Costume Café    

Saturday   April 25   9-11 am

Moria’s costuming is heralded as unique and innovative.


For the stage, the process of becoming a character, entering another realm, and understanding the rules and function of this world can be intimidating.


In COSTUME CAFÉ, you will learn the rules and then how to break them while maintaining the spirit of Tribal Fusion belly dance.

You will learn what works and what doesn’t for the stage; costuming’s short and long cuts, how to turn the usual into the extra-ordinary, and how to construct a masterpiece that is easy to take on and off. 


From initial inspiration to sewing the first stitch, selecting the fabric to fitting-the-mood, dancers will learn how and where to find the resources, as well as the techniques and ideas necessary to begin, continue, or rediscover your inner costume designer.


COSTUME CAFÉ shows the dancer practical ways to create a dramatic costume for a solo or an ensemble piece.


Please bring a pen and notebook and feel encouraged to bring your own costuming conundrums for question-and-answer.

Tribal Fusion Drum Solo

Sunday   April 26   9-11 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 Technique (MBDT) for layering, traveling, and transitioning.


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


All levels are welcome.

Stage Make-Up

Sunday   April 26   3-5 pm

Trained as a high fashion and bridal make-up artist, Moria combines facial composition and structuring, undertones and color-combination, contour and color-correction with her passion for theatrical character make-up.


In STAGE MAKE-UP you will learn the secrets of flawless stage make-up including water proofing, smoky

eyes, false-eyelash techniques, and amped-up lip and cheekbone enhancement.


Moria will review her favorite products, colors, and application techniques.


She will also demonstrate the best use and applicability of a myriad of make-up brushes, glitter types, and bindi glue.


Dancers are encouraged to bring their own make-up.
