Elements Bellydance Workshop
Safe, beautiful introduction to Bellydance in a Two-Hour Workshop. Movements attuned to the Elements of Earth, Air, Fire and Water. For all fitness levels. Fun, relaxing, and great exercise!! Great for Yoga Studios, Rec Center, Special Parties, Events, or for any venue that would like to try out bellydance and have fun!
Ballet for Bellydancers Workshop
Ballet is not just for children, and not just for ballerinas, either! Ballet's combination of grace, discipline, good posture and attention to detail can benefit anyone. In this workshop Elianae offers her expertise in both ballet and bellydance, and shows how great alignment, attention to arm carriage, posture and details such as foot point and smooth transitions can benefit bellydancers in all styles. Pertinent Ballet terminology will be covered, as well as modified barre, centre work and combinations. Music recommendations for home practice or performance can be offered additionally.
Mindful Movement - Bellydance/Yoga Fusion
This class is great for beginners to both bellydance and yoga, and is created to help you relax, feel centered, and move with intention and mindfulness. The dance portion of class will focus on the smooth, slower, more meditative movements of bellydance - circles, undulations, waves and figure eights set to relaxing meditative world music.
Compliment the dancing with a gentle yoga practice (no experience required) to help center and ground body and mind, stretch, breathe, and offer complete relaxation. Flowing through poses for every body, we cumulate with a meditation including aromatherapy.
Lavish Layers in Bellydance
What are layers? Would you like to get better at at layering? Learn how to make your midsection roll and undulate on top of hipwork, footwork and arm patterns! This class introduces you to the concept of layering, and is a great class for all levels. Elianae’s teaching style adds layers piece by piece, focusing on one before another is added, so that dancers from beginner to more intermediate can practice layering at their comfort level. Time will be taken to drill and enjoy learning these fun “puzzle pieces” that with practice, will make you a smoother, more nuanced dancer. Learn how an accent on top of a bellydance basic move can give your dance a whole new flavor!
