Shimmering Sands Bellydance

Some of you may know that in another life I was a member of the USU Middle Eastern Dance Club.  USU MED has now moved off campus to their new home at the Whittier Center in Logan and become Shimmering Sands.  While I am no longer dancing with them, I am still a fan and try to make it to shows as often as I can.  I'm happy to say that they have 2 great evenings of entertainment coming up.

This Saturday, March 23rd, members of Shimmering Sands will be performing at the Indian Oven in downtown Logan.  You must make a reservation for 8pm, dancing begins at 8:30pm.  Call 435.787.1757 for more information or to reserve your table today.

Then on Friday, May 10th, Shimmering Sands Bellydance presents Sandstorm.  Buy your tickets now for their spring 2013 extravaganza featuring the Shimmering Sands performing troupes and students, as well as some of the best bellydancers in Utah, including special guest Michelle Sorensen.

There will be 2 workshops the following day, May 11th.   

Workshop 1 –11am – 1pm
Slow and Steady: Drills to Improve Control
This class will concentrate on technique for super slow and muscular dance movements to give you the control you’re looking for!
We will focus on drilling repetitive sequences to aid in muscle memory and then apply them in combination format for practice on using them in performance.

Workshop 2 - 2pm – 4pm
Triple Header: 3 Ways To Play
An introduction to musical interpretation and how to break it down. Come learn 3 different combinations to the same piece of music. We will discuss musical cues, counts, and emotional projections to help you get started on making a piece of music your own.

Special Early Bird pricing for both workshops $75.00 before April 1st.  For more information call 435.881.1486 or email shimmeringsandsbellydance [at] gmail [dot] com
