10–11.30am: Silk Fan Veils

Silk Fan Veils:
Silk fan veils are a hynotic and extavagent prop that can dramatically enhance performances with a whirl of colours! Jazida (who was awarded the title of "Miss Fantastic 2016" for being the best fan dancer in the Miss Burlesque Australia competition and who also holds a series of other awards) is known for her use of silk fan veils and she will share her tips and techniques on using these props with showgirl style! Learn a variety of tips, techniques and exciting combos. We’ll explore single, double, open and closed fan work to help build strength in the core, wrists, arms, back; increase flexibility; and develop musicality. Classes are suitable for complete beginner to those with experience looking to finesse their existing skills.

What to wear:
Clothing that allows you to dance and move freely without too much excess fabric around your arms (best to steer clear of baggy sleeves and very loose tops).

Belly-lesque with Jazida:
In the late 1800s, a troupe called "Little Egypt" came to America and regularly performed at the World Fair in Chicago and this had a big impact on the future of bellydancing in America. These same dancers had an interesting impact on the future of burlesque and saw the birth of hoochie coochie dancing which later evolved into the bump and grind. In this workshop, we'll learn a burlesque style choreography through a bellydance lens and explore defining the difference between belly dance and burlesque.

Jazida has dancing bellydance since 2009, performs at Turkish restaurants round Canberra. Outside of bellydancing, Jazida is a celebrated burlesque performer who has won multiple awards and accolades.


What to wear:
Fitted but comfortable clothing (through which you can see your hip movements)
