It's a prop? It's an instrument? It's a distraction? It's another layer of activity?
It's all of the above AND a great way to refine your timing and awareness of the energy in your hands.
Finger cymbals have existed since ancient times and their presence on a performing belly dancer has waxed and waned over the decades of the dance in the US.
But they are always enchanting. And they are always an excellent source of training.
You need NO EXPERIENCE for this workshop. You don't even need cymbals since we will have several sets of "loaners" at the studio.
Come take part in one of the many "extensions" of the belly dance world if you are new. Brush up on an old skill if you aren't. And watch for choreographies that incorporate the use of finger cymbals in the new year!
Live and Zoom participation is welcome.
1.5 hour workshop
