Sacred Earth Bellydance retreat with Hannah Mi Anis
About This Event
A 6 day retreat in Spain presents Hannah Mi Anis' signature blend of Sacred Earth Belly Dance interwoven with the structure and strength of many generations of Tribal belly dance.
We play with the seamless journey from the bold and powerful to a caressing yin like flow allowing the different and valid aspects of the female principle to emerge. Calling on philosophies and aesthetics in Indian Classical and Middle Eastern dance Hannah introduces relevant terms and concepts to bring clarity to our choice of movements and our intention in dance.
There will be strong focus on musicality and its resonance inside our bodies, harnessing the messages rooted within some of the most beloved rhythms in the Belly dance repertoire.
Expect a cascade of sensation, a conjuring of worlds, full bloodied dance sequences interweaving the full spectrum of the elements of fire, water, earth, air and ether; a gaze at the energy embedded in the raw DNA of each movement.
The course involves at its core:
*foundational movement, alignment and practices to build good grounding.
* rhythm knowledge and awareness
* intelligent improvisation
*Yoni Shakti yoga practice
* theory and discussion
This is a women only event, a base knowledge of belly dance or movement in any style is advised.
Hannah Mi Anis is a London based dancer and instructress. Her dance is rooted in the energy, technique and philosophy of Tribal Fusion and Sacred Earth belly dance; a dance with respect for nature and the elements, woman's innate knowledge, the language of archetypes and each individual's spiritual depth.
