Advanced Layering & Shimmy Techniques




ADVANCED LAYERING & SHIMMY TECHNIQUES is a workshop designed for the more experienced dancer who is looking to expand her movement vocabulary and push her ability to the max.



Topics include musicality in layering; playing different rhythms and tempos within different sections of the body to create orchestrated movement; layering shimmies with precision on virtually every part of the body; and footwork and patterns as part of the layering extravaganza!



ADVANCED LAYERING & SHIMMY TECHNIQUES puts together the various drills and traveling patterns previously learned in order to build control and stamina in layering.

Advanced drills will show you how to maintain deliciously crisp isolations while layering 2, 3, or 4 different components of the fundamental moves.



Some of the more advanced elements of this workshop include using turns, traveling, and layering movements to culminate in new, advanced combinations that we will work into a Tribal Fusion choreography.

The layering aspect of the workshop is intended to build from Moria’s Muscular Belly Dance Technique (MBDT) workshop.

Prior isolation training is helpful but all levels are welcome. 

Some experience in Tribal Fusion technique is required.
