Technique & Stagecraft
AZIZA * 3hr, INT/ADV
Sun Aug 12, 9:30a-12:30p
In this class Aziza will share her deliberate practice and conditioning concepts. We will start with a thorough warm-up, transition to endurance and strengthening exercises, then move into traveling steps and rhythm specific combinations. Special focus will be concentrated on fluid transitions in the lifted Oriental style. The second half of the class Aziza will offer her approach to stagecraft, the art of inserting your personality in the transitions, how to use the stage to convey meaning, and how to be completely present in both choreography and improvisation. Aziza invites you to benefit from her 30 years of experience in this dance form with this complete overview of how she approaches practice and performance.
