What to expect in classes:

 

 

*Drumming & salutations

 

*Dance sequences and disciplined responses to popular music & cultural connections.

 

*Energy focuses with body awareness & positive realm connection, positive psychology & group connection are a big part of the dance-tribe. Erin brings 2 core respects forward for participants – confidence and capacity to ignite the flame, furthered by happiness in the personality that person-centred dance-practice brings. Fusion elements & bellydance attributes are a recognizable feature but not a foundation of restricted belief in dance expression.

 

 

What to bring:

 

*Water bottle, dance shoes of choice (for vinyl floor) or barefoot at best.

 

 

*Wear yoga pants, cotton-leggings, no jeans – hip wrap is optional.

 

 

Body comfort in casual clothes & relaxed gorgeousness isn't a  Diva-pose necessity. No mirror- environment, circle centric attitude, more self-honesty.

Class Overview & Values

 

Where there is a rhythm, there is a drum to play –

be it djembe, clay tabla or spirit wheel.

 

Where there is a heart spring,

let the joy of movement be your guide.

 

I enjoy the value of Integrity in the dance.

 

Erin takes her participants on a soulful express of delight – both conceptual & technical. An experienced dancer & performer across dance vocabularies, Erin refreshes the immediate feeling & guides awareness in expressive energy & thought. Patterns are inherent, interpretation is a must, spirit guidance in the energy is a sure acknowledgement.

 

This is our weekly fun, nourishment & Beginners-Intermediate-advanced dancers are welcome.

 

Certificates awarded at the end of the year for Participation in Studio Program.

 

Dance Dialogues

 

Erin’s performance experience spans 10 years – a joy-full dancer with proud, varied troupe experiences in the energy of world dance fusion. Collective experiences are many, having danced at Holimahotsav City of Sydney, The Royal Easter, Tribal & Bellydance Festivals & soirees including SydMedFest, Tribal & Trance Festival, Newy, Ironfest, Sister Goddess Events, Coffs Harbour Bellydance and soirees local. Community support with participation has included Relay for Life, MBS, Kirtan Performances with Premananda & Local NSW Kirtan & World musicians, Markets diverse, travelling to events for seniors through Sri Rom, entertaining Senior residents in nursing homes. Erin is a regular soloist at Ironfest and recently presented intuitive performances at MindBodySpirit Sydney, in dance, conversation and with workshops in Art, Dance, Meditation and Energy.

 

Erin has trained in various classes & workshops looking at her own growth as a dancer across Flamenco, African dance, Tribal styles: ATS, Fusion, Gypsie Caravan, with experiences also in Oriental dance, Dabke, Folkloric, Physical Culture & Contemporary. Her interest in Rhythm has grown through performance & spiritual guidance connecting with zills (finger symbols), use of props (floral-weave basket, silk veil, silk fans, saidi cane, vel poi), African djembe drum classes and development as an Earth shaman with soul-guide honouring in Native American tradition.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Structured Aims

 

  • Students find holistic discovery and personal energetic awareness in their own development, using meditation, chakra awareness, energetic tools and techniques.

  • Students imbue awareness for the ‘sacred’ – that is, an engagement with information, understanding through experience, showcasing respect & seeking personal affinity with practice.

  • Students develop and fine-tune artistic territory in the making of art-forms: visually, aurally, musically and energetically.
