Many of us practice, Yoga, Qigong and other directional life force energy system movement based physical practices. Many of these beautiful, poses, postures and movement gestures from these systems working through the Meridians, the Chakric system, Reflexology can easily over lap and marry the movement of Egyptian dance.
In this 5 day intensive we will be exploring these connections and creating our own energy dance.
Combinations of movements in Egyptian dance give us a connection to Free Breath, Power, Grace, Peace, Stillness, Flow, Vitality, Ease, Dynamism, Kinesthetic Sense, Somatic Awareness and equilibrium. We are connected to Heaven and Earth and the Masculine and Feminine.
How can we feel and experience the sacredness and spirituality of our dance through this union or through the recognition of what is and has been present in the dance for 1000’s of years?
How can we make this presence more conscious in our dance?
The 2017 Embodied Bellydance Summer Intensive will explore just this.
During the 5 days we will consider the marriage of Energy Movement Systems to Egyptian Dance and feel the depth of what is created. Through this journey each person will create and document their own personal self perpetuated energy dance. We will work with traditional and non traditional to create our personal and community dances. This self perpetuated choreography will eventually culminate as a performance piece.
All Level of ability and dance genera welcome!

I have had many talks with colleagues on how precarious it is for us who are sole traders, service providers, artists, healers who share our talents and gifts. We, at times feel frustrated, anxious and perplexed when people can not commit to attending an event until the last minute. We understand that we live in a world that moves very quickly and that we are bombarded by so many activities and offerings, but surely if ones heart says that it wants to attend an event, then one would act on it within the time requested. Does this mean we do not hear the heart speaking or is the heart waiting for a better offer? Maybe there are cash flow problems. Maybe it is hard to understand how it feels for we facilitators, when we don’t know who is and is not coming, so we can act accordingly. Maybe this in it self helps us to cultivate trust and faith – all will be as it is. At times the is, is that we are left with the rent to pay, hours and hours of admin and a love of our work that keeps us going. I need nothing less than participants who’s hearts want to be a part of my work. That is why I offer a payment plan and scholarships, so those who need time to pay or don’t have enough cash flow can join.
So here is my COMMITMENT INCENTIVE – Anyone who has paid in full by the 10th December will receive a free 1 hour Skype session with me, before or after the Intensive. (to be used before 31st March 2017)
You don’t have Skype? We can work it out.
Let me know if you want to be a part of this. I wish to conclude by expressing boundless gratitude to the people who do alway pay by the due date. Your actions give me moments of peace and grace that give my spirit more space to weave the dreaming around the work.
Join me on this 5 day journey of revelation and transformation. Returning always to the essence beauty and form of Egyptian dance and all that it has to offer, to all genre a dance and movement. Weather you are professional or have no dance experience. I work in a way that give everyone what then need.
