Tribal Fan Flow with Lux Arati

Michelle Yeager & Lux Arati Members

Description

Lux Arati’s unique blend of dance and fire arts has entertained crowds since 2011. Come learn some of their style from Lux Arati’s artistic director, Michelle Yeager. This workshop will focus on blending tribal bellydance movements and format with fire fans, bring your favorite set of fans and prepare to get your Luxie booty shaking. The workshop will start with a short warm-up, followed by a breakdown of tribal bellydance movements and drills. The second part of the class will begin to blend those movements with prop manipulation and, finally, we will put everything we’ve learned together while playing with various group formations.
