Saturday 12:30–14:30 | DanceCraft® Inspired Choreo: Narod with Anji

Location: Studio Pittoreska

To an epic Balkan trap song, we create a powerful, earthy choreography whose special charm lies in its expressive movements. Slow-flowing short phrases are contrasted with accentuated old-school moves from Zoe Jakes' DanceCraft® vocabulary, creating a varied choreography that bridges the gap between tradition and modernity.

Movement variations for different levels of difficulty are offered.

Saturday 15:00–17:00 | Combos, Pathways & Layerings with Anji

Location: Studio Pittoreska

This workshop is for anyone who is interested in new moves and beautiful movement material and/or wants to give their creativity a boost. We will learn various foot patterns, beautiful, flowing arm patterns and simple but effective isolation patterns, which we will first rehearse individually and then layer on top of each other in various combinations. This results in beautiful new combos and also one or two new physical challenges. Feel free to use the sequences for your own creations!

Anji is a Fusion Bellydance teacher, choreographer and performer based in Freiburg, Germany. Her artistic focus and dedication lies on the West-Coast Bellydance scene and styles, where she continues to train yearly.

Sunday 10:00–14:00 | Liquid Fusion Mini-Intensive with Melli

Get a little insight of Melli's Liquid Fusion Dance Intensive to deepen your liquid flow and explore new ways to wave inside the body. During this especially for Switzerland designed Intensive we will focus on Biomechanics, waving basics combined with bellydance, specific exercises that will help make your body move smoother and of course her favorite liquid combos. The intensive is open level, and she will give higher level options for more advanced dancers. Lets flow together!

Melli Sarina is a worldwide known fusion style bellydance teacher and performer. She is famous for her water like and controlled movements, known as her liquid fusion style and her very well structured and sports therapeutics based teaching. While touring as a teacher she constantly tries to increase her knowledge in sports therapeutics and dance skills especially in waving. In 2022 she created her own educational format called „Liquid Fusion Intensive“ to give students a chance to not only understand and work with the body effectively but also to give them the possibility to find their own liquid dance style.

Sunday 14:30–16:30 | SEAMLESS with Olga Meos

Location: TBA

This class is about dancing with harmonious «seamless» transitions between movements, as well as how to transfer body weight with ease and naturalness. It will provide you the opportunity to develop your flexibility, coordination and technical skills, as well as enrich your dance aesthetic.

The transfer of body weight is a basic element in dance and allows you to create dynamic and spectacular movements. We will learn how to properly distribute body weight, make smooth and seamless transitions between different positions, and transfer weight from one leg to the other.

We will also work on musical expressiveness. We will explore the meaning of musicality in the transitions between movements. You will learn to feel the rhythm and phrasing of the music, adapting your transitions to musical highlights.

What about accommodation and parking in St. Gallen?

The city centre is very small and everything is within walking distance. There are several car parks in the city centre, but they are relatively expensive. The outdoor parking spaces in the neighbourhood are cheaper, but usually limited in time. You can buy daily or monthly permits for unlimited parking in certain zones. You can find more information here

Hotels are relatively expensive in Switzerland and it's a good idea to check out Airbnb options. Dancers stayed at the EH Apartments Merkur (formerly TouchBed City Apartments) before, which they found highly recommendable. To help you find your way around St. Gallen, we have created a map of all sorts of places we found useful. 

The number of spots is limited. As soon as the event is sold out, we will open a waiting list. Please contact us via info@pittoreska.com. The waiting list works on a first come, first served basis.
