STAGECRAFT {the Classic module, Part 1} with Devi in Maitland

Date:  18th and 19th May 2019

STAGECRAFT – The science of successful performance.

In this brand new intensive Devi will guide you through step by step on how to become the best dancer you can be!

This intensive will include how to get the most out of every movement, the importance of stillness, foot and arm patterns and how to keep track of them, musicality including various ways to break down some of the most challenging time signatures so you will have the confidence to use them, fun and new ways to use your zills, improvisation, how to choreograph and more!

Devi’s intention with this new intensive is for every dancer at every level, whether they are a performer or not to be able to unlock the door on some of the more challenging aspects of being a dancer and change the way we think when coming up against some of these issues. As well as a brand new outlook on your dance Devi wants you to find your own unique style and she will help you to bring that out into your dance whether it be in the comfort of your own home, the classroom or on the stage.

The first module of STAGECRAFT is the classic module and is the foundation for all style modules of STAGECRAFT. To participate in the other style modules you must complete the classic module first. The Classic module is 4 days and will be run over two weekends in Newcastle, NSW (May and August 2019). Here are the details of our first weekend, now open for registration:

DAY 1 – Saturday 18th May 2019
=========================
STAGECRAFT CLASSIC WORKSHOP 1
Technique: 3 hours (10am – 1pm).
In this workshop Devi will show you her method for beautiful arms and hands, hips, torso work and layering. The focus for this workshop will be on getting the most out of your movement, working from your centre and dancing from the inside out rather than focusing on technique from a specific style.

STAGECRAFT CLASSIC WORKSHOP 2
Construction of movement: 3 hours (2 – 5pm)
In this workshop Devi will share with you a step by step process of the classic foot and arm patterns which you can mix and match to create your own movement. We will also look at the importance of weight shift, resistance and release, movement and stillness to give your dance interest and dynamics.

DAY 2 – Sunday 19th May 2019
========================
STAGECRAFT CLASSIC WORKSHOP 3
Innovative Formations : 2.5 hours (10am – 12:30pm)
Devi is well known for her exciting stage dynamics and formations. In this workshop Devi will present her method for staging, formations, and shapes within those formations. We will also look at the best formations and shapes for both small and larger groups.

STAGECRAFT CLASSIC WORKSHOP 4
Dance dimensions: 3 hours (1:30pm- 4:30pm)
In this workshop you will learn how to get the most out of your staging and movement. This will include spins and turns, travelling, directional changes and levels . Devi will also share with you creative ways to create your own longer combos, using the knowledge you already have in your body that you can work into your improvisation or choreography.

Weekend 2 will be held in Newcastle on 24th and 25th August 2019 and the workshop topics are:
– Crazy Rhythms, cool head
– Demystifying your zills
– how to choreograph
– Musicality
– The x factor!
– The art of emotive improvisation

STAGECRAFT – The science of successful performance.

In this brand new intensive Devi will guide you through step by step on how to become the best dancer you can be!

 ATS (r) 4 day intensive with Devi !


Join Devi for the ATS (r) module of STAGECRAFT.
We will start the intensive by taking a look at the science of ATS(r). How does ATS(r) work and what is behind that ATS(r) look. We will then put this knowledge into practise by drilling this with some of the Classic ATS(r) steps.

We will then spend the remainder of the first 2 days learning all of Ghawazi Caravans movement dialect steps and concepts as well as some they have borrowed from some of our favourite ATS (r) troupes from around the world

The last 2 days will be on how to utilise props with group improvisational choreography. We will take a look at how to modify some of your favourite ATS(r) steps with a sword, short fanveils, skirt and basket.

Scroll down for more info for more info on what we will be covering and the schedule for the 4 days

NOTE: The ATS(r) style module of STAGECRAFT follows on from the first 4 days of STAGECRAFT, the Classic module. It is not necessary for you to complete the Classic module first but if you would like to be involved in the Classic module I will be teaching the first 2 days of the Classic module in Maitland on 18th/19th May and the last 2 days of the Classic module in Maitland on 24th/25th August.
