Turkish Drama: Music Interpretation & Stage Presence
OZGEN * 3hr INT/ADV
Sat Aug 11, 9a-12p
How you interpret the music you dance to has a big impact on your overall stage presence and how your dance speaks to the audience in front of you. In this workshop, you will learn how to add dramatic elements to your belly dance technique to improve your stage presence. Learn to interpret this complex music more intentionally so that you know what story you want to tell when you perform.
We will go over how to bring dramatic elements to your dance and how to interpret the music with intention, which will both add to your stage presence. We’ll put all these elements together and explore the depths of Turkish belly dance in an enriching, relaxed atmosphere.
