Queens of the Universe: Workshop and Show with Lisa

  • Colonial Heights Recreation Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Lisa will be teaching “Angles, Shapes, and Formations in ATS®” for this annual event hosted by Queens of the Universe in Richmond, VA. This workshop begins with moves that look better when you are minding your angles and body position and progresses to discussing steps that make shapes and how visioning those shapes can improve your troupe’s synchronicity. Finally, we will review the main formations of ATS ® and how the angles and shapes combine with these formations to make magic. Lisa will also teach you Dayanisma’s signature “Dynamic Duet” formation, including how to cue it in improv!

Conditioning for Bellydancers with Margaret

Conditioning for Bellydancers with Margaret

This conditioning class will help us build strength, endurance, and balance in our bodies and our dance while reducing the risk of injury. In each class, we will use yoga and Pilates exercises to build strength and flexibility. We will then drill basic dance moves (any style) to connect these exercises to our own dance practice, while strengthening muscle engagement and improving alignment. We will finish with a brief High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) session to improve endurance.

As a general conditioning class, it is appropriate for all levels and all styles of dance (and also the non-dancer). Low and high impact options will be offered.

Please wear comfortable stretchy clothes, supportive exercise shoes (with clean soles to protect our dance floor!), and bring a yoga mat or blocks if you have them. Let’s sweat a little and have a lot of fun!

Fee: $13 by November 4; $15 after

ATS® Reunion: Creating a Welcoming Community with Lisa

Lisa is a juried instructor for 2020 ATS® Reunion in Phoenix, AZ

There are social, ethical and business reasons for examining how welcoming your dance community (or troupe, or studio) is to minority consumers including people of different race/culture/ethnicity, perceived socioeconomic status, sexual orientation and gender identity, disabilities, size and age.  In this workshop you will learn about hidden bias and ways to counteract it, how to use the stereotype inoculation model and other strategies to welcome diverse people into your community, and concrete strategies about the use of language and images to encourage diversity.

ATS® Combos for Improv and Choreo Workshop with Lisa

ATS® Combos for Improv and Choreo Workshop with Lisa

ATS® is a strictly improv form of dance; however, when some steps are combined in the same order, they create a particularly beautiful mix of shapes and flow of energy. In this workshop Lisa will teach short combos that will make your slow more compelling and your fast more exciting. These combos are created by putting ATS® moves together in ways that are strategic and sometimes difficult.

This workshop is ideal for ATS® dancers who want to level up their performance. However, dancers who are not familiar with ATS® but pick up steps quickly could integrate these combos into choreography or use them for improv in different types of belly dance.

Fee: $40 by Oct. 16; $45 after
