In this workshop April Rose explores the intersection of belly dance with Classical Indian dance through 4 fusion phrases. The Classical Indian Odissi posture tribhangi is introduced as well as some footwork, or adavus, that extends from tribhangi. We will also drill modified versions of fundamental Tribal Fusion and belly dance techniques like the Egyptian, Arabic, ASWAT, Sharki Step, lower undulations, and 3/4 hip shimmies, embellishing these movements with Classical Indian arm carriage and hand mudras. We will use these core movements with traveling footwork to create spatial patterns on the dance floor. Lastly, we will cool down with a classical suranamaskar.
This workshop will introduce the basic components of Rajasthani folk dance such as: Posture, mudras (hand positions) and the basic foot pattern. We will take four dance movements, the "Basic Step", "Chedi Arm Variation", "Ghoomar Arm Variation", and the "Ghoomar Spin", that will introduce the student to movements of several folk styles from within Rajasthan. This workshop is perfect as a first introduction to Rajasthani dance, as well as for a dancer who wants to brush up on fundamental movements in this style. Suggested movement attire is a large spinning skirt and dancing barefoot is ideal for stomping out the foot pattern.
In part one of April Rose's "Marigold Garden", we will begin to learn the first half of an original choreography to the song "From India".

April Rose will chronologically break down the movements for each section of the dance, drill them to music, and then run through the choreography as it builds. We will move quickly through the dance and a warm up is recommended prior to beginning. Stay tuned for part 2, which completes the full choreography.
