Elegant Flamenco Fusion Choreography
Inspired by her travels to Spain, Irina presents a dance that is a delicate fusion of both Flamenco and belly dance. This passionate piece incorporates intricate hip and torso work, while adding the distinct arm and foot patterns characteristic of the Spaniards. This piece, although could be danced solo, will utilize a bit of call-and-answer sections, perfect for groups who are used to dancing together, and the various combinations of the choreography could be easily incorporated into fusion pieces. If possible, please bring a long, wide skirt. Note: wearing some kind of dance shoes is advisable.
This workshop is focused on drills, combinations and some floor exercises designed to give you greater control over your abdominals and ribcage. We will start with a few basic Pilate's exercises and dance drills that will explore slow vs. staccato muscular contractions and finish with fun and challenging Fusion-style combinations that will incorporate detailed torso work (such as belly rolls and flutters) with traveling steps and exciting level changes.
