Dance as Art
Inspired by modern bellydance, this workshop will focus on expressive lines and percussive movement as a means of embodying music. We will combine fluid moves with precise isolations and explore concepts of movement and breath. Using powerful and graceful combinations (that draw from Sian’s own dance repertoire and the movement vocabulary of ATS®) we will dance as a tribe while exploring this vibrant and captivating dance style. This workshop will be the perfect way to start the day and connect with your body before hitting the dancefloor.
