THE ART OF DISCONNECT
Join Ariellah in a unique workshop that delves into her own technical philosophy, understandings and findings from 20 years of training in the genre of Tribal Fusion Belly Dance. The “Art of Disconnect” is her own personal philosophy and approach to Tribal Fusion Dance. She will share insights into her extensive study of this dance form. The dancer will receive discourse and exercises that help to create clear, strong, and more defined isolation work, involving the entire body and an entire philosophy and approach on creating stronger technique, not just in relation to isolations but that translates into fluidity and grace as well! The whole package! Ariellah’s hope is that the dancer will walk away with a much deeper understanding of the disconnect that is imperative in isolation work, creating fluidity, and mastering their art form.

DRAWING DOWN THE MOON
DRAWING INWARD, REFLECTING OUTWARD, BUILDING EXPRESSION AND CULTIVATING CREATIVITY
Gaze within to express on the outside.
What moves your soul? Why do you dance? Who or what is your muse or inspiration? What do you want to tell the world? What do you have to offer up? And who are you and what do you want to express? These are the myriad of questions we can ask ourselves in order to dance with more intention and as artists, give of ourselves to the dance, to ourselves, and to the audience. Gain knowledge and tools that help spark your creative side and work through internal exercises that can help elevate your dance practice, technique, and performance. We will touch upon quite a few internal subjects including awareness and intention and will culminate the intensive with learning a short choreography section in which the dancer will have the opportunity to infuse the ideas discovered in the workshop. From philosophy, to technique, to inward reflection and outward expression, and movement and choreography, this workshop has it all!
