Autumn Workshops and Hafla with the Phoenix Teachers

Join us for our Autumn Belly Dance Workshop Series featuring our 6 incredible Phoenix Belly Dance Teachers!

We will also have a FREE 45min Tribal Fusion taster class at 9am if you want to try it or bring a friend that has never tried it before. You do need to register for the free class to attend so that we can make sure we don't go over capacity.

Theme: Art of the Solo

The theme for the Autumn Workshops is Art of the Solo. We have selected 6 different topics to give students a holistic approach to creating or honing their soloist skills.

1.How to choreograph with DANIELLE
Music mapping, Motifs, Intention, Expression, and what to do when you get stuck

2.Planning your solo with LYNETTE
Genre and music selection, improv vs choreography (yours vs someone elses choreography), timeline, audience, and tips on optimising practice time

3.Semi-structured choreography with SETSUNA
Learn a partially choreographed solo with improvisation sections in between, and how to create performance ready pieces fast using this technique

4.Improvisation with ELEA
Your secret weapon, how to work on it, when to use it, tips, and things to watch out for

5.Developing your personal style with SAMIA
How to get inspired, signature moves, and self-development

6.Staging, Styling and off stage notes with CANDICE
How to make a good performance great. What are the magical things many dancers don't think of that are equally as important as the steps?

BONUS: 1 hour critique session with ALL TEACHERS
We have space for 6 dancers interested in receiving feedback on their performance at the hafla on Saturday night at Midnight Express. Participants will be able to provide an intention for their critique, ask follow up questions, and each participant gets 6 sets of individual feedback from the Teachers to help them identify areas that they might want to focus on.

From Beginners to Professionals this intensive one day course will equip you with tools that will make your solo path an easy one. Each topic will be taught over one hour, so you can come to all sessions or pick and choose what resonates with you. Bring a pen and notepad.

Check out our Teacher Profiles here. 

You can see our Teachers perform at the Hafla and enjoy some social dancing too! We have a few slots for attendees to perform if they are attending at least 3 workshops and will be allocated on a first-in, first-served basis. Music must be emailed by 15 March in MP3 format only to Thanks!
