Some Assembly Required, Bellydance Technique Intensive with Ilea Bizarre

May 15, 2021 • 10:00am-2:30pm

4 hour Bellydance intensive including drills and choreography. 

Practice makes perfect, right? But how do we get the most from our dedicated practice time? What if drills are just getting boring???

In this 4hour intensive, we will be breaking all the way down to the basic individual isolations, which are the building blocks to all belly dance stylizations, in order to establish a deeper mind to muscle connection, strengthen the muscles, and increase control, flexibility, and range of motion.

These isolations will then combined using simple formulas to create and endless variety of drill combos, perfect for practice as well as performance, as these combos will be sturdy foundations upon which to build choreography.

You will leave this workshop not only with combos of my creation, but also everything you need to create custom combos of your own, adaptable to any skill you are working to strengthen.

Tickets: $60
