(Also look at www.tjarda.nu)
A special 10-hour intensive by Tjarda for just 11 people to delve into your own creative process and growth, starting with and within you! We will focus on intention, staging,
creativity, choreography, expressivity, movement qualities, technique, 3D movement and YOU.
You will approach this intensive with the tools to become more aware of what is already inside you, connecting body and mind to clarify your choices and bring the best out of yourself for your dance. With this small group there will be room for personal attention and we will be able to learn from each other by discussing, observing and analyzing to gain more insight in our own dancing.
This intensive is geared towards open minded intermediate and advanced fusion belly dancers of any style. During the intensive dancers are invited to stay true to their own style. Tjarda will not be teaching choreography or combinations. We will work on your own personal style to ignite the unique dancer that you are.
