ARCHETYPES IN THE DANCER is a highly visual and interactive presentation that explores the Great Mother Archetype and demonstrates how she uses her mercurial partner-in-crime, Trickster, to form this world.
Taught in a PowerPoint forum utilizing both discussion and movement, Archetypes in the Dancer offers various ways to explore the psyche in order to increase awareness
Teachers 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.
Hour One: Lower Body Emphasis Sharp and staccato articulation will emphasize movement and rhythm. We will drill twists and pelvic locks in order to develop the
muscles in the lower abs and pelvic area to create crisp, strong hip articulation. You will learn movement across the floor and around the room as well as a variety of drills to increase
flexibility and range of motion in the hips while maintaining a strong posture and arms.
Hour Two: Upper Body Emphasis Round and smooth articulation will emphasize shape and fluidity with upper body extensions and articulations. Drills will be repeated to sharpen and intensify chest ticks and locks while maintaining perfect arm and shoulder placement. Arms, undulations and laybacks will also be drilled, as well as the art of creating unusual shapes with the body.
Hour Three: Level Changes Backbends, knee-slides, floor spins and drops are the core movements associated with floorwork. In addition to learning these basics, you will also learn how to execute smooth transitions down to and up from the floor.
DEVELOPING A THEME suggests ways for teachers to help students design a compelling performance piece from the first shimmy to the final bow.
Thematic considerations may include the performance’s musical score; its dance style (for example Polynesian fusion versus Odissi fusion); the palette of movements available for that style; colors, tones, and textures for costuming; the development of thematically rich jewelry, the possibility of using theme-enhancing props; and discuss when live accompaniment can make a significant contribution to a theme.
Moria shares insights on dynamic elements that help support an overarching theme — a theme suggested by the title of a festival or an Intensive, a musical review, or a segment of a larger choreography.
SLOW & STRONG uses multiple fusion combinations to focus on steady and smooth transition techniques for complete body fluidity. In this portion of the instruction, teachers will learn the power of smooth, slow movements through a variety of shapes and poses.
Dancing slowly has its own principles and ideology, which emphasizes extended muscle contraction and flexibility to create big, serpentine combinations poured through with an intensity of flow. As we focus on the muscles between the muscles, and through a variety of shapes and poses inspired by Indian temple dance while using backbends and level changes, our class will culminate in a slow Tribal Fusion choreography.
In TRIBAL FUSION CHOREOGRAPHY (WITH BIG Skirt) Moria will instruct dancers on how to fill the audience with extra excitement by adding "big-skirt" moves to their Tribal Fusion choreography.
The music will be a fast-paced and festive Balkan Fusion musical score created by August Hoerr.
MATANGI CHOREOGRAPHY is a blend of Tribal Fusion and Odissi Fusion choreography. This unique class offers the dancers a way to infuse her personal dance with two of today's most exciting dance styles.
