Mat Jacob Adelaide – April 22 & 23

April 22 @ 11:00 am - April 23 @ 4:00 pm

Mat Jacob Workshop Series – Adelaide, April 22 & 23 2017
The amazing Mat Jacob is with us again in Adelaide bringing her unique style, amazing technique and superb sense of fun.
I still remember the oooo’s and ahhhh’s as Mat took to the stage and shared with us her incredible talents. Let’s do it again Adelaide and
join us for a weekend of learning Mat Jacob style!

About Mat
Mat’s dance experience is diverse and extensive. She fell in love with Tribal Fusion Belly Dance when she first saw RACHEL BRICE move.
Since then, Mat has with much passion and dedication followed Miss Brice along with other muses she discovered on the way. She is forever grateful to her and also to MIRA BETZ, ZOE JAKES, MARDI LOVE, ILLAN RIVIERE, AMY SIGIL for their much appreciated presence and support since the beginning. More recently she has been inspired and guided by PINY and the ORCHIDACEAE family.

She thinks her students should also all be mentioned because they are just as important as her teachers.

Saturday Workshops – Suitable for all dancers of all styles

Saturday April 22nd — 11am to 1pm
Dance it Out!
2 hours

This choreography is a joyous elixir full of surprises! In our large pot, we will mix ingredients of traditional tribal fusion as well as others coming straight out of Mat’s laboratory. We will go as far as possible in the dance keeping a balance between the decomposition of movement to reach a good technical execution and the simple pleasure of dancing.

Saturday April 22nd – 2pm to 4pm
Quiet Force
2 hours

Let’s slow down for this one. All vocabulary taught is about taking our time to be slow and strong. Those two qualities are, in my opinion, the signature of Tribal Fusion Bellydance. Moving like water, with no breaks and with that boneless quality, in complete fluidity. All the body is involved, all the muscles, the cells, the veins, the joints, arms, hips, torso, head. Let’s go on a meditative ride together in the land of slow power. * Excellent for dancers of all styles to learn the technique of slow movement.
