Dalia Carella- Dunyavi Roma Dance and Turkish Roman Workshop
Saturday April 20, 2024
This workshop is in two parts:
Turkish Roman Dance – In this class we will be focusing strongly on how to dance to Turkish 9/8 Romani Karsilama Traditional Rhythms. This rhythm is all about the organic feeling that is sometimes challenging for dancers around the world. Dalia’s technique simplifies this dance and you will be able to assimilate the hand gesturing, foot work and feel much easier. The focus in this class is learning how to dance with using the pelvic and intricate foot work and enjoying working with all the Turkish Romani hand gesturing. Skirts are not required but highly suggest a shawl to accentuate the pelvic region.
Vintage Dunyavi Roma Dance – Dunyavi means “World”. This is one of Dalia’s signature art forms that she created in 1979, the name and the movement!. This style blends Turkish, Spanish and Indian Dance into one form. Turkish Roman hand gesturing and foot work are combined with Flamenco arms , skirt work and posturing and Indian hand gesturing and turns. She is the originator of this form and teaches how to fuse these traditional dances into a fiery and intense art form. Dalia will be using 9/8 Karsilama Rhythm in this workshop. She also will educate the student/dancer how to count in this rhythm and feel comfortable in dancing to it. Skirts required.
