Intermediate and Beyond. Choreography, Intelligent Improvisation and performance skills.

Every Thursday night : 8-9pm.

In this class we will expand our dance knowledge to involve choreographic sequences, intelligent improvisation, group and solo concepts, musicality, creativity, basic zilling and core rhythm theory.

This class is designed for those familiar with the dance vocabulary and intention within Hannah Mi Anis’ teaching repertoire. Even as a more advanced dancer, we recommend you attend the  Foundations class first, or in unison with this class to get the full feeling and technique.xx

LEVEL:
The Foundations class is designed for all levels. Suitable for beginners, and excellent for intermediate and beyond students’ continuing practice.
