Tribal Summit 2017

Saturday, September 16, 2017, 1:00 AM

Join Caldera Tribal in historic Silverton, Colorado for an intimate mountain retreat filled with autumn leaves, camaraderie, and American Tribal Style® belly dance workshops with none other than Carolena Nericcio-Bohlman, the creator of American Tribal Style® and director of FatChanceBellyDance®!  Tribal Summit includes 9 hours of workshops, vending, a lecture, meet & greet, and a community hafla featuring performances by workshop participants! All workshop hours count toward FCBD® Sister Studio Continuing Education. Dancers of all stripes are welcome, but a basic working knowledge of ATS® will be helpful. A limited number of private and semi-private lessons are also available; please inquire for details by emailing calderabellydance@gmail.com.  Class size is limited and this event will sell out, so reserve your spot today! WEEKEND SCHEDULE & WORKSHOP DESCRIPTIONS WELCOME LECTURE – ATS® COSTUMING Friday, Sept. 15th, 6 – 7 pm, Location TBD Learn about the evolution of the American Tribal Style® costume, its essential elements, and how they contribute to the overall aesthetic of the dance form. DANCE & DRUM JAM / MEET & GREET Friday, Sept. 15th, 7 – 9 pm, Location TBD Join Carolena and your Caldera Tribal hostesses for a fun dance jam and some social time. BYOB and a drum if you have one, and let’s dance! ACCELERATED BASICS – DANCE FUNDAMENTALS & TRIBAL COMBOS Saturday, Sept. 16th, 10 am - Noon Review the foundational movements of ATS® and their correct technique, including Taxeem, Bodywave, Hand Floreo, Arm Undulations, Shimmy, Arabic Basic, Egyptian Basic, Pivot Bumps and Choo-Choos. Then drill the basic steps and their variations in combinations and mini-choreographies, using partnering and group work to emphasize communication between dancers. Who should take this class? EVERYONE! If you are attending the weekend and need a review before delving into partner work, please embrace this class as a way to clarify your steps and transitions in order to work effectively with your fellow dancers. It is your responsibility to know the material in order to meet your partners on the dance floor. Don’t intend to “just follow along,” you must be able to visualize the next step or transition in order to be a functioning part of the group. If you are a teacher, plan on both taking this class as a student, and absorbing this class for its rapid transmission of content. Chances are you are using too many words and leaving your students standing still for too long. Watch Carolena reach out to all learning styles and get the whole room on track while covering a vast amount of information in a short amount of time  - all without leaving anyone behind. SCULPT YOUR STEPS Saturday, Sept. 16th, 1:30 – 2:30 pm Look inside your steps and see how they work. Then, understand how to add shape, angles and motion. Using the playground of anchor and release we’ll explore your favorite steps. ZILS – YIN & YANG  Saturday, Sept. 16th, 2:30 – 3:30 pm Yes, you can play your zils and dance at the same time! Learn how to hold your zils so you can play fast, what to do with your zils during a slow song, which zils are right for you, how to get a consistent sound, and a few other tricks. We’ll look at five tribal zil patterns (Basic RLR, Alternating RL, Military, Moroccan Six, Baladi), and apply them to your dance. PICKY TECHNIQUE Saturday, Sept. 16th, 3:30 – 4 pm Ever wondered what the hands are doing in the third section of the Sahra Turn? How to keep the lifting hip weightless in the Taxeem? Do your arms get tired after a few minutes of dancing? You asked for it, you got it! A class devoted to your specific technique questions.  AUTUMN HAFLA  Saturday, Sept. 16th, 7:30 – 10 pm  Shop for unique and beautiful items with our vendors, savor light appetizers and drinks, and enjoy fabulous belly dance performances by workshop participants!
