About Kami Liddle

Kami Liddle has been a student of dance since she was 4 years old including ballet, tap, jazz, modern and hip hop. After a brief interlude as a musician, Kami reunited with dance when she was 18 years old when she began to study cabaret style belly dance until she found her passion in improvisational belly dance via Fat Chance Belly Dance. Kami holds a B.A. in Art with a Minor in Dance from the University of Nevada, Reno.

In 2005, Kami auditioned and was invited to join the Bellydance Superstars (BDSS), a professionally touring belly dance company produced by music industry legend Miles Copeland. Beginning as a principal dancer, Kami soon became a soloist and contributing choreographer. In 2007, she became the Director of the ‘Tribal Superstars,’ the tribal fusion belly dance ensemble of BDSS.

In 2010 Kami decided to leave BDSS in order to pursue her art as a solo artist and work collaboratively with dancer and musician Zoe Jakes and Beats Antique, a musical group that incorporates live dance and performance in their multimedia shows and music videos. Kami toured the U.S. with Beats Antique for 2 years and is also featured in their music videos “Revival” and “Cat Skillz.”
Kami decided to leave Beats Antique in 2012 to meet the continued request for additional solo performances has been hosted in over 20 countries as a performer and teacher since.

In order to fulfill her artistic vision and use her abilities to the fullest, Kami decided to return to her love of group choreography. Selecting five colleagues from an array of the Bay Area’s leading belly dance companies, Kami formed Gold Star Dance Company in early 2013. Together they set out to combine this young and constantly evolving dance style with elements of jazz, modern, hip hop and classical ballet. They have performed on for numerous events including the main stage at the festival Lightning in a Bottle, for Lucas Films at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco, and 2 West Coast tours with Bay Area based band Junk Parlor. Gold Star Dance Company and Kami Liddle’s choreography is featured in Junk Parlor’s music video “Si Tu Savais” and Kami is featured on percussion on their latest album “Melusina.”

About Samantha Emanuel

True to the spirit of American Tribal Style® , Samantha’s work combines technique gleaned from her studies with the creators of the genre in the USA with that of her own self taught background in the UK. Elegant and classic, strong in carriage: Fusing Victorian and Tribal costume aesthetic, hip hop/modern dance movement strangeness, a respectful take on World Folk dances and professional versatility.

UK-born Samantha had a unique introduction to belly dance in 2005 after she quit her job on a building site to practise the art of belly dance at home. Two years later she was spotted by The Bellydance Superstars and toured the world as the troupe’s only British member, featuring on several BDSS DVDs. After four years with the show she decided to go solo and has been crisscrossing the globe full-time ever since, performing and instructing intensive workshops in over 40 countries. Working both solo and collaboratively with artists at the top of the genre. Her dedication to the art form and it’s power to connect people from all continents keep her on the move.

Samantha, AKA Vagabond Princess, is a committed instructor and performer, well known for her fun and engaging style and accessible approach to teaching. Her workshops are designed to inspire all dancers – from total beginners to dance instructors and aspiring professionals.

Samantha is American Tribal Style® Certified and the first Tribal Fusion instructor to receive the FatChanceBellyDance® ATS General Studio Teacher Certification. She is a qualified Level 3 Mat Pilates instructor VTCV City and Guilds. She has also explored Theatre performance skills at The London International School of Performing Arts (LISPA).

Program

Dance Synthesis Intensives©

Synthesis: Greek, from syntithenai to put together, from syn- + tithenai to put, place.
This intensive is introductory/improver level, and spaces are limited.

To synthesise (fuse) is the theme.

We will work with Pilates, Yoga and Floor Barre exercises to build strength and balance. Tribal Fusion technique is the focus with sequences included to put the technique to practice. Imagery will be used to help assimilate movement. All designed to enhance your dance skill set. There will be improvisation sections included: Listen to your body, move with ease and find freedom in the subtle nuances, inner rhythm and flow. A great opportunity to work deeply in a small group with plenty of one to one attention!

The two weekends will be connected. You will have the opportunity to go away practice homework tasks, then return to further develop your dance ability, receiving feedback from Samantha. Practice progressions to inspire you on your dance journey will be added during the second weekend. It is not obligatory to attend both intensives but it is encouraged! 

 

Q&A Tearoom and Group Dinner

Time to get to know each other, ask questions, exchange experiences and of course also to get comfy and relaxed – we will have earned it!

✩ Q&A Tearoom as a relaxed Apéro at the Studio right after our dance training – Time to ask questions and discuss with Samantha and your fellow dance colleagues

✩ Group Dinner at the Libanese Restaurant – shared time and a delicious buffet (Setting off from the Studio at 7pm or meeting directly at the restaurant shortly after)
