I am so excited and honoured to bring back one of my favourite dancers to the Island: Ruby! She will be teaching some incredible workshop topics that apply to dancers of all styles and levels.

For those that don't know her, Ruby is internationally recognized for her passionate, untamed dance style. She is truly a powerhouse of energy. Her background of American Classic Bellydance and Turkish Oriental makes her performances stand out with a raw, individual interpretation. Her love of Turkish culture drew her straight to the source with multiple years of study in Istanbul.

Even more exciting is that she will be co-headlining a fabulous gala show on Saturday night with well-known fusion bellydancer Cera Byer from San Francisco, who is being hosted by Harmony Bellydance Co the same weekend! (workshops will not overlap if you are interested in both artists). It is a joint and connected weekend of dance with two internationally renowned artists that provides something for everyone!

Workshop details:

'Perfect Practice'
Friday 6-8pm
In this workshop Ruby shares her secrets on how to practice and stay motivated. Lots of exploratory exercises and clever tricks are presented to keep your practice hours fun and productive!

'Artful Entrance Choreography'
Saturday 10am-1pm
Get down with drama in this dynamic entrance choreography. This whirlwind routine is packed with drum solo bits, bursts of veil and a hint of floorwork!

'Explorations in Improvisation'
Sunday 1:30-3:30pm
Improvisation is at the heart of bellydance. This exploratory class will give you the tools to perform flawless improvisation on stage or in restaurant/clubs. Through staging technique, creative exercises and movement recall practices you’ll be improvising in no time.

'Tackling Transitions'

Transitions can be one of the trickiest aspects of polishing your performance. This workshop will help remove blocks and provide inspiration for you to creatively develop your own signature transitions! Come prepared to participate.
