Workshops with Safiya Nawaar
Safiya Signature Technique
10 am to 12am
Safiya’s Signature Oriental Raqs Sharqi Technique & Combos
Join international instructor and performer Safiya Nawaar for a belly dance workshop focusing on her signature moves. A fun energetic class combining stagecraft and emoting, internalizing your movements, and creating beautiful lines through posture and arms. We will work on traveling steps, combinations, and how to be dynamic on stage through use of flow and energy. Safiya will be drawing on her 20 years of experience as a professional belly dance performer and teacher to lead this class. Her specialties include the traditional and folkloric dances from Lebanon, Egypt, Turkey and Persia.
This workshop will be appropriate for all levels of dancers. We will work through each movement from the ground up, discussing posture, leg placement, center of balance, arm positions, and attitude. For the more experienced dancers we will be adding more challenging combinations and layering.
BEST if you bring you own lunch or snack.
Sensual Veils with Safiya
12:30 to 2:30
Safiya will help dancers in this workshop to love their veil and treat it as a dance partner rather than a prop. Students will learn to recognize the rhythms in the music, and will practice utilizing the rests and accents to create flow and pauses in their veil dance. We will work on slinky and elegant traveling steps, wrapping and unwrapping of the veil, releasing and retrieving with ease, as well as internalized sinuous movements, and hypnotic, entrancing moves of a dancer with a veil.….all to create a sensual and dynamic experience that can be used for personal enjoyment, or performance.
It is recommended that students bring a Silk Veil, at least 3 Yards long.
Note: A chiffon veil will work, but does not flow the same.
Singel Workshop $45
