Workshop 1 - 10:30am – 12:30pm
Chic & Unique: New & Original Steps from Sa’diyya
In this workshop, students will learn several cute and original intermediate through advanced level combinations. These bellydance movement combinations can be used and modified to fit into a student's choreographies or improvisational performances. The combinations will fit with many different styles and rhythms, so there will be something taught for everyone! Sa'diyya spends a lot of time creating interesting movement combinations, and she's ready to share them with you! Come learn her latest unique steps AND learn how she comes up with them. Students will leave with super original steps as well as the keys to create their own chic and unique movements!
Workshop 2 - 1:30pm – 3:30pm
The Move Before The Move
Would you like to have incredibly fluid transitions? The accents and the move before the accents are like lightning and thunder - you can't have one without the other, as they are equally important, and they work together to create the total impact! Sa'diyya will thoroughly explain the secrets of successful transitions and instruct students on how to implement many key concepts into their dancing. Students will learn a short choreography with emphasis on the transitions and the little details that make a dance presentation go from good to great!
