Workshop Topics

Workshop Topics

Angelique is available to teach workshops on a variety of topics.  A small breakdown is listed below.  Contact me for more information. 

Certification Workshops  (3-5 days) 

Angelique is authorized to teach Salimpour Format Level 1 and 2 workshops as well as offer testing.  This is a great opportunity to bring the format to your backyard, and prepare yourself for higher level workshops with Suhaila herself! 


Salimpour Technique and Combos (3-6 hours) 

This technique class focuses on drills to help improve your speed, stamina, and precision in bellydance technique.  We will then work on applying those drills to various combo's so you can see the practical nature of how they can be used.  

Contrast and Dynamics (2-3 hours) 

Listening to a monotone speaker is not very engaging.  The same could be said for dance.  In this workshop we will talk about adding contrast to our movement - when, why, how...  I will give you some examples to work with and you will also create and demonstrate your own!  This is a fun workshop that will fundamentally change your relationship with movement.


Veil Technique and Combo's (2-3 hours) 

Veil can be used in a variety of ways, as an entrance to a classic piece, as a midsection number in a 70's set, oras an expression of its own.  It can be used in a soft, flow way, or can be used percussively.  In this workshop we will dive into a variety of applications and settings in which to use the veil. We will discuss different fabrics and shapes, and how that affects what we can do with them.  We will work on ways to discard the veil, and for those a little more advanced, finger cymbals can be included.  

Finger Cymbal Technique (2-6 hours) 

The Salimpour Format is known for its robust finger cymbal work. With over 78 defined patterns, it is the most comprehensive cymbal program in the world. In this workshop we will work finger cymbal patterns, R and L hand dominant (why would you do that?), syncopation, cross over patterns, clicks, rings, and so much more.  

Arms and Lines (2-3 hours)

Having great bellydance technique is a must for what we do, but equally important is making sure that the frame that surrounds it is strong and expressive.  In this workshop, we will work on finger and hand technique, arm positions, how the arms connect and project from the core, frames and shapes to accentuate movement, as well as arm positions that denote emotion and movement.  Beautiful arm work is the little spice that can propel a dance from ordinary, into something spectacular.
