Krysalis: Invocation w/ Kami Liddle (USA)
10:00 - 17:00
✩ ABOUT KRYSALIS ✩
Krysalis is a new dance program crafted by Kami Liddle (USA). This innovative new program is launching late summer 2018 in both San Francisco, California and St Gallen, Switzerland.
The objective of the overall program is to help dancers develop and refine their knowledge base and to experience and elevate the dancer through four individual courses. The intention is not to teach dancers to dance a particular way, but rather, to nurture the path of each dancer and give them the tools to create their own authentic movement.
Krysalis consists of four courses:
Invocation: Foundation of Contemporary Fusion Belly Dance Technique
Expansion: Professional Performance Intensive
Conception: Choreography Creation Lab
Elevation*: Advanced Technique
*Courses can be taken individually and in no particular order except for Elevation which requires certification of Invocation before enrolling.
✩ ABOUT INVOCATION ✩
This 5 day intensive will dive into the foundation of Kami Liddle’s signature style of dance that she refers to as contemporary fusion belly dance. This style fuses present-day belly dance genres with contemporary dance. Contemporary fusion belly dance combines strong leg and foot work with fluidity in the spine and precision in the torso. It emphasizes strength and flexibility, rhythmic and musical phrasing, and most importantly, self-expression. This course will cover these elements and serve as a strong base for any level dancer as they move through the Krysalis courses and their personal path as a dancer.
Each class will begin with an in-depth warm up to help build strength and flexibility aimed at creating strong dancers with increased body awareness. Warm ups will emphasize cross-training while combining Vinyasa Yoga, floor barre, and traditional modern dance exercises. Dancers will develop their dance technique including isolations, foot patterns, turns, and layering. Classes will culminate in learning full-body movement phrases, concentrating on spinal articulation, extensive arm work, and spatial intent.
Dancers will learn the fundamental concepts to use the choreographic phrases provided throughout the course as a framework to find their own artistic individuality.
