This dance workshop will explore experimental bellydance techniques fused with cosplay themes. The instructor, Safiya Nawaar will introduce workshop participants to an amazing collection of signature fusion styles that she uses to enhance her own cosplay pursuits. Safiya’s dance complements eccentric themes like Steampunk, MadMax inspired post-holocaust, Startrek, etc. Participants will learn a combination of acting through attitude, posture and gestures with a mix of theatrical dance, folk dance and dare we say…some sexy sinuous belly dance moves? This can add a whole new exciting and engaging dimension of character development for the cosplayer!
Safiya Nawaar is owner and artistic director of Arabesque World Dance in Lexington, Ky and is an active workshop instructor, choreographer and stage performer for Traditional, Folkloric and Fusion Belly Dance in the U.S.
