Workshops & Instructors:

Annissa Spechko – Mind-Bending Drills (applicable to all styles of belly dance)
Suitable for intermediate to advanced dancers
After a quick SharQui warmup, you will be led through a series of drills that will connect a foot pattern with a torso movement. Then, if you’d like even more of a challenge, you can add an arm pattern! Be prepared to have your mind blown!!

Jim Anderson – Improving Your Flow (applicable to all styles of belly dance)
Suitable for all levels
With 18 years of dance experience, Jim will focus on presenting ideas to make dancing more enjoyable. He will focus mostly on improving your flow.

Sofiia Baranovska – Fiery Tango Fusion
Suitable for all levels
Sofiia recently joined the Regina dance community. She will be teaching a Fiery tango fusion choreography that is a surprising connection between gentle oriental movements and energetic and passionate tango fusion music. You can see a new perspective of belly-dancing and try the image of a temperamental woman dancing an incendiary interpretation of the tango.

Azura – Mood & Magic! (applicable to all styles; focus on performance skills, developing choreography & artistic direction)
Suitable for all levels
Do you want to look relaxed and confident while waiting to perform? Are you interested in evoking a mood or an idea through belly dance? Learn how to use breath and energy to connect with yourself, other dancers, and your audience. Go beyond looking nervous and uncomfortable to feeling playful and powerful. Practice expressing mood and concept to make magic!
