YOUTH & ADULT SILK ROAD STYLE GROUP IMPROVISATIONAL AND FUSION BELLYDANCE FOUNDATIONS:
Group Improvisation is a style of Bellydance that uses a common vocabulary of movements and non-verbal, body language cues by a leader to create a unique dance every time. Inspired by foundational folkloric dance styles of the Middle East, North Africa, Spain and India, this style encourages a supportive group environment and there are no choreographies to memorize. Fusion Bellydance was born from the western evolution of Middle Eastern dance. It takes elements of Group Improvisation and pairs it with other styles of dance, including (but not limited to) Hip Hop, Flamenco, classical Indian, and Bollywood. What you get is a unique style that is rooted in traditional Middle Eastern Dance with a modern twist that is open to a world of possibilities.
