Steampunk themed dance workshop at Imaginarium Sunday, October 7th, 2018 at 2pm with Safiya Nawaar!
Every Cos-play Character needs a little bit of personality, attitude and character development to go with the suit! So, in this workshop we will explore those vital ingredients of cosplay through dance and movement! Come and learn a combination of acting through attitude, posture and gestures, and a mix of theatrical dance, folk dance and dare we say…. some sexy, sinuous belly dance moves?? Tighten your garters, buckle your belts, pull up those tights, and get ready for some fancy footwork! Whether you are just looking to be footloose at a local dance hall, or you want to pursue your dreams of taking the stage, this will be a great workshop for the aspiring dancer or cos-player!
We will be exploring one of Safiya’s personal favorites..’ a Steampunk Funky Fusion style. Under her pseudonym, Lady Safiya Seraphine LoveLace, she is constantly exploring and developing this fusion style of dance. Her professional dance troupe classes, along with frequent stage and event performances, fuel the necessity for new choreographies and innovative dance moves. This ever-growing demand is the impetus for the development of her experimental bellydance fusion techniques, drawing from a lengthy and eclectic history of dance genres and theatrical training. So, join Safiya for a dance workshop that’s sure to be as informative as it will be entertaining, and let her share some of her signature moves with you!
Safiya has been performing and teaching traditional, folkloric and fusion belly dance for over 18 years and is the owner of Arabesque World Dance in Lexington, Ky. (www.arabesquelex.com). She is also a proud member of the Steampunk Group, Airship Caduceus! Visit her on facebook at @safiyanawaarbellydancer or @arabesqueworlddance.
