12.30pm - 2.30pm: Dominika Suchecka: Dance to express not to impress

During this workshop Dominika will share some useful techniques and ideas aiming to help tribal fusion dancers express emotions with dance and move not only the eyes but also the hearts of the audience. As a true oriental dance passionate and one of tribal fusion forerunners in Poland, as well as a person travelling to Cairo on a regular basis to learn oriental dance in its most authentic form, Dominika proposes a new approach to tribal fusion and how to bring it back to its roots. The goal during the workshop will be to incorporate some ready-to-use movements, concepts and exercises to tribal fusion, making it even more multidimensional and expressive, yet still preserving its tribal stylization.

Fee for individual bookings: £25 - CODE: DOMINIKA

3pm - 5pm: Agata Zakrzewska: Trance-fusion

The zar ritual is a Middle-Eastern tradition based on experiencing a trance through movement. There are a few common misconceptions about it, which we will clarify during a short theoretical introduction. We will also talk about possible interpretations and societal functions of this tradition. What can we discover when we combine tribal bellydance with our personal interpretation of the zar ritual? The idea behind this workshop is to get inspired by the zar and to find some common ground between this tradition and the philosophy of “sisterhood” and group cooperation in tribal bellydance. The power of community and support of a group is what gives us safe environment to be free in our dance, to be transformed and to grow. The workshop will consist of several improvisation and trance exercises, plus a few tribal fusion combos inspired by the zar. The idea is based on Agata’s choreography “Trance-fusion”, which was her bachelor’s diploma, and her research and experiences she had with her group while preparing it. Hair-tossing will not be required, class is suitable to any level of fitness. Wear something comfy, with layers.
