MORIA'S WORKSHOPS

TRIBAL FUSION DRUM SOLO

Saturday  July 14  9:00 am ~ 11 am

The rhythm is in your blood.”

~African Proverb

 

 

 

 

TRIBAL FUSION DRUM SOLO offers a unique take on percussion and rhythm.

In this innovative class you will learn to play  music through your muscles using Tribal Fusion’s signature locks, breaks, fluid arms, shapes, and combinations as well as Moria's Muscular Belly Dance TechniqueTM (MBDT) for layering, traveling, and transitioning.

 

This exciting and fun workshop culminates in a Tribal Fusion drum solo choreography that you can continue to drill in your studio or perform immediately.

 

All levels are welcome.

ARCHETYPES IN THE DANCER

Saturday  July 14  1:30 pm ~ 3:30 pm

“The function of the image-symbol in the psyche is always to produce a compelling effect on consciousness.”

~Erich Neumann

ARCHETYPES IN THE DANCER is an interactive workshop and PowerPoint presentation that explores the Great Mother Archetype and demonstrates how she uses her mercurial partner-in-crime, Trickster, to form this world.

You will learn why image is everything, and how once activated, these archetypes enhance your creativity, choreography, costuming, and your ability to bridge the gap between you and your audience.

 

By learning the secret of how archetypes rise from inside your body and transmit themselves non-verbally, you will also learn how to make an audience automatically feel every chill and thrill activated by you.

 

Presented in a forum that combines discussion with movement, Archetypes in the Dancer offers various ways to explore the psyche in order to create a more powerful stage presence and receive a stronger emotional reaction from your audience.

TEMPLE DANCE FUSION

Sunday  July 15  12:30 pm ~ 2:30 pm

 

TEMPLE DANCE FUSION incorporates sacred temple and royal court dances from ancient India, Java, Cambodia, China, and Hawaii.

 

Over the course of the past decade, Moria has traveled to these countries to learn from dance instructors who have kept the secrets and techniques of their

traditions alive as part of a chain of knowledge handed down across thousands of years.

 

The intricacies of these dances, layered and blended with Tribal Fusion belly dance techniques, produce a beautiful tableaux of what is most inspiring and captivating from these cultures including dance styles, unique props, costuming, jewelry, makeup, and hair design.

 

When working with Moria, you will receive authentic information from primary sources.

 

Her instructors treasure their sacred temple and royal court dances and wish to impart them to serious and devoted students of their ancient and beloved cultural heritage.
