The more you know, the more confidently you will express your unique “voice” in dance. Elizabeth draws from her extensive knowledge in Turkish Roman (“Gypsy”) style to give you a basis in the form. From this background, we learn a fusion choreography, integrating traditional folkloric movements with modern belly dance and jazz elements. This workshop is sure to broaden your repertoire and expand your knowledge of rhythm.
As always, it is a good idea to bring a notebook & pen to class so you can jot down the important concepts. Additionally, Las Vegas is a desert.

Yoga pants, tank tops/tee shirts, and quiet hip scarves are appropriate. Be prepared to have fun.
