ART OF THE BELLY

Friday 5:00 – 6:30 
Afrofusion Drills and Combos

This workshop focuses on teaching technique and choreography that borrows from 

Pan African vernacular and street dances found throughout the continent and the 

diaspora, as well as Hip Hop, House, and Jazz Funk. We will focus on polycentric 

dance techniques that will blend upper and lower body isolations with rhythmical footwork that complements the polyrhythms of Afrobeat, Afrobeats, Afrohouse and more! Be ready to get intricate, grounded, and groovy!

Saturday 9:00-10:30 
Go-Go Choreography
Soul, Funk, and Disco are on the menu for this fun session inspired by Constance’s adventures as Connie Love in the world of nightlife as a professional Go-Go dancer.

 Get ready to work on improvisation exercises that will help you to build your personal movement vocabulary, presence, connection to your audience, and musicality. Class will conclude with learning a short combo that will fuse elements of choreography and freestyle. Feel free to wear whatever footwear (stilettos, chunky heels, sneakers, etc) you feel balanced and comfortable in or none at all!

BIO

The Lunachix manifest under the light of a full moon in 2013. These "Showgirls of the Future" convene in Oneonta, NY since contracts for their Vegas residency have yet to be finalized. Whether presenting baudy murder mystery variety revues or wreaking emotional dance havoc, the Lunachix are guided by their profound friendship and a spirit of creative collaboration. They are just as happy dancing in (maybe on?) a dive bar as they are on prestigious festival and theater stages, just so long as they get to be together.
The Lunachix are choreographed by Rose Calavera and Jo Boring. Director Jo Boring is also a co-owner of Team Belly Set Go Dance Studio. The studio offers adult dance classes in person and online.
