Heather Wayman - Thursday -  9:00 am - 11:00 pm - Constellation Room - ‘ ZILS FOR BRAIN & BODY’ -  The ‘how’ of the Zils as it relates to musically counting the patterns and fitting them with the musical counting of the movement combos (Where the hips and feet go on what count). All of this would culminate into an a capella “choreo” of sorts and and maybe a segment where groups make their own zil / movement combo. No recorded music. Please bring zils to workshop
Diana Soto - Thursday - 11:30 am - 1:30 pm - Constellation Room - ‘FIRE & WATER’- a flamenco and raqs sharki workshop by Diana Soto -
Diana’s winning piece at Yaa Halla Yall in the summer of 2019 was the result of fusing styles, in particular flamenco and raqs sharki. In this workshop
we'll explore arm paths, torso work, turns and gesture as traditionally used in each of these two movement elements. We'll pay particular attention to
the level of tension and quality of intention needed for each to fuse in a way that feels real, honest and unique. Come delve into some innovative
fusion that burns the stage and flows like water!
