Datura Drills
Just what it sounds like! This class serves as a bridge between the Fundamentals and Combinations classes by working on technique drills for the elements of Datura Style fusion and really, any kind of fusion! This all-levels class will be accessible and at the same time, challenging for experienced dancers to really focus on the details of their technique. Great for non-Datura style students, as we will be working with moves and elements that are universal to fusion belly dance.

Datura Group Improvisation
This class is for anyone who has worked with Datura Style, Fat Chance, or other similar formats for group improvisation. We will concentrate on learning the ins and outs of Datura Style Group Improv and combinations, learning how to lead, follow, cue, and transition in the dance.

Though there will be some Datura vocabulary taught, it's best to know the basic "stall movements" of group improv. This class will move quickly and requires some bravery so it will be limited to those with intermediate fusion or group improvisation skills.

If you have questions about this class please email christina@easterngroove.com before registering.
