Belly Dance ITS Vocabulary Level 1 with Sami Te

Sat 1/27, 11:30 am-6 pm. Exciting Announcement for 2018. January 27 and 28th, BellyArtist Studio in Ocala, FL will be hosting a Level 1 ITS (Improv Tribal Style) Full Vocabulary with Sami Te (see www.samiterocks.com). That is 10 hours of instruction split up into two days right here in your own backyard. After this workshop you will be able to Improv with your friends anytime, anywhere. So, start saving now for your $200 ticket to a whole new world of dance. What is ITS? Improvisational Tribal Style (ITS) belly dance, or ITS, is a combination-based form of Improvisational Tribal Fusion dance. It relies on a shared vocabulary of movements, each initiated by a distinct cue movement. The leader initiates the cue movement, then a short, choreographed combination, or Combo, is performed. These Combos can be done in any order, and none of the dancers know ahead of time what moves the leader will cue next. No prior bellydance experience is required for this work ...
