Introduction to Belly Dance Fusion with Yoni Biyé
Let's engage in a thought experiment about the origins of dance as a reaction to music. I will show you how I let the music decide when and how I move. The workshop will progress through movements from different styles to create a combination, before we finish off the class with a cooldown to recenter ourselves.
Yoni is a transnational fusion artist whose style focuses on theatrical elements and subtle plays on the musicality of the songs he works with. His technique is based in explorations of Central Asian and MENA dance styles, as well as a strong foundation in Egyptian folkloric and Turkish classical dance.
