Performances and Workshops

2018 Workshops:

(Dec 2017 – Online Performance Intensive for Tulsa performance)

Feb 2, Tulsa, OK- Transitions: Turn That Technique Into a Melody
You’ve​ ​worked​ ​hard​ ​to​ ​make​ ​beautiful​ ​shapes​ ​and​ ​clean​ ​isolations.​ ​​ ​In​ ​this​ ​workshop​ ​we’ll explore​ ​how​ ​to​ ​string​ ​them​ ​together​ ​seamlessly.​ ​​ ​Transitions​ ​are​ ​the​ ​glue​ ​that​ ​holds​ ​our​ ​work together,​ ​but​ ​I​ ​believe​ ​the​ ​audience​ ​shouldn’t​ ​see​ ​the​ ​glue.

Feb 3, Tulsa, OK – Finger​ ​Cymbals​ ​Unlocked​ ​
Faelan​ ​loves​ ​finger​ ​cymbals​ ​and​ ​her​ ​gift​ ​in​ ​the​ ​classroom​ ​is​ ​the​ ​ability​ ​to​ ​break​ ​it​ ​down.​ ​​ ​Want to​ ​polish​ ​your​ ​cymbal​ ​skills?​ ​​ ​Feel​ ​like​ ​finger​ ​cymbals​ ​are​ ​just​ ​too​ ​hard?​ ​​ ​Afraid​ ​of​ ​them​ ​even? Perfected​ ​your​ ​3’s​ ​and​ ​looking​ ​for​ ​a​ ​new​ ​horizon?​ ​​ ​This​ ​class​ ​is​ ​for​ ​you!​ ​​ ​We​ ​will​ ​learn​ ​some​ ​fun belly​ ​dance​ ​combos,​ ​drill​ ​finger​ ​cymbal​ ​patterns​ ​and​ ​then​ ​layer​ ​them​ ​on​ ​top​ ​of​ ​our​ ​combos.

July 27, Rochester, NY – Fancy Footwork
What are your feet doing while you dance? From intention to fancy footwork, we’ll be sure to bring our dance to the next level from the ground up. We’ll also get some time to focus on balance, layers, and ways to move across the stage.

July 28, Rochester, NY – The Serpent’s Secret
Discover the inner workings of those beautiful, sophisticated serpentine movements that have become a favorite of Tribal Fusion belly dance. We’ll break down the mechanics of these isolations and then add the fluidity that gives the audience a magical experience of
strength and grace. We’ll also talk about properly warming up the spine to prepare for these strong movements.

2019 Workshops:

April 5, Requiem: Dark Fusion Festival Fresno, CA – Betrayal: A Choreography
This is a dark and intense choreography, with plenty of emotive expression and technique.  While the movements may seem uncomplicated, we will infuse them with slow power and broken hearts.  There will be a complete warm up and cool down, as well as a small amount of discussion and journaling to infuse our dance with experience.
