Join Siobhan Camille, the director of Greenstone Belly Dance, on Saturday May 23 at 10:00am CEST for a free short strength class designed for belly dancers!
Siobhan Camille is not only a professional oriental dancer, but also a strength & conditioning coach and rehabilitative exercise specialist who has researched injury in belly dance, and worked with athletes and clients of all kinds for over a decade. She’s passionate about helping belly dancers dance stronger and safer!
Join Siobhan Camille on Instagram Live tomorrow, or check out the Dance Strong tab on our website to find out more about how she can help you tune up your instrument; your body.
Life experience is dance experience: are you ready to show your vulnerability on stage?
No matter your dance style, being clear on the message you want to communicate, and learning how to communicate and share yourself with the audience, will enrich your performances.
Want to take your dance to the next level? Join us for “Bellydance and the Authentic Self” with Amanda Rose at 14:00 on Saturday October 26 in Rotterdam (And there’s still places to perform at the hafla if you want to put your learning into practice that evening!).
Register now here to take your dance expression even further. Watch the full Q&A with Amanda Rose here.
The first time I performed this piece, I came off stage disappointed with myself.
This piece, “Epilogue,” was meant to be about moving on from the past.
About – one of my favourite phrases, but one that is hard to put into practice – “gently letting go of things not meant for you.” I wasn’t disappointed by my technique, or even by my expression of feeling and emotion on stage. I was disappointed that I finished the piece with a feeling of great sadness and longing, instead of the calm, accepting sort of resolve I had intended and hoped for with the finale.
We are very excited to announce that Siobhan Camille was named the winner of the 7th edition of the Datura Online Belly Dance with her entry for Zaina!
Watch the video of Siobhan’s entry here:
This choreography was created by Henna, a dancer based in Portland, Oregon, who Siobhan has also been lucky enough to study with in person in the past.
Siobhan is delighted to have been able to take part in this competition, and ecstatic to have been selected as the grand prize winner for “Zaina”!
A special thank you to Darin Young Photography for all his work on filming and editing this piece.
