Did you ever dream of dancing like Esmeralda, tambourine in hand and feet flying in the air, while moving hips and shoulders and being carried away by the music? Well...this is your chance!
With more passion than ever before, we will incorporate a tambourine into our fiery inspired fusion bellydance!
In this instructional I deliver a creation of my own, where you will learn the basics of dancing with a tambourine, infuse your hip moves with the flavor of the eastern European romani dances and learn the combinations that will build into a routine that lifts the heart and warms the room!
Silvia Salamanca is an internationally acclaimed performer, choreographer and instructor from Mallorca, Spain. A life-long dancer, she graduated at the age of nineteen as a major in ballet and performed professionally as a modern dancer in major Europe festivals with the contemporary dance company of the University of Barcelona.
She started her career as a belly dancer in 2001, when realizing the enormous benefits that this art-form brings to women in both body and soul. In her own studio, she keeps observing how women can get closer to their self identity and discover oneself in a new level, increasing self-esteem, and getting deeply in touch with the feminine essence in their soul through bellydance.
As a natural evolution in her journey, Silvia discovered tribal fusion in the USA and combined it with a deep research into her own cultural roots: Spanish gypsy and Arabic. Hence with her work in the field of Zambra Mora (spanish gypsy-oriental dance fusion) Silvia gained international recognition and is currently invited to teach workshops and perform as a headliner in major festivals world-wide. Silvia is also known for her work dancing with swords, which she feels depicts the strength of women.
Silvia is also the director of Shunyata Belly Dance, a nationally awarded tribal fusion company and a proud member of Urban Hips, Houston's premiere ITS troupe.
