Laura Filipovic Presents:
A Weekend of Turkish Oriental Dance with Ruby
Four Amazing Workshops! ‘A Night In Istanbul’ Stage Show!
April 14 & 15, 2012
Ruby is one of the most innovative Turkish-style bellydancers taking the stage. Her passion for bellydance has taken her to Turkey where she intensively studied Romani (Gypsy) dance as well as Turkish Oriental and Folk dancing. She is widely recognized for a raw, untamed and passionate dance-style that is uniquely her own. Performing with power, grace and agility on stage, Ruby has won numerous titles, most notably that of Bellydancer USA in 2009.
In addition to being a multi-award winning performer, Ruby is featured in a line of instructional videos and performance DVDs. She is featured in the popular “By Dancers for Dancers” series, “Bellydance Power and Passion” performance DVD and “Combination Nation” instructional. She also stars in her own instructional series by Cheeky Girl Productions, which includes “Flawless Floorwork,” “Totally Turkish” and “All About Arms.”
When Ruby is not charming audiences worldwide, selling-out workshops or producing top-selling bellydance DVDs, she teaches weekly classes and performs in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Workshops with Ruby
Totally Turkish | Saturday, April 14; 10am-12pm
Turkish Oriental bellydance is fast, furious, and full of spunk. We’ll begin with a powerhouse warm up, saucy isolations, shimmies, hair tosses, spins, turns, footwork, then pull it all together with fun and fast combinations. Bring your zills and be ready for a workout, we’ll be movin’ fast!
Swifti Chifti | Saturday, April 14; 12:30pm-2:30pm
Get your Turkish style on with some fun, upbeat Chiftetelli combos and rhythm breakdown. We’ll be breaking down the Chiftetelli rhythm, and then exploring how to dance to its upbeat style with different props and a bit of structured improvisation. Bring zills (optional for more advanced dancers) and a chiffon veil (some available to borrow, contact Laura beforehand).
Vivacious Veil | Sunday, April 15; 11am-1pm
Expand yourself on stage and express the music with dynamic and dramatic veil transitions. Learn to use accents in the music to mystify your mechanics and make seamless sequences with your veil. Please bring both chiffon and silk 3 yard rectangular veils (some available to borrow, contact Laura beforehand).
Drum Solo Technique & Choreography | Sunday, April 15; 1:30pm-3:30pm
Learn techniques for developing sharp, clean isolations while exploring innovative and unique accents in this award winning drum solo choreography. Ruby will break down the movements in detail and then pull them back together in this fun and energetic drum solo!
