Intro to Fusion Belly Dance
Follow Shyama into the world of fusion belly dance for your fitness, fun, and performance goals! Learn to move and isolate your hips, arms, chest, and core in new ways, strengthening your muscles, improving flexibility, and raising your body confidence! We will first explore proper posture and technique of basic movements. The rest of our time will be dedicated to learning a section of fusion choreography!
Venture into the darkness with Shyama, Director and Founder of the Stygian Collective! In this workshop, we will blend traditional belly dance movements with metal music to showcase Shyama's signature style, Metal Fusion! Students will learn several combinations created with specific bands or genres in mind. Expect unique technique, drills, and layers, alongside a healthy serving of attitude, emotion, and a powerful surge of confidence!
Choreography Workshop Series (each of these choreographies are available now in my Online Studio!)
"Snuff" by Slipknot
Emotion is a tangled web, a path groped along in blinding darkness. Love isn’t simple, neither is hate. And the ending? The ending is never clear. Delve into the darker and deeper side of belly dance through metal fusion with Shyama’s unique choreography to “Snuff” by Slipknot. This dark fusion piece tells a story of love, betrayal, loss, and the struggle of letting go.
"Crawling" by Linkin Park
Where does the pain end and the person begin? Every loss leaves a wound and some wounds never heal. This dark-fusion reflection of belly dance was created in honor of Chester Bennington, and tells the painful tale of metal illness.
"Serenity" by Godsmack
Enjoy this "begintermediate" choreography that uses mostly beginner movements with a few more challenging combinations. It is a good start for a newer dancer to jump into choreography!
"Slapdash Era" by Beats Antique
This choreography focuses on Shyama's unique dark fusion technique, all wrapped up in slinky goodness!
