Rewiring your brain to regain & strengthen your senses. Using movement situations as a segway to train the brain through techniques of problem solving, logic, memory & sustained attention. The implementation of Psychology/ Neuroscience allows not only for the optimization of the physical, but also the mental development- which go hand in hand

Artistic Development:
The Accumulation of the previous developments lays the ground work to help uniquely develop a solo and group creative signature. Unmasking or discovering new chains of movement, thinking and communication skills. Weekly tasks will be given to discover multiple avenues of creative potential.

Dance is an ever evolving organism. Within all disciplines it is apparent that over the years new styles emerge from older ones. One dance form in which this evolution is very clear is bellydance. Having its roots in the Middle East during the 17th and 18th centuries primarily in Egypt, Turkey and Lebanon. But it is believed to be much older. Throughout its history new styles of dance were born within the bellydance genre, for example one of the more recent being ATS (American Tribal Style Bellydance ) and Tribal Fusion Bellydance.

The latest edition in this evolution is the merging of Tribal Fusion Bellydance with Urban dance styles known as Urban Fusion Bellydance.

– An introductory course spread over five classes each delving into  combining bellydance with urban dance styles-

The classes will consist of beginner to intermediate bellydance techniques which will gradually level up during the course. On top of that we will layer on an urban dance form, by focusing on one discipline per class.

This course is for the belly dancer looking to add to their vocabulary or the mover/dancer looking for a new challenge.
