Transformational pre performance imagery, visualization and relaxation. Self consciousness and doubt have no place in this sacred performance space!
1:30-3:30pm- Shimmies Demystified & Deconstructed, The Jill Parker Method
Earthy, fluid, percussive Shimmies are a distinguishing feature of Tribal Fusion belly dance. Have you ever longed for a teacher to help you truly understand and achieve, the elusive yet intoxicating, perfectly timed shimmy? Lucky you, Jill is as infamous for her earthy and elegant shimmies as well as her patient & masterful teaching style! In this class you will participate in shimmy exercises designed to help regulate your timing and get rid of the glitch in your hips (and your mind). You will play with up tempo and down tempo shimmies, 3⁄4 & 4/4, layering and many other exciting new variations. Jill will help you achieve understanding and excellence!
