This workshop focuses on fundamental belly dance concepts in a fun, supportive environment, including posture, muscle isolations, and movement vocabulary that will be developed and used throughout all technical levels. Those with previous belly dance experience will benefit as we’ll work to refine and improve these fundamentals.

Dark Summer Choreography workshop with Badia Star
Let’s cut to the chase! Come an learn an original choreography by Badia Star in two evenings, with an option to perform the piece. This choreography will be rooted in the Classic Older Egyptian style that Badia is famous for, and the technique will be broken down and drilled as required. We’ll also focus on getting ready for performance, with tips from Badia to make this piece sparkle and shine.
All participants have the option of performing Badia’s piece in the Summer Sizzler Dark Salon, on Saturday, July 16, 2016 held at The Dark Side Studio. Please note, the performance is completely optional.
