OCT 12-14: BAGOAS IN HAWAII!

OCT 12-14 WORKSHOP WEEKEND WITH BAGOAS!

OCT 14: SPECIAL PERFORMANCE BY BAGOAS AT ONG KING

Image may contain: 1 person

Sammie in Hawaii and MEDAH are excited to host visiting artist, Bagoas from Seattle, Washington! Bagoas will offer two workshops designed for dancers of all levels! The weekend concludes with a performance to remember as Bagoas brings down the house at the October Belly Dance Cafe on October 14th!

ABOUT BAGOAS:

Bagoas is an award winning tribal fusion belly dancer known for his musicality, lyricism, technical power, precision, dramatic presentations, overwhelming charisma and down to earth interaction with his audience. In 2010 he won the title of the Yellow Rose of Texas at Ya Halla Y’all in the Professional Tribal Alternative Men’s category. Since then, he has been published in Zaghareet magazine, What Weekly, and Belly Dance Japan, and has performed at oriental dance events along the East Coast including Rakkasah East, Belly Horror, River City Raqs, DC Tribal Café, and Seven Cities Tribal Cafe. He has also been a featured performer and workshop instructor at events such as the premiere Annapolis Fringe Festival, the Winter Festival of Wonders, TribalCon, Hard Raqs Festival, Cues and Tattoos, and the Super Fun Dance Camp retreat.

WORKSHOP TOPICS:

Friday – 6-9 PM: What Just Happened?!

Description: Bagoas will teach a high energy Tribal Fusion choreography brimming with musicality, muscular isolation and attitude that will leave your audience wondering “What just happened?!” A wide range of movement will be used including layering, traveling, popping and locking, ticking, arm patterns and turns. Student will leave with a full choreography that they can perform as a whole, or dissect into small combos to incorporate into their own choreographies.

Saturday – 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM: Breath and Shadow

Description: This workshop will break down the mechanics of the breath within the context of common belly dance isolations. Students will be coached through breathing exercises and techniques that can be used to develop phrasing and a broader range of movement options. These exercises will then be applied to short combos to help tie breath into movement. Bringing awareness to the breath allows dancers to increase their performance endurance, and to discover their potential slinkiness by adding that luscious, molasses-like aesthetic to choreographies and combos.

PRICING:

Early Bird Package (for both workshops BEFORE August 31):

Non-MEDAH/Non-College Student – $100
MEDAH Member or College Student – $80
Regular Package (for both workshops AFTER August 31):

PRECISION BELLYDANCE BOOT CAMP: DRUM SOLO CHOREOGRAPHY
September 8, 3-5 pm

Drum solos are some of the most dynamic and technically challenging pieces in the art of bellydance. They present a way for dancers to show exactly how precise they can be – nothing gets the hearts and hips pounding like a dynamic drum piece! Among her students, Sammie has a reputation for pushing dancers to improve via her challenging and dynamic choreographies. In this workshop, Sammie will challenge you to give emphasis to each and every beat of the drum. No “polite” hips here – we are going to sweat and embody that beat! Join us for a stimulating, shimmy-filled time, and take away a full piece that you can pull out anytime to impress family and friends!

IMPECCABLE IMPROVISATION IN BELLYDANCE
September 22, 3-5 pm

Improvisation. Some say “yay,” and some say “yikes!” There is no right or wrong way to feel about improvising – however, all agree that it is a fantastic skill to have for those inevitable moments when you go blank onstage (or at that random hafla drum circle). Whether you are new to the idea of improvisation, or whether you have been improvising for years, Sammie has a couple of tricks up her sleeve to get you more comfortable and looking poised on stage. Her trial and error is your benefit! Through a variety of exercises, you will learn to think on the spot, avoid “muddiness” in your movements, and gain comfort with your own unique style and default patterns. Get ready for a mentally stimulating workshop that will bring together everything you’ve learned so far about bellydance!
Samantha Giridhar

Sammie is an active member of the Hawaii Bellydance Community and the Middle Eastern Dance Artists of Hawaii (MEDAH).
