Oriental Dance for the Stage by Joana Saahirah - Class No. 2
Introduction to the concept of Story Telling as an essential part of any Oriental Dance performance. How to translate feelings, thought, human experience into dance that comes from the soul and reaches the audience´s soul. Exploration of tools for performers like directions, angles, use of inner and exterior space on the stage. Definition of the Stage as a Personal Space (What does the stage mean FOR YOU?). Freedom and Temperature. Beginning of 2 choreographies we´ll keep building on upcoming classes: Rihanna´s Love on the Brain and a bombastic "Majancé" (entrance on stage) that will rock you.
