Arm Patterns with Emalee – Spring Spectacular 2024 Workshop

Learn more about this Spring Spectacular 2024 Workshop!

Saturday, April 20

Rather than the standard "frame" position or "arms out" that we see so often, learn some variations for ways to dance with your arms and use these patterns to accentuate your movements to create a more interesting dance.

All Levels workshop in Middle Eastern dance.

In this workshop, you will learn a variety of arm patterns and positions to go with dance moves. 

Instructor Experience:
Since 2005 Emalee has been performing on a variety of stage sizes where space was limited or stages were large and had plenty of space to fill, so she has many years of experience implementing different ways to use arms in a variety of ways, patterns, and spaces.
