Dance for yourself! In this dance workshop, Nora Amin will work with her signature approach to the language and techniques of Baladi dance to take a feminist stance on the dance style known as belly dance. Participants will develop personal readings and diverse embodiments of this dance to counter questionable ideals of beauty and prejudice against non-normative bodies. Dancing beyond patriarchal models, emotions and bodies can merge and healing begin in an ecstatic celebration of individuality and being.Attention
