 August 24, 1-3pm at the LaVista Community Center.  $50.00

 

This is the option where you register for the full workshop, including you sending me a song and me mapping out part of your song for you. Please see details below. To Map your music for a choreo, I need your song of choice emailed to me at elianaethebellydancer@gmail.com. It can be in Mp3 format, or Youtube or Spotify. Please no Apple iTunes. Please send music to me no later than Monday, August 5th so I have time to work with everyone’s songs before the workshop.

 

Have you always wanted to create your own solo or group dance, or maybe you have choreographed before but find it difficult, and would like some pointers? This workshop is for you! Part tips and tricks I have learned in my over 20 years of bellydance, part semi-private lesson, this workshop will both give you a framework to choreograph in the future and a jumpstart on a choreo RIGHT NOW. 

 

This class is very limited in size, as I will be giving each of you personal attention. In the first part of the class, I will share with you my “mapping music” technique”, which works for both soloist pieces and group/troupe pieces. I will discuss common barriers to choreography and how to overcome them, and how to spot musical patterns, nuance, and emotion, and how to incorporate this into your choreo. 

 

In the second part of this workshop, I will literally map out the first minute of YOUR song for you, giving suggestions and feedback on the mood, dynamic, and possible moves or combos that you could use to make this piece your own! 
 

Option 1 - participant -  I will be mapping 1 minute of your song, and as a group we will learn combos and ideas that you can use to create your choreo (recommended choice to get the most out of this workshop - only 5 spots available) Cost: $50.00

 

What this workshop is NOT: I will NOT be choreographing entire dances for all performers. I will be spending 15 minutes per dancer in a group setting talking about their piece (for option 1 dancers), and showing how it can be mapped, with examples of moves and combos that you can use. ALL will learn from this experience. 

 

What this IS for Option 1: this is an opportunity for you to take the first step with a piece of music you’ve been thinking about dancing to in a supportive environment. I will give you the tools and nudge to make choreographing your first solo or group piece MUCH easier. Plus, the dance will be 100% yours, and you’ll know how to choreograph again should you choose to! We have performance opportunities for your choreo in class, for our Halloween in-class parties (details soon), or even in our student Recital in December! 

 

What I need from You:
