With Dawn Xiana Moon of Raks Geek

Limited to 15 students

Anyone can move their arms around onstage. But what changes a gesture from a meaningless, mechanical

motion into a compelling story? Why is the same choreography so fascinating on one dancer, but boring on another of equal technical skill? What separates mediocre performers from great ones?

Learn how to appear larger than life and connect with an audience, changing them from strangers into friends (or minions who will do exactly what you want them to). Learn how to express authentic emotion rather than simply pasting on facial expressions. And learn how to tell stories without using words. Dawn Xiana Moon has over 25 years of formal theatre training and performing experience; we'll apply acting techniques directly to dance, and you'll leave with concrete ways to blow your audience's minds.

** Basic knowledge of bellydance movements (any style) required. Minimum of 6 students registered by Feb. 4th required to run this special workshop. **
