TRAVELING TECHNIQUE AND STEPS WITH OMARIS (3 HOURS) – SATURDAY 10 AM- 1 PM $65 a la carte / $75 at the doorTraveling steps are essential for developing smooth transitions and fluidity in movement and also to create visual interest and texture on stage – remember, belly dance is more than standing still and showing off isolations! This is a technique workshop designed to teach you to float across the stage, improve posture and increase your dance vocabulary. Also, a variety of multidimensional movements, glides, crosses, turns; and show you how to make accents that follow the music as you travel will be covered. Omaris will also show you how these traveling steps can be altered or modified and adapted to your own personal dance style. This workshop is for serious beginners yet challenging enough for advanced dancers alike. 2. BELLY BOMBA WITH KARLOS (2 HOURS) – SATURDAY 1:30 PM- 3:30 PM $60 a la carte / $70 at the doorBomba: a traditional music style with roots in Spanish, African and Taino culture that is the Latin equivalent of a Middle Eastern drum solo. Bomba is a discipline that unlike most drum solos the drummer must follow the dancer and respond to their movement. This time Karlos is going to bring his heritage, passion and talent and share a new interpretation of how to do a drum solo. There’s nothing like a new way to move to a beat! $60 a la carte / $70 at the door3.
