The Modern Belly Dancer
The modern belly dancer uses a variety of styles, Egyptian, Turkish and Tribal along with Fusions of Contemporary, Dance, Hip Hop, Latin styling and a wide variety of belly dance inspired hair flicks to create an eclectic, vibrant and energetic mix.
I will explore the importance of each styles rules that make the foundation of each style and then when to break them because the modern dancer doesn't limit herself and there are no boundaries in creating art.
I am always performing at many events from belly dance shows, TV, music festivals, concerts and award ceremonies to the Royal Albert Hall, and I will put all the must do's and don'ts when performing for an audience along with some body conditioning training I developed while teaching my VIP and celebrity clients belly dance into my workshops.
Whilst training as a dancer I also worked as a personal trainer gaining valuable key knowledge of the human body, I will be sharing my vast knowledge of anatomy and movement with you so that you can dance safer, correctly and beautifully.
We'll cover how to create your own belly dancers essential tool kit - develop cleaner sharper more precise isolations improving your belly dance technique.
Every dancer needs to know how to "turn". We will explore spins and turns that not only act as beautiful transitions between belly dance moves but also embellish a performance so it really completes the piece.
We will dive into a variety of spins and turns used by your favourite legendary belly dancers making sure we fine tune techniques to set you apart from other belly dancers.
We will learn about musicality and rhythms And how to dance to these rhythms to assist you in live improvisation and choreography.
I will teach and share with you my own signature style and teach you a new Melissa Style Medley Drum Solo Fusion choreography which I have created especially for you
and of course, we'll tie it all together with costuming, stage presence, glitter and makeup!!
These secrets I share in my workshops and lessons are what makes good dancers GREAT dancers.
