Join us for an exciting opportunity to study with Tempest on Sunday October 20th at Taal School of Indian Art!
Tempest pulls from her visual arts background, literary tendencies, and global inspirations to create dance that crosses the boundaries of time and culture. One of the major pioneers of Fusion Bellydance, she strives to create and teach dance that maintains the essence of bellydance; balancing tradition, inspiration, and innovation. Her compellingly artful performances exemplify her distinctively theatrical, unique, and expressive style, and are rooted in oriental dance technique with a transcendent approach. Her costume designs have revolutionized the look of modern bellydance, and continue to inspire new and old generations of dancers alike. She is based in Seattle, WA and currently produces two major events: Waking Persephone & Tapestry Dance Retreat. www.darklydramatic.com

Musicality & ‘Motion
Essentially, the dancer is the music made manifest. When a dancer’s movements truly evoke visually for the audience the sound and feel of the music, something amazing has been achieved. In this workshop we will open our ears in order to see the music, identify it, translate it to our bodies, and apply emotional content effectively. We will make the connection beyond emoting and movement technique, where the expression is genuine and real for the audience. For all styles of bellydancers.
Mesmerize! Exquisite Arms & Captivating Hands
In this workshop, we will unlock Tempest’s secrets to having truly beautiful arms and expressive hands. Having amazing arms and hands is one of those vital elements to looking truly polished and professional. We will cover drills and exercises that will enable you to gain the most potential out of your arms, from shoulders to fingertips. We will also explore the variety of expression that can be found within the realm of bellydance: the “relaxed” feeling of folkloric arms, the strength and fluidity of tribal arms, the elegance and sensuality of oriental arms, as well as incorporating dramatic fusion elements. Find out what works best with your body type, style, and personality so that you too will possess arms and hands to frame and empower your dance!
$30 per workshop or $50 for both!
