GUEST WORKSHOP: Upper Body Expression with Rosa Noreen


Saturday, January 23rd at 4:00-5:30pm

Saturday, January 23rd at 4:00-5:30pm

Draw your audience into your world, whether you’re projecting to the far corners of a theater or dancing in an intimate space. Learn to use your upper body to project emotion both facing the audience and when turned away. Using dance technique and non-verbal theatrical concepts, we’ll explore the ways our belly dance movements of the ribcage, shoulders, neck, and arms can be used deliberately to bring a special dimension to your dancing.

Rosa Noreen founded the Grace Academy to help dancers add depth and dimension so they grow in confidence to take their places on stage and in the world. Her instructional videos, coaching programs, and unique workshops have enabled dancers around the world to slow down and revel in the moment. Based in Portland, Maine, she teaches belly dance and adult ballet classes online and at her studio, Bright Star World Dance.
