Can't keep good loonies down. Yes, we are back, or at least one of us is back. Melissa Voodoo will be teaching a workshop this month that's all about the crazy stuff I'm learning. For those of you who don't know, I'm an anatomy nerd, I've been a personal trainer for close on 10 years, taught Pilates teachers how to be teachers at one of the most technical schools in NYC, and let more professional certifications expire than I know what to do with. And now I'm studying to become a movement therapist. It just keeps getting geekier.
And with everything I study, I keep thinking , "This would be SO GREAT for bellydancers!
So, find out how all this crazy knowledge can benefit YOU! Come to class on March 24th, 1-3. Pre-pay the ridiculously low price of $30 for 2 hours, or pay $35 at the door.
This workshop is sponsored by the wonderful Autumn Ward-- find out more about her detailed dance work at www.naturalbeautybellydance.com.

Here's some more info:
The word "somatics" is derived from "soma", a living body. Proprioception is the sixth sense-- the awareness of where your body is in space. Learn how to use these concepts and more to improve your fluidity, creativity, and ability to dance.
Melissa Voodoo, co-founder of the Voodoo Sisters, personal trainer, Pilates teacher trainer, and student of somatic movement therapy will show you how to get in touch with your body's ability to move in entirely new ways, using Body-Mind Centering, Martha Eddy Technique, Laban Movement Analysis, Bartenieff Fundamentals, and more. As you link your mind and your body more closely together, your dance will become more expressive, more reflective of the emotions running through you and the story you want to tell onstage.
The workshop is Saturday, March 24th, 1-3 at 440 Studios. Cost will be $30 with advance registration with Melissa via Facebook or PayPal; $35 at the door. A class series may follow-- watch this space for full details
So, do I see you on the 24th?
