CHOREOGRAPHY focuses on the craft of designing sequences of movement where form and motion are clearly specified.

Moria is known worldwide for her solos, duets, ensemble pieces, and full-length shows that beautifully demonstrate this understanding of how to design sequences of movement into captivating stage performances.

These Tribal Fusion pieces are infused with the juxtaposition of staccato and fluid, etheric and weighty, sacred and profane.

Through the powerful alchemy of ancient and nouveau which incorporates Oriental and Tribal Fusion artistry, the goal is to produce a vibrant tableaux of light and dark, soft and strong, fiery and temperate to pull each dancer to her edge and offer what she embodies most on the stage.

Bringing this expertise to the classroom, Moria demonstrates how to create choreographies that are memorable and exciting using classic modalities for entering and exiting the stage, maintaining a dominant position while on stage, and

creating drama by utilizing proven techniques for drawing the gaze of the audience onto the geometric shapes a dancer creates with the outline and substance of her body.

CHOREOGRAPY is designed to help you create works of art that are elegant, exciting, and powerfully expressed in your stage performances, videos, and photoshoots.

Moria's CHOREOGRAPHY workshop is primarily experiential and movement oriented.  To illustrate the how-to of creating great choreographies, the workshop includes an image-rich PowerPoint presentation that demonstrates dance's sequences of movement.
