Tribal Throwback Choreography Intensive with Heidi
An avid, life-long student of dance Heidi is excited to share this new intermediate level choreography that has an old school tribal feel with a modern twist. Students are invited to dive into the choreography process and challenge themselves in this six hour intensive broken up into two session: Friday, March 8 from 7:30pm to 9:30pm focusing on technique used in the choreography and Saturday, March 9 from 12:15pm to 4:15pm focusing on learning the combos that make up the choreography and putting it all together with fun and challenging staging for the AFBD Anniversary show in June. Students will be asked to join a closed Facebook group where they'll have access to videos of both the choreography and the technique needed to execute it, a resource list for their costumes and a community to support and encourage you along the way. Students will be required to submit a private video of themselves performing the choreography, solo or with a friend, in full costume by May 17. Please note that students may be asked to resubmit their video for a myriad of reasons that Heidi is happy to privately discuss. Additionally there will be a pick up rehearsal on stage the day of the show for the group to work out spacing and run the piece together before showtime!
Heidi has been dancing all of her life. Starting as a ballerina and moving her way through jazz, tap, modern, musical theater, timba Cubana, ATS (R), and belly dance fusion styles. She is fascinated by movement in all it's forms and enjoys getting to share her passion and knowledge with her students. As a belly dancer she has had the great pleasure of studying with top dance instructors and performing with a few along the way. Most notably she has performed with Bellydance Evolution on three tours throughout the east coast in their productions of Alice in Wonderland (2014) and Fantasm (2017). Currently she is working on finishing up her Integrated Dance certification with Ashley Lopez and her Progressing Ballet Technique certification. For more information check out www.HeidiBaila.com
