American Tribal Style® Belly Dance
Energetic Body, Quiet Mind
Stop thinking and start dancing!
Carolena Nericcio-Bohlman’s name is synonymous with tribal-style dance as it is known in American subculture today. In this unique and energizing workshop with Carolena, you will experience a series of creative, expansive, and engaging exercises that will turn your mind off and switch your body on.
Steeped in tradition with added contemporary flair, your steps and gestures will translate from consciousness to muscle memory, ultimately dancing you into a state of wakeful relaxation and joy.
You will learn:
- The basics of taxeem, bodywave, hand floreos, arm undulations, shimmy, Arabic belly dance, Egyptian belly dance, pivot bump, and choo-choo
- To use zils (finger cymbals) for keeping time with the music
- The magic of improvisation using formations and chorus.
By virtue of internalizing the movements and releasing your thought processes, you will be able to communicate with your partners without words, and allow the music to move you.
Come dance in community, shake off stress, express yourself in movement, and open up to new ways of feeling at home in your body. Whether you are looking for a new, fun way to exercise or you want to connect in a deeper way with the messages of your body, you will take home an exciting new practice.
Discover the basics of belly dance for fun and self-expression, drawing on ancient traditions and incorporating your own improvisations.
Open up to new possibilities physically, mentally, and emotionally with a fresh way to combine exercise and personal creativity.
Dance to the beat of your own drum in a supportive community that will celebrate your unique expression.
