About the class - These classes are a safe and fun environment to discover a new dance format. Led by Robyn and Charlotte, you will learn how to execute the moves distinctive to the format while playing finger cymbals (zillar/sagat) and apply principles key to the format. You will be taught how to lead and follow cues to create unique dance improvisation. The classes are also a great opportunity to meet new people and enter into a whole new community of dancers around the world!



What to wear - Please wear a fitted top so that your movements can be clearly seen. We wear practice pants for class (fitted trousers with a bit of flare) so that you can see our feet. You can wear something similar, leggings or comfortable trousers that allow a lot of free movement and allow us to see your posture. We prefer to dance barefoot, but allow dance feet/shoes/sandals. Hip scarfs (non-jangley noisey ones) are a nice accent but optional!



What else to bring - Most importantly a positive attitude! Also a bottle of water and finger cymbals if you have them (we have some spare sets that we can loan for a small fee or sell on to you).

Before participating in your first session you will be asked to enroll with us and complete a Fitness to Dance form and a Learner Agreement. Click on the links to see copies of these. It is advised as always that you speak to a physician before taking up any new physical activities.

About Tribal Fusion - Tribal fusion is a contemporary form of belly dance rooted in American Tribal Style Belly Dance, incorporating elements from other dance forms such as ballet, flamenco, jazz and hip hop. Tribal fusion is a relatively young dance form and the nature of fusing a number of different styles results in a variety of representations. Robyn believes that there is a core of identifiable qualities in each representation of tribal fusion; a strong, open carriage and tensions of opposites through use of form and movement quality.

About the class - The sessions will be suitable for dancers of beginner to intermediate levels, with exercises that can be adapted for different skill levels and physical abilities. We will study posture, conditioning, movement isolations, undulations, arm patterns and foot work, putting them into combinations that can be used in your own choreography or as a basis to encourage combination creation.

 

What to bring - A bottle of water, yoga mat and any yoga props you may find useful

For the more advanced dancers there will be the opportunity to be invited to a further 2 hours of study for Robyn's performance project, Pavonix.
