DanceNL is proud to present an NL Moves workshop: Belly Dance for Beginners with instructor Lori Savory.
This introductory belly dance workshop begins with a short talk about the history of belly dance and its cultural context, as well as a discussion about costuming, followed by a lesson in belly dance technique and beginner-level movements. Students will learn a simple choreography based on these movement. Participants are asked to wear comfortable clothes they can move in, and a scarf to wear around the hips. Water bottles and notebooks are also recommended. DanceNL is pleased to present this workshop as part of Culture Days.
Lori Savory started belly dancing 10 years ago as a student of the Neighbourhood Strays belly dance troupe, of which she subsequently became a member and, eventually, Artistic Director. She co-founded Obsidian Dance Collective in 2013. In 2009, Lori started Wild Lily Dance Centre, where she taught belly dance, and also took further classes in Bollywood, Flamenco, Broadway, Hip Hop, Contemporary, Tango and International Folk Dance. Lori has traveled to Toronto and to the USA for training with the best tribal belly dancers in the world. For the second time, this year she will perform at TribalFest in California.
