Teacher: Irina Akulenko
Style: Fusion Bellydance
“Language of the Fan” focuses on Fan technique and short combinations. Grab a single, Right-handed fan*, big or small, Flamenco-style or a thin Chinese one (just not made of paper) and let’s dance! In this workshop, you will learn relaxed-paced, innovative combinations, focusing on clean lines and shapes that can be drawn in space with the fan, as well as several fun and dynamic throws which will surprise and delight the audience. We will play with different emotional intensities – from aggressive and strong to delicate and playful, and draw from multiple schools of thought and styles of dance that utilize this prop, and also explore some rule breaking as well.
*This class requires 1 (one) fan. Fan with a short fabric trim is preferred, full-length fan-veil will get in the way of our movement, although some techniques will be applicable to all styles of fans.
