In July 2018 TribalDiva Belly Dance Company had the pleasure of hosting April Rose from Austin, Texas for a Weekend of Workshops & Choreography Intensive in Christchurch, New Zealand.
In addition to teaching fantastic technique workshops, challenging and interesting choreographies and a decent helping of dance theory in the Choreography Intensive April also shared some of her knowledge around the history and cultural aspects of belly dance, drawing on her Masters Degree studies in belly dance history, choreographic method and a myriad of dance styles.
We were treated to an hour long interactive lecture on issues of cultural appropriation, which was also live-streamed on facebook live. If you missed out on that at the time it is also permanently available on the TribalDiva Belly Dance Company facebook page below.
