Stagecraft with Devi Mamak
Time & Location
About the Event
In this brand new intensive Devi will guide you through step by step on how to become the best dancer you can be!
This intensive will include how to get the most out of every movement, the importance of stillness, foot and arm patterns and how to keep track of them, musicality including various ways to break down some of the most challenging time signatures so you will have the confidence to use them, fun and new ways to use your zills, improvisation, how to choreograph and more!
Devi's intention with this new intensive is for every dancer at every level, whether they are a performer or not to be able to unlock the door on some of the more challenging aspects of being a dancer and change the way we think when coming up against some of these issues. As well as a brand new outlook on your dance Devi wants you to find your own unique style and she will help you to bring that out into your dance whether it be in the comfort of your own home, the classroom or on the stage.
The first module of STAGECRAFT is the classic module and is the foundation for all style modules of STAGECRAFT.
DAY 1 - Saturday 18th May 2019
STAGECRAFT CLASSIC WORKSHOP 1
Technique: 3 hours (10am - 1pm).
In this workshop Devi will show you her method for beautiful arms and hands, hips, torso work and layering. The focus for this workshop will be on getting the most out of your movement, working from your centre and dancing from the inside out rather than focusing on technique from a specific style.
STAGECRAFT CLASSIC WORKSHOP 2
Construction of movement: 3 hours (2 - 5pm)
In this workshop Devi will share with you a step by step process of the classic foot and arm patterns which you can mix and match to create your own movement. We will also look at the importance of weight shift, resistance and release, movement and stillness to give your dance interest and dynamics.
DAY 2 - Sunday 19th May 2019
STAGECRAFT CLASSIC WORKSHOP 3
Innovative Formations : 2.5 hours (10am - 12:30pm)

STAGECRAFT CLASSIC WORKSHOP 4
Dance dimensions: 3 hours (1:30pm- 4:30pm)
In this workshop you will learn how to get the most out of your staging and movement. This will include spins and turns, travelling, directional changes and levels .
