Learn my favourite special effects and embellishments and how to add that otherworldly vibe to many of our well known foundational belly dance movements. We will cover when and how to incorporate them into a performance, so you can create that “memorable moment”, which is often what an audience remembers the most! Derived from experimental play in my studio, elements for ATS embellishments, as well as some hip hop influences, each effect will be broken down step by step. This includes exploring timing, precision and dynamism. While learning some combos and incorporating the effects and embellishments, we will also explore how the breath impacts and brings life to movement.
