"Stage Magick" Theatrical Belly Dance Workshop with Moonhoar
April 11th, 2-4pm Central Time (US)
"Stage Magick" Theatrical Belly Dance Workshop with Moonhoar
Part lecture, part dance. In this workshop, we will discuss how to create a theatrical dance performance that leaves our audience spellbound. These tools can be used with any dance, with improvisation or choreography. After the discussion, we will work with a section of Moonhoar's choreography based on Anne Rice's Mother of Vampires, Akasha (the Queen of the Damned). In this theatrical choreography we will get a feel for commanding the stage, character development, expression, using imagery, and decorating movement with one's personal flourishes. Moonhoar's lecture notes will be available for download. Please bring a pen and notebook to jot down any ideas you might have.
Purchase now to receive the Zoom link for the live class. After the event, video recordings will be sent!
