Event Overview

Silk ripples like water & flows like air. It is strong, supple, sensual, and steeped in stories and history. Combined with light and movement, silk invokes dramatic magic for the human senses. Join Gaea Lady in exploring movement & dance with silk - learning specific movements, patterns, and techniques to integrate dancer and fabric together. We'll explore dynamic whips, dreamy floats, weaves, infinite recursive spins, drapes, wraps, and improvisation to ignite the senses and the creativity within. Students will dance with unweighted & weighted veils and flags- learning the basics of this specialty custom veil.

Students should bring a silk or light fabric veil, at least 4x8 feet. Students can also bring large fabric costume pieces for improvisation in class. Gaea will have a limited amount of veils available for use, borrow, and sale. 

For custom orders in advance, contact gaealady@gmail.com 

$40 (Space Limited to 10 students)
