THE FIRST REFLECTION:
Modern Single Veil Choreography
Imagine the first dancer seeing her own shadow by the light of fire… the discovery of her twin flame… her souls' reflection… This choreography plays with the spirits' unearthing of development. The music sings from a primitive time in life that wordlessly moves you into a veil dancers' playful first reflection of themselves…
Applied logic taught in this time block: Finger manipulation, veil movement (moving the veil from behind the head to the front of the body), and how to recover from a dropped veil.
You will need one Semi-Circular Veil (preferably silk) for this choreography.
Lunch Break: 12pm - 12:30pm
Please bring your own lunch or plan accordingly.
Afternoon Instruction: 12:30pm - 2:30pm
THE EXPANSIVE UNIVERSE WITHIN:
Double Veil Master Class
Practicing consciousness, we will choose to mindfully use our emotions as tools to be expressed through dance. We will match colors with moods, and learn to leave the moment/performance behind thus enabling you to move on and move forward after each show. We have the ability to change the world through ourselves by awakening the energy and power from within your universe, your mind, and your body.
Who better to learn from than the Double Veil Queen herself, Petite Jamilla? With over 16 years in commanding this prop, she is undisputedly the best to learn from!
In this master class; you will learn to divide your body into a horizontal plane to achieve proper technique and usage of this expansive prop, turns and spins Petite Jamilla (PJ) prefers to use and a simple breakdown of each.
During the class, PJ uses alternating directions
to avoid dizziness but still achieving the desired effect with the veil. PJ will discuss her fabric preferences in weight, viscosity and size. She will also talk about how each fabric choice correlates with a certain velocity of spin and why.
Two semi-circular veils needed for participating in this workshop.
