Love Is The Drug-Bevin Victoria

Our #dancecrush this week is the multifaceted, literal triple threat Bevin Victoria! Bevin is a fusion dancer based in Portland, Oregon who has been dancing since the age of 3 (wow!) and has a background in classical ballet, jazz, hip hop, musical theater, martial arts, acrobatics, West African dance, samba, flamenco, salsa, and contemporary fusion bellydance - all of which inform her highly athletic hybrid dance style. We love how Bevin honors her jazz studies in this piece while exploring fluidity in bellydance-based movements, and those sassy expressions just absolutely tickle us! In addition to performing as a dancer, Bevin is a teacher for Datura, an actor for stage and film, and a pop vocalist with an EP titled Let It Go. Truly, what doesn't she do?! ๐Ÿ˜

Nostalgia Baladi by Christine Yaven (Inspire Festival 2021)

This week our #dancecrush is "Indonesia's bellydance icon," Christine Yaven! Christine is the founder of Bellydance Jakarta and has nearly twenty years ๐Ÿ˜ฒ of training in and teaching Middle Eastern Dance. We're absolutely mesmerized by her liquidity and the sensuality she brings to this baladi - we can't look away from that sultry expression and those ooey-gooey hips are EVERYTHING! We also love the emphasis on body positivity and accessibility Christine brings to her social media presence; dance is for EVERYONE and that is something to celebrate! Christine teaches internationally and has been all over the online hafla scene lately, don't miss any chance to catch her!

Henna Belly Dances at Jamballah NW 2017

We're crushin' hard on Heather "Henna" Louise this week - she's well-known in the world of dance for her delicate interpretation of Egyptian raqs sharqi. Henna is located in the Pacific Northwest and if you've ever logged on to Datura you have probably seen her video classes! We love how she easily blends earthy hipwork and gorgeous airy hands, especially in this interpretation of Lisaa Fakir. Not only is she an excellent dancer, she also taught in Tokyo for several years before coming back to the US and teaching for Datura. We love her emphasis on cultural awareness in her classes and how she advocates for dancers of Middle Eastern origin!

This week our #dancecrush is none other than the multifaceted Mira Betz! This Bay Area-based dancer has been performing and teaching both traditional and contemporary forms of MENAHT Dance for over 25 years and has particularly influenced the development of Transnational Fusion styles. What we love about her dancing is the deep emotion and storytelling in every piece she creates - and her control is just out of this world!

Hi Dancer Sisters... Laura and I were chatting about live belly dance shows in the LA area and I forgot what they are. Which places do you recommend? The Gate to the Mediterranean is closed until further notice ๐Ÿ˜ญ
"Improvisation Fundamentals" 4 week session starts Wednesdays 8:15pm through August. Virtual, and limited In-Studio. I don't want to dance like everyone else, or anyone else, and neither should you! I'll provide the Framework with cultural references, techniques, musicality, and encouragement. You provide the artistry, your heart, and soul! Sign up here๐Ÿ‘‡ www.dancegardenla.com
It's Thursday my dear DG friends. Would love to see you tonight 7:45pm. Things could be changing soon and I would love to see you while things are still the same!! In person or Zoom. Join me!
This Saturday evening watch your DGLA teachers in a flash from the past! See if you find hints of my broken toe! (It caught on a chair as I was walking to the stage & was bruised, bloody & out of joint!!) Join the event ๐Ÿ‘‡to get a reminder and more info! https://www.facebook.com/events/3972598312763186/
Hi Dance Gardeners! I'm planning my Fiesta piece now, because as a thank you to the students who've stuck with us this crazy past year, I want to provide custom made costumes for participants in my Choreography video, & for future shows. I'll get more info on date of show and rehearsals, but I want to order costumes now to have in time. So PM me if you would like to participate, and I'll get your measurements! Love to all!
Tuesdays 6:30pm Open Level Egyptian Style is back!
I told my Sunday Drum class that I would post this video. I hope everybody can enjoy and resonate on some level. Here is an example of some women drumming students in Egypt. The teacher is a drummer named Said el Artist.
Take a look at this Golden Era Turkish Oriental bellydance performance, from the lovely and legendary Nejla Ates! Wanna learn more about Turkish-style bellydance? Join me Saturdayโ€™s at 12:45-1:45p PST! ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–
8pm tonight!!! Very nurturing community class. An excellent self care date for a Friday night
Ruth St. Denis was a pioneer of American modern dance, drawing inspiration, ironically enough, from Middle Eastern dance. She taught the silent movie star Theda Bara to perform the 'Dance of the Seven Veils' in 'Salome' (1918). For Bara's most famous movie, 'Cleopatra' (1917) St. Denis taught her to perform St. Denis' famous 'Peacock Dance,' and she may have also taught Bara to perform a belly dance for the seduction of Julius Caesar scene.
Join me this Friday evening for a special Dark Moon Deep Dive โค Show up with all your cozy things + crystals + journal. We'll allow the day, the week...even the year to melt away as we become present with ourselves and the quiet, soothing energy of the dark moon...the time just before a new moon. A perfect time to go inward, to float in the bliss of divine consciousness, to allow the soothing sounds and silence to nurture your spirit. We'll breathe & stretch the body gently into a space of letting go. We'll practice the art of relaxation. In fact, you can go mimis right after! โค https://fb.me/e/38asyoiJG
Starting tomorrow, following my Sunday 11:10am Choreography class we will start formal rehearsals for my Fiesta production. Preparing for Dec 20 show we will use pre-recorded video, or a an extremely physically distanced outdoor filming. All info will be coming soon on www.dancegardenla.com or PM me for info!
