Be Beautiful, Be Yourself: Mindful Eating and Befriending Our Bellies

Mindful Eating

Develop a fresh perspective on your relationship to food, your body and your own beautiful self using mindfulness and dance practices to enjoy your life even more in 2016.

We will talk about what it means to eat mindfully, and how to accept and embrace all parts of ourselves, even those parts that don’t want to eat mindfully! We will also enjoy a mindful eating practice - which will include some delicious local chocolates. After that, Rachel will lead some gentle, heart-centered belly dance movements to support the befriending of our bodies and our bellies.

No belly dance, meditation or yoga experience is required and all levels are welcome. Experienced dancers and yogis are welcome to deepen and enrich their practice.

Join us for a light, fun evening to rejuvenate the body, spirit and our sense of beauty. We’ll let go through laughter, shimmies and sisterhood!


Annie Mahon is an author, ordained Buddhist mindfulness teacher and founder of the Circle Yoga Cooperative in Washington, D.C.

Her blog, rawmindfulness.com, is a hit with the mindfulness and yoga community and led to a book of Annie’s collected essays, Words to be With.

Annie’s newest book, Things I Did When I was Hangry (Parallax Press, September 2015), documents Annie’s search for sanity in her eating disordered family life, and reveals how mindfulness helped her go beyond the search for perfection and learn to love the moment as it is.

Awesome Arms

Alyssum

Arms frame the belly dancer. They direct the audience’s attention and accentuate the rest of our dance.

In this class, Alyssum will introduce Persian Miniature framing, philosophy on how/where and why certain arm positions work better (or worse) than others, and guide you through drills and several frameworks of dancing with lovely arms. Shoulder shimmies will also be addressed.

Alyssum Pohl completed a four-month solo kayak journey down the Mississippi River last summer/fall. Her arms are more buff than they’ve ever been! Luckily, you don’t have to paddle thousands of miles to achieve elegant and beautiful armwork in your dance!

This class is best for the intermediate dancer. Beginner students who want to challenge themselves are welcome, and advanced students curious about Persian Miniatures and reviewing arm positions are also welcome.

Shining Bright on Stage! Stage Presence and Projection for All Types of Performers

Na'la

We’ve all heard our teacher say “Project to the back or the theater!” but what does that mean? How do we do it and how can we practice it? How can we connect with the audience if we can’t even see them?

Whether you are in a group performance piece, a duet or a solo, or whether you are presenting a theatrical belly dance piece, tribal or Raq Sharqi piece, having stage presence will help you shine bright on whatever stage you are on!

In this workshop for all types of performers, from beginner to intermediate, we will dive deep into creative waters and enter a world of connection, expression and creativity - all the things necessary to achieve what we want to bring to the stage…flow, confidence, playfulness, feeling connected to our bodies, the music, each other and the audience.

Be prepared to challenge your mind, emotions, and ego! Bring your troupe mates and classmates for an extra special bonding and learning experience!

Relax, Renew, Restore

Na'la

This workshop is all about melting tension in the body like melting the winter ice to make way for spring. It will be a time to breathe into those tight places on the body, and letting go of any residual winter tension in the shoulders and hips.

Na’la will use mellow music, relaxing visualizations, and the laws of gravity (please bring a yoga mat) to help create a restorative atmosphere.

We’ll take it slow… calming the mind… listening for any messages from the body as we take the time to explore it.

We will be lying down for most of this workshop, so do bring/wear whatever makes you comfortable. From the floor we will stretch the big muscles of our powerful legs, as well as the muscles of the hip (always a treat for belly dancers) and the upper back.

We will also look into some simple yet effective stabilizing techniques, so that when we’re done, our legs, pelvis and shoulders will feel ready for life again. We will finish with a moving mediation to align our body/mind system, and to integrate all our good work. Ideally we will all leave refreshed and ready for the week ahead!

Open to all levels!

Contemporary Khaleegy

Jingling bangles, bouncing bums, flowing arms, and of course flying hair!

All levels welcome. Please bring a thobe or veil/flowy skirt and bangles!

Intro to Turkish Rom

Eugenia

The nomadic Romany or Roma people (sometimes referred to by the slur “gypsy”) dance a vibrant style filled with gestures, pelvic movements, and complicated footwork.

While punctuated by lots of hops, hand gestures, and belly work, Turkish Rom is a relaxed social dance without the isolations seen in most belly dance.

This style is danced mostly to unusual rhythms in 9/8 time signature, known as Karsilama and Agir Roman.

The Roma are one of the most oppressed ethnic groups in Europe, and their dance often tells their story.

Learn the movements, gestures, and context of this exciting dance form to music that is sure to move you!

Open to all levels.

Character Sketch Room

Character (Khalima)

Have you ever wanted to be a dancing creature, something from nature, or embody something completely new? This class is all about bringing fantasy to life, through movement, facial expression, makeup, music, and props.

While this class will include some movement exploration, it will focus on sketching out your fantastical ideas, and how to include belly dance in your ideas with integrity and a reference to source where appropriate.

Students will leave with a working character profile, and paper materials to continue development.

This workshop is appropriate for all levels.

Date(s): Saturday, April 23

Time(s): 1:30-3:30 pm

Teacher(s): Khalima

Location: Sahara Dance Central

Cost: $35

Unconventional Costuming

Costuming (Khalima)

Develop your eye for building costuming with items and fabrics that can be found anywhere! We will learn to begin looking at clothing and jewelry items with the intention of creating something completely different from what the item was previously, and decide how to morph these pieces into sturdy, beautiful costuming worthy of the stage, and to embody any character.

It is not about how to cut corners, but rather how to transform something old into something new, and how to do it with style, individual expression, and sturdiness.

This workshop is an ideal continuation of the Character Sketch Room workshop, and also a complete stand-alone workshop. If you are taking Character Sketch Room, please feel free to bring items relating to a character you are building!

Students should bring a well-fitting bra, fabric, clothing, jewelry, and/or any other items that you think are beautiful, along with matching thread and needles. Select materials will be available for sale. This workshop is appropriate for all levels.

Journey Through Egypt Intensive / Certification
with Sahra Saeeda

Journey through Egypt, with Sahra Saeeda

Sahara Dance is pleased to host Sahra Saeeda’s Journey through Egypt Workshop Intensive / Certification Series!

Journey through Egypt (JtE) is a structured series of intensive workshops, providing an in-depth look at the various dance zones of Egypt. Each “Intensive” views Egypt’s Folkloric dance from a different perspective.

JtE-1 and JtE-2 are held in studios, classrooms and reception halls worldwide.

JtE-1 (Intensive/Certification 20-hr Workshop) draws upon films, lecture, study materials, map, and dance instruction. JtE-1 introduces the students to the wide variety of dance styles in Egypt with an overview of movement, costume, historical diffusion, and geographical location.

JtE-2 (Intensive/Certification 20-hr Workshop) provides an advanced overview, including the basis for future research, student specialization, dance ethnology concepts. Students investigate the dance differences between “home-style,” local professional dance, regional government troupes, Cairo-based Reda and Kowmeyya national troupes, and folkloric representation in night club shows.

Learn about the Dance of Egypt from a deeper perspective.
If you are not just a tourist, if you are hungry to understand,
if you don’t want to simply learn another choreography,
this may be the start of your journey.

Using dance ethnology concepts and a multi-media/experiential approach, Sahra C. Kent presents each region’s story of culture and dance, historical diffusion, costume and dress, posture and movement.

All intensives include a certificate upon completion. Certification is awarded to only those who complete all 20 hours of each course (40 hours total).
