Xaeda is a passionate performer who loves diversity of movement and expression.Her devotion to Classical, Contemporary and Tribal Fusion Style Belly Dance has allowed her to travel the county to perform and teach at festivals and all kinds of events including Intertwine, Newcastle Bellydance Festival, WAMED, SydMedFest, Transcendence and so many more. One of her most cherished dance moments was being invited to perform with Helm during their Australian visit in 2016. Recently relocating to Brisbane from Coffs Harbour, Xaeda is looking forward to new and creative dance opportunities.
The definition of an “Arabesque” can take many forms.
1. An artistic terminology for flowing lines. 2. a piece of music which is brief but upbeat. Or perhaps 3. A dance movement of grace and beauty that appears to define gravity, gliding effortlessly across the stage collecting yards of silken colour and captivating the soul.
Xaeda will assist in developing your turns, travelling steps and creating fluid movements to enhance your arabesque.
This is a combination workshop – towards the end you have the option of adding a flowing skirt and a veil if you wish to enhance the lesson. Please bring foot wear suitable for turning.
