MASSIVE™ Fusion Advanced to Professional level training course expands the dancer’s concepts of theatricality, musicality, dance movement, costuming, choreography, performance quality, and developing a personal voice. Complex drills and technique-building will be used to create a deep and broad dance vocabulary, improve technique, expand proficiency, and stimulate creativity.
The Advanced/Professional Track is open to dancers with a thorough understanding of the foundations of bellydance, the ability to execute the foundations of bellydance and combine them, and a willingness to actively participate with the group. An understanding of spoken English is extremely helpful and is preferred, and you must be able to dance at least 8+ hours per day for 8 days.
Massive™ Professional level training course dives more deeply into the concepts of the Advanced/Pro Track, with additional emphasis on performance quality and developing a professional image. Complex drills will help refine dance vocabulary and perfect technique.
The Professional Track is open to dancers with a developed dance background, experienced performers, paid professional dancers or teachers, and highly advanced students who desire to become professionals. You must have a willingness to explore artistic interpretations, grow as a dancer, and push your boundaries as an artist. The students are expected to be critiqued openly in class, to do ‘homework’ assignments in addition to attending 100% of all classes and giving 100% of themselves to the group experience. An understanding of spoken English is required, and you must be able to dance at least 8+ hours per day for 8 days.
Detailed Class Descriptions will be available here July 2021
NOTE: The students from this track will be hand selected by our dance professors. Please register for the Advanced/Pro track, and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your desire to be selected for the Professional Track. If selected you will then be asked to pay the additional $500 Upgrade Fee on top of your Adv/Pro registration fee.
This exclusive 12 hour mini intensive with Jill Parker will help you hone your dance and creative skills. A major focus of the program is the technique and vocabulary that is the underpinning of Jill’s elegant, grounded, and powerful style. A gratifying focus on drilling and beyond into many concepts important for the performer: developing musical awareness, building confidence, thinking clearly and creatively on the spot, strategies for improvisation, and taking your dancing to the next level. Enjoy a supportive and joyful experience of learning in an intimate group with opportunities for personalized attention and feedback. Refine your movements; learn fabulous transitions that look fluid on stage; dive into some of Jill’s signature combos; explore improvisational exercises for groups, and nurture your mind and body with Jill’s holistic approach to movement.
Please read the detailed qualifications for each track. For new participants, we strongly suggest emailing Tori if you have any questions about which track to enroll in, to discuss where you might best be placed. Track schedules are up to view now, but detailed class descriptions are rarely added until well after the tracks are all sold out, as our teachers bring all new materials each year to the event.
