Mardi Love has been around for some years now, influential in shaping the aesthetic of Tribal Fusion as it is known today. Mardi began dancing with The One and Only Heather Stants, director of the innovative Urban Tribal Dance Company, then partnered up with the illustrious Rachel Brice and later the notorious Zoe Jakes to enjoy a good run with The Indigo, touring extensively and producing their own damn show. Way to do it right.These days, Mardi is continuing to partner up with painfully charming and talented musicians and performers, and a new show is in the works.

Assuit and Tie: Thoughts and Methods in Costuming 6:00 - 8:00
Mardi has spent some years stitching up little numbers, and is up for shedding some light on her methods. Mardi will show how she backs a bra and discuss belt bases and design. We'll cover braiding and stringing coins and the roots of head dress making. Mardi will bring samples and provide demonstration. Students would do well to bring a notebook and pencil.

Saturday, April 26th 2014 $120

Slow Layers and Sentences 10:00 - 12:00
All that is slow, sinuous, undulating....Mardi's favorite. We'll take a couple hours working slow technique and employing said technique in sultry sentences of movement.

Traveling Movements and Combinations 1:00 - 3:00
While we prefer dancing in small spaces, we are sometimes presented with quite a large stage to use. In this class Mardi will present a few new combinations that will help you fill a stage. Movements will be carefully broken down and drilled.

Building a Dance For The Stage - Musicality, Look and Feel 10:30 - 11:30
Mardi and students will discuss and employ Mardi’s methods and habits of constructing a piece, from start to finish, We will look at the whole animal: music selection, choreography that demonstrates musicality, painting the mood, developing a look for the piece and finally nuance and dancing it from the heart.
New Combinations and Q&A with Ms Love
Straight-ahead and not-so-straight-ahead combinations on quicker tempos. We will also take some time for a lil Q&A....bring your inquiries.


“Mardi is a true visionary. Her dance style comes from her highly developed sense of aesthetics. I've never seen a mind like hers before, she can just pull ideas out of thin air. She's truly an original and does it all for the right reasons: to enjoy making things. She is incredibly shy and has a bit of a hard time with all the compliments and attention that come with being a performer.”

“What else can I say about Mardi? Hmmmmm. I admire her to no end. I've never met anyone who loves little chickens and little old lead toys so much, and she can make the most amazing lavender truffles I've ever had.”
