Colleena Shakti  and Studio Tandav (Bangalore) welcome you to a 3 day dance training intensive in Colleena’s signature Indian Fusion Bellydance style!

Her unique dance performance and approach has emerged out of 25+ years investment and residential studies in Bellydance (Egyptian folkloric, ATS, Tribal Fusion and modern evolutions), Odissi classical dance, Kathak and Rajasthani dances, yoga and martial arts, as well as contemporary dance and pedagogical studies.

In this workshop students will begin with centering and body/breath awareness through yoga, followed by a strong warm up focused on strengthening the relationship to our centerline.  Classes will include bellydance drills and techniques with live Arabic Darbuka drumming (by Matthew De Santis).

During the 3 days dancers will explore one of the unique movement concepts of Colleena’s fusion dance style: ‘Principle of Opposites’.  Extracting movement concepts, alignment and aesthetics from Odissi, she will present signature moves and phrases from her ‘Indian Fusion Formation’ dance format which are built upon this concept.

Each day our classes will end with some time for questions and discussion in theoretical aspects of dance. Dancers will learn a choreography over the course of the workshop and have the opportunity to perform together as a group in the Hafla event on Sunday evening.  

Certificates of Participation will be given to participants who attend all of the 3 days of workshop classes.
