Modernize your Bellydance – Marina D.Ray (Montreal, QC)

Saturday 13 July, 2019
11:15 – 13:15



Let’s break out some ballet and modern dance technique! This workshop is designed to give you tools to enrich your fusion bellydance practice and give your creations more impact. We’ll dig into classical ballet principles to help refine lines and develop an effortless, airy quality you can apply to your bellydance vocabulary. We’ll also explore some dynamic modern dance concepts such as fall and recovery, travelling steps, sharp turns and pirouettes, as well as how to safely hit the floor. Marina will share her methods of combining these various styles via a lyrical combination you can take home. No previous experience with either style is necessary, this is not about how high how you can lift your leg!

Danger Zone 3: Montreal Drift – Cult of Yes (Montreal, QC) 

Saturday July 13, 2019
14:30 – 16:30

 

You asked for it, we love it, let’s get BACK IN THE DANGER ZONE!
We’re plotting something totally new and totally fun for 2019.
Here’s the drill: in two hours, we’ll learn a whole choreography and then we’ll dance it together at one of the festival shows. Yes, in the same weekend.

Don’t worry, you got this. Our aim is not to create a perfect dance, but rather something raw, alive, and authentic. This is an exercise in saying yes to the moment, and we’ll all get to experience that thrilling shiver of doing something before we’re totally ready.

Great for adrenaline junkies, dancers who are looking to slay fear and perfectionist tendencies, or for folks who simply want to take a peek at how we make dances and get their sweat on.

You aren’t scared, are ya?


TEK ATTACK!!! CLASS OF DUM – Mardi Love (U.S.)

Saturday July 13, 2019

Ha! Couldn’t Help It.

Silken Cobra – Arms & Fluidity – Jill Otter (Quebec, QC)

Sunday July 14, 2019
9:00 – 11:00

This tribal belly dance and Indian fusion workshop puts the spotlight on arms, hands and upper body lines, with a focus on finesse and precision. You’ll come away with a richer dance vocabulary, better body awareness, and tools to develop intricate, intriguing effects and illusions. Inspired by traditional Indian dances such as Kathak, Odissi, and Garba, this class will look into aesthetics, balance and harmony, thinking of the body as a smooth wave. Dancers will put theory into practice through exercises and short combos.

New Choreography, Mardi’s Choice – Mardi Love (U.S.)

Sunday July 14, 2019
11:15 – 13:15



Just like it sounds, we’re learning a new piece. Hooray! Movement will be presented in sentences, thoroughly broken down and drilled, while careful attention will be given to the hows and whys and the smaller details in the dance. Side note: When I teach a choreography class, it is my intention not to simply feed you a dance that you take home and repeat on your stage (though that’s certainly one option), but that you 1. may pick up a few movements/sentences of movements/transitions that resonate with you, and 2. that you may gain some insight as to how I like to build a dance; that is how I see the music and illustrate it in movement.

 Collaboration and Connection – Dubrikato (IE, UK, US)

Sunday July 14, 2019
13:30 – 15:30



How do you bring together dancers from different cities or countries and create a piece of work from scratch with limited time? How do you work harmoniously with others, either familiar troupe-mates or new collaborators?

Violet, Stacey and Charlotte of multi-national fusion dance collective Dubrikato bring you their wealth of experience with group dynamics, collaboration and building community. Part lecture (including handouts) and part dance workshop, you will come away with the tools to create lasting connections with your peers and quickly create unique material that will become beautiful group compositions.

Slowly……New Sentences – Mardi Love (U.S.)

Sunday July 14, 2019
