WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Wear something you can move and be comfortable in. We will dance the whole hour, so be prepared to sweat. Common gear is yoga pants, tank tops or sports bras. For your feet: barefoot, socks or dance shoes. Hot Pot has a hard wood floor, so no street shoes please.

WHERE SHOULD I PARK?
Parking around the studio is metered and goes till 10pm. There are also garages within walking distance of the studio. You do not want to park in the lot behind the studio, as this is private parking and you will be towed.

WHAT IS UNMATA ITS?
ITS stands for Improvisational Tribal Style. This style of dance is a non verbal form of communication where groups can dance together using a specific vocabulary of movements communicating the timing and variations of the vocabulary. We like to compare Improvisational Tribal Style (ITS) to a language. When learning a new language, you have to learn the root words before forming a sentence.  Because of the similarity in learning UNMATA ITS to learning a new language, we recommend that students complete the UNMATA ITS Level 1 vocabulary before taking other levels of UNMATA ITS classes at Hot Pot Studios. For more details, check out the official ITS website.

WHAT IS UNMATA ITS?
ITS stands for Improvisational Tribal Style. This style of dance is a non verbal form of communication where groups can dance together using a specific vocabulary of movements communicating the timing and variations of the vocabulary. We like to compare Improvisational Tribal Style (ITS) to a language. When learning a new language, you have to learn the root words before forming a sentence.  Because of the similarity in learning UNMATA ITS to learning a new language, we recommend that students complete the UNMATA ITS Level 1 vocabulary before taking other levels of UNMATA ITS classes at Hot Pot Studios. For more details, check out the official ITS website.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR? Wear something you can move and be comfortable in. We will dance the whole hour, so be prepared to sweat. Common gear is yoga pants, tank tops or sports bras. For your feet: barefoot, socks or dance shoes. Hot Pot has a hard wood floor, so no street shoes please.

WHERE SHOULD I PARK? Parking around the studio is metered and goes till 10pm. There are also garages within walking distance of the studio. You do not want to park in the lot behind the studio, as this is private parking and you will be towed.

The Vamp”: Burlesque/Jazz Age Inspired Fusion:
Saturday, August 11 – 3pm to 5pm
Set to the engaging melody of Duke Ellington’s ‘Black and Tan Fantasy,’ this workshop features a vampy and coquettish choreography inspired by the roaring 20’s jazz age and burlesque performers from the 40’s and 50’s. We will specifically focus on carriage and efficiently moving through space while projecting as much personality as possible. This dance is specifically designed to bring out the theatrical aspects of performance. The music is also perfectly arranged to focus on musicality. Part of the choreography, for example, is set to the bold horns in the music and part of it connects to the metronome like back beat of the music. Imagine if Mae West, Theda Bara and Rita Hayworth’s character from “Gilda” had a love child who became a star member of the Ziegfeld Follies and you get the idea of what this piece is going for.

Accentuate.
Sunday, August 12 – 10am to 12pm
The ins and outs of faster paced tribal fusion bellydance: Isolations, posture, extension and building choreography: learn the fundamentals of faster paced tribal fusion bellydance. Strong emphasis is placed on developing a correct posture, muscle conditioning and flexibility training. Sharp articulation emphasizing movement and rhythm. We will drill twists, locks, drops, squares, omis and shimmies working to develop the muscles in the lower abs and pelvic area to create crisp, strong hip articulation. We will then take it a step further and move on to drilling these movements within different planes of space, such as level changes and experimenting with variations on the left and right sides of the body. Special emphasis placed on drop turns and drop twists. Students will learn how to create combinations and link them into short choreographies. The goal is to give students the tools to more effectively help link movements together to create their own combinations and to ultimately create a very complete performance. We will also discuss the elements of good stage presence and methods to creating a very strong performance persona.
