Discordia and Bellymuse present Donna Mejia and The World of Bellydance

Donna Mejia Intensive and Show – September 25-26, 2010
Greenville, SC

To see Donna dance:

"In addition to the awesome workshops by Donna, Saturday evening plan to attend the first of many professional Belly Dance shows hosted by BellyMuse and Discordia at the Warehouse Theater in downtown Greenville. This show will not only feature the outstanding talent of Donna Mejia but will also include world famous talent such as Onca from the Mezmer Society, Asharah, Natalie Brown, Mahsati Janan, Asim, Ananda Dance Co. and your very own Bellymuse and Discordia.

This workshop re-visions the practice of fixed feet and unmoving isolations to an exploration of dynamic traveling progressions. Donna Mejia will present a stimulating class involving strong cardio/pulmonary engagement, firestorm drills, short moving combinations across the floor, and bi-directional/asymmetrical use of the limbs. This workshop may be best suited for dancers with at least 2 consistent years of experience in Near Eastern dance. However, adjustments and accommodations will be plentiful for participants with less experience. Athletic attire will work best, and optional footwear (flat dance shoes) may be helpful for those with sensitive feet."
