Vera House Benefit Workshop
Puttin' on the Ritz Dance Studio
October 4, 2014 from 2-4pm
Save the date! The Syracuse Area Bellydancers' Association (SABA) is hosting Ionah to teach a Layering & Modern Fusion Stylization workshop to benefit Vera House, a local shelter for survivors of domestic violence seeking safety and advocacy! Your participation in the workshop helps women in need as many of the proceeds go directly to Vera House! Hafla from 4-6pm afterward gives students a chance for an informal performance. Dance or sit back and relax and be entertained by the other dancers! Bring a dish to pass and get to know your dance community
Ionah's Layering workshop starts with technique for the beginning dancer and intermediate student wishing for refinements. It then moves on to more advanced layering - and it's not all about shimmy layers. These are modern layers for the stage that make you stand up, stand out, and dance tall. Using this technical foundation, Ionah then shares her brand of fusion: Oriental fusion. Using a little modern dance theory,, cultural theory and historical tidbits, you'll be learning some combinations that will really shake up your notion about what is and what isn't fusion and how to break out of your old ruts in your dance no matter your preferred style of dance!!
Register now to get the early bird pricing before it ends September 20th!
