The workshop Hilal dance: Return to roots brings us back to the power of nature and earth as the grounding for dance.
The powerful sound of the vibrant Nubian and Egyptian drums connect with the core and heart. These rhythms are full of vitality in a subtle and elegant way. The dances are based on solid and intricate footwork, which allows a natural flow of energy to develop from the feet to the spine and up to the neck and head. The body integrates all body parts harmoniously with strength and fluidity and it restores a sense of balance and inner vitality.
We will base the warming up on the powerful Hilal core breathing and Do In Yoga centering exercises to prepare for sensing the power of the grounding body and the earthing energy of the feet.
The workshop uses the Hilal Dance language system, which integrates Eastern and Western principles . It is the art-dance created by Suraya Hilal, which reflects the holistic nature of dance. Though related to the aesthetics of Arabo-Egyptian culture , Hilal dance expands through the use of a contemporary idiom.
The workshop is for all levels and backgrounds by Laura de Gaspari.
