I will be teaching THREE workshops at this inaugural event in Austin, Texas!
Friday: January 13
"Twerkshop": Ass Fusion!
It’s all about the booty! With his vast experience working in burlesque, exotic dance, and variety shows, Draconis made this workshop to share the secrets of isolating your derriere. Included are stretches to loosen up those glutes, safety procedures, drills for your buns, and a short Twerk Fusion choreography!
9am -- 11am
Saturday: January 14
"Big Hair, Don't Care": Stage Hair Basics
This workshop is a stage-ready hair lecture and demonstration specifically for belly dancers!! As a licensed cosmetologist and 5 years working in the industry, Draconis has tons of advice and help ready to offer belly dancers to kick their performance appearance up 10 notches. We will discuss the use of hair extensions, hot tools, teasing, product, and a demonstration will be done on a participant from the workshop. If you’d like to bring your own mirror and some tools to practice on yourself, feel free!
3p -- 4p
Sunday: January 15
"Powerful Movements": Movement Translation Onstage
This class is designed to infuse your movements with power, energy, and most importantly, translation to the audience. This is a drill-style class that will focus on making your juicy movements jucier, your explosive movements more intense, and even take those micro-movements and re-charge them so your audience can enjoy them to their full potential. Emphasis will be on muscular conditioning, mindful practice, and presence in the moment of your movements.
2p -- 4p
