Hipnotic has been performing in the Chicago area since 2002. With a firm foundation in American Tribal Style, they have integrated African, Indian, Hip Hop, Gothic and Flamenco styles to make their performances interesting, colorful and mesmerizing. They are dedicated to bringing a fresh look to tribal style belly dance and truly believe in the power of the troupe, as well as the energy created within when dancing.
Belly Dance Workshops
10 – Noon: Floored! - A Turkish Drop Workshop (Limit 10 participants)
The Turkish Drop is a well-known belly dance move. Though it is not performed in traditional Egyptian styles of dance, it can be found in Turkish Belly Dance as well as other styles of dance such as Flamenco and many dancers add it to their fusion choreographies, and tribal stylizations. The Turkish Drop requires a combination of strength and flexibility to be done correctly to minimize injury. This workshop explores the physical requirements of performing a safe Turkish Drop.
1:30 – 3:30: Action Extraction - Cues From Choreography
How many times have you taken a workshop with a 5 minute choreography? How many times do you remember the choreography? That's what we thought - we don't remember them either! This workshop is designed to help you pull out choreography moves that you want to tribalize! Learn how to identify the beginning, middle and end of the move and ideas on HOW to end them. Use this skill to create moves from your favorite belly dancing DVDs!
Performance – 7:30 pm
