11:00am-1:30pm - "INSPIRING STAGE CRAFT" SPECIAL ONE OF A KIND SEMINAR FOR THE HBDC
Instructor: Sadie Marquardt

Dancers invest a lot of time and money honing their technical skills. Technique is the first foundation to be laid, but what comes next? Performance and stage skills require just as much, if not more, consideration than the physical technique we train our bodies with. The fine art of performance will not just magically happen on its own when you hit the stage. The good news is there are many practical learning applications that can help dancers take their performance from good to ahhhhhhhmazing!!
 In this workshop Sadie will share some industry techniques as well as her personal stage secrets to help you not just move your body but move your audience with an emotional response!
We will explore staging and how to make sure you are owning the stage. We will develop presence and persona and we will play around with show stopping tricks and techniques to help you engage your audience.
Don't just dance, INSPIRE!!!

8:00am-10:00am - Move like a snake: what tribal-fusion bellydance can bring into your dance. (Intermediate to advance)
Instructor: Silvia Salamanca
This workshop is a re-exploration of classic bellydance from a natural movement perspective.  Taking our cues from the fundamental principles of baladi and folk dance, we’ll harness our body weight for easeful and juicy movement that agrees with the way our bodies are built.  The principles of classic Egyptian dance will guide us in rediscovering our bodies, from the ground up.  It will provide the tools for creating unique movement that feels good, and that can be a creative tool in improvisation or choreography.

5:00pm-7:00pm- Dabke & Bedouin Dance
Instructor: Simon
This class begins with an introduction to Lebanese dabke: the basic 6 count line dance with three combinations of different levels of complexity, and the different rhythm and lyric dialect variations used.  The class continues with dance combinations showing the influence of folklore and the Bedouins of the Middle East on the Oriental style.  We will drill the combinations to complete a high energy intermediate choreography combining oriental concepts with folklore transitions and combinations. Please bring plenty of water and shoes that provide good arch support, suitable for energetic dance.
