Guys… an open invitation for a fun dance workshop.. for a cause..hope you could join us…
hawaiian hula and tahitian dance workshop
with Anna Carbonell
Let your body move your hips gracefully to the melodic sounds of the Hawaiian music and “shake” rhythmically to the drumbeats of Tahiti. Let your heart move your hands to tell the story behind the Hawaiian lyrics and to express your own sensuality as you dance the ‘ote’a (traditional dance from Tahiti). Let your breath move the spirit within to embrace the beauty of your whole being. Anna will teach the basic footwork, hand motions, and “eha” (breath) in order to tell the story and the essence of a song.
No previous dance experience required. Please come in comfortable loose clothing during the hula workshop and bring a sarong during the Tahitian workshop. Aloha. Iorana!
sunday, march 6 | 1:00p – 2:30p
