I am so excited about my Movement Workshop tomorrow at 2pm PST - Details below and please share with your friends. This workshop is for all! The exercises will be especially helpful for musicians or those of us stuck on our computers a lot these days ( that’s me too!)
Movement for dancers & non-dancers: Awaken your body through simple stretching & movement exercises
**Thursday at 2pm PST
With Natalie Nayun
Let's explore our 3-dimensional bodies and get out of the stagnation that has been brought about by current times. We will warm up our whole bodies with special attention focused on stretching & strengthening the hands & shoulders, we will then move into some simple body awareness & improvisational exercises. If time allows we will explore simple movement phrases based in Central Asian movement vocabulary.
Brianna’s Tune: Saalouni el nas (Fairuz)
Rhythm: Bayati - Arabic Tuning: GDGD
YouTube link to performance - Sheet music for download
Lovers of BRETON Music: The FestNoz on Tues night is both a session and a dance. DOTS in PDF are downloadable from my Google Drive HERE. We’ll alternate playing and yakking, and Adrienne will demonstrate the dances while we play so dancers can follow along (but no actual teaching).
