This belly dance workshop explores the art of relaxed and controlled shimmies and dramatic shimmy layering. During part one, Tamalyn will teach how to shimmy at different speeds, how to slow down and control shimmies, and how changing the distribution of your weight can prepare you for shimmy layers. During the second part shimmies are layered onto slow movements including hip slides, circles, undulations, and figure 8s.
Belly Dance is an art with many nuances and complexities. In this workshop, Tamalyn explores three fundamental concepts: isolations, integration and layering that are keys to elegant and expressive belly dancing. Tamalyn breaks down fundamental isolations and demonstrates how to integrate isolated movements to allow them to radiate throughout the body. Basic layering is explored and used to demonstrate how layers can be used in isolation and integration to vary your dance. You will also learn the difference between these three concepts, which is fundamental in understanding Arabic vs. American or western styles.
This belly dance workshop will show how to get big, juicy, relaxed movements by focusing on the energy of the earth and working through your feet. We begin by allowing our basic hip and chest moves to spill over our feet, which drive the movement. Those movements will become a combination.
This Egyptian inspired American Cabaret Choreography showcases some of Henna's favorite Raks Sharki movement: fluid traveling steps, juicy hip work, musical combinations, and dramatic accents.

This piece moves through a few different rhythm changes, so listen close!
In this class we add texture to three classic belly dance moves by incorporating the psoas muscle. Break downs of the hip circle, the jewel, and the camel are demonstrated with and without the psoas, then drilled individually. We put them all together in a short sequence to hone in on that feeling of internal fluidity often seen in Egyptian style belly dance. This spotlight is from Henna's "Classic Egyptian #2: Technique Workshop".
