MYSTICAL BELLY DANCE INTENSIVES

What is the mystical aspect of this belly dance workshop?

MudraDance expression is an ancient art and through conscious movement and invocation, you can awaken the Divine feminine within.  Belly dance is a language of sacred symbols and a dynamic method to experience the energies of the Universe. Tantric theory on the chakras, including meditations and visualizations are incorporated to go deeper into the mysteries of this dance.   The approach to the course is unique and holistic – from the secrets of energy work, to the role of dance in female rites of passage and healing, to embracing fully your feminine potential -- it is all here for you.

 

What is the dance part of the workshop like?

Groovy Temple Dancers

 

The course breaks down the basic movements and isolations of belly dance and expands on this through combinations and full choreographed routines. Some highlights include learning veil and drum solo technique, dancing with light, north African trance and blessing dance, Bollywood-Bellydance, Egyptian cabaret, and temple dance.  Beautiful rituals and invocations, modern fusion, and group improvisation are other favorites that are covered.
