MORNING SESSION with Mistress Ilea Bizarre
10:00am-11:45am
Just Cue It! 
Intro to Improvisational Tribal Style dance (ITS)
With Mistress Ilea Bizarre 

There is an undeniable magic that emerges from dance improvisation. It's the ability to interpret music as movement with passion and spontaneity, combined with a nonverbal communication and deep connection to the tribe you're dancing with that makes group improvisation a powerful dynamic to add to your dance repertoire. 

This class will include concepts, basic steps, cues, and combos designed to introduce group improvisational dance and have you on your way to creating and applying your own language of movement, giving the advantage of on the spot "choreography" to suit your practice and performance needs. Open to all levels with a basic foundation of fundamental belly dance movement.

LUNCH BREAK:
11:45am-12:15pm


Sword Session with Gwenda Bourgeois
12:15pm-2:00pm
YOU DO NOT NEED TO OWN A SWORD TO ATTEND
***YOU CAN BRING YOUR OWN SWORD OR
BORROW ONE FROM OUR SWORD GODDESS INSTRUCTOR, GWENDA****

Partner or Prop?  
Introduction to Dancing with a Sword
with Guest Instructor Gwenda
Reveal your inner warrior goddess with strong poses and controlled moves. Let the power of dancing with a sword infuse your bellydance with strength!

Balance. Grace. Harmony. Strength.
Sword technique and moves that will leave a lasting impression.
  
Increase your strength, poise, and posture while you and your shiny partner practice a series of steps, spins and combination,  level changes, poses and transitions, traveling moves, and balancing your sword on different areas of your body. 

This workshop is structured for dancers who have little or no experience of sword work, dancers who have some sword experience, but want to bring their sword to performance level, will also benefit from this workshop. 

Energy Healing Session with Karla Marie and Jessica Heno, LMT
2:00pm-3:30pm

* Bring two pillows, a yoga mat, a small throw or blanket/jacket as it tends to get cool during the healing.


*  Restorative poses | Essential Oil Therapy
*  Chakra Activation | Energy Clearing
*  Meditation & Visualization Exercises

In the Spring, it’s natural to think about what’s transpired in the beginning months and prepare to welcome positive new energy to support your intentions in the months ahead. 

I believe it is most important to bring awareness to what energy belongs to us and to allow this to flow within and be protected, while releasing all the energy that does not belong to us, releasing all those things that do not nourish us with forgiveness and compassion. 

This time will be dedicated to clearing our energy centers, the most important space in our life, to create our “ultimate sanctuary” within ourselves, activating positive intentions, opening our energy centers and sealing our energy for protection.

We will do this through the powerful healing available through dance and movement. We will start our workshop by connecting to our body and move through our energy centers, ending in a restorative therapeutic session.
