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.

Using her decades of experience as a classical piano teacher and dancer Devi will show you how to dance to those crazy rhythms such as 6/8, 9/8, 12/8 and 10/4 WITHOUT having to alter your steps or having to create new combinations. In this lesson Devi will show you how to pull apart and group various time signatures as well as using the most appropriate speed for each time signature which will enable you to use a broader range of time signatures and musical choices for your next performance piece!

========================

STAGECRAFT CLASSIC WORKSHOP 8

Musicality: 2 hours(9-11am)

$60

-----------------------------------------------------------

In this workshop Devi will give you the tools to become a physical manifestation of the music. Learn how to listen to the phrasing and the "question and answer" of the melodies played. Devi will also take you through which movements and steps go best with different instruments ( and how they are played ) to achieve a convincing and heart warming performance.

STAGECRAFT CLASSIC WORKSHOP 9

The X factor!: 1.5 hours (11:45am- 1:15pm)

What is it exactly and how do we get it?! Devi will share with you her insight into the elusive X factor and why some performers have it and others don't. Devi will then help you to help yourself find your own personal performance style. BYO pen and paper

STAGECRAFT CLASSIC WORKSHOP 10

The art of emotive improvisation: 2 hours 15 mins (1:45-4pm)

$60

------------------------------------------------------------

In this workshop Devi will take you through a series of simple and fun exercises that will give you the tools to creatively breakdown the art of true "on the spot" improvisation whether it be as a soloist or in a group. Breaking down the process step by step we will explore musical phrasing, space and time, balance, communication, expression, expansion in movement and grace in technique. This workshop is not simply about putting the music on and letting participants "go for it". Instead Devi will give participants a step by step guide of the various aspects of improvisation and a way of tracking these points during performance. Please bring your love of music, pen and paper. Suitable for dancers of all levels and genres.
