Join us for this introductory, all levels intensive. DanceCraft, Zoe Jakes’ format, starts with the Diamond key, which represents our Foundation. Just like Diamonds, our skills don’t start out spectacular and polished; but with enough strength, pressure, dedication, sweat and time, something special arises. This intensive is an opportunity to study the fundamental movements and shapes of the format, and to gain perspective of where the training ultimately leads. We will be exploring the roots of Zoe's stylization and influences, while using this prep course to gain an understanding of the fundamentals of Tribal Fusion, DanceCraft style. ____________________________ PLEASE NOTE: -This is a DanceCraft Preparatory series, so while Zoe is allowing folks to take the first one separately if they choose, this is considered a mini-intensive. The individual classes do not have separate descriptions. -Parts 2 and 3 must be taken together, unless you have previously completed one or more levels of DanceCraft. ____________________________ MORE ABOUT ZOE JAKES & DANCECRAFT A versatile and extremely well-rounded performer, Zoe Jakes has developed an instruction style all her own and is a popular touring instructor, her workshops regularly selling out.Currently Zoe Jakes is touring with her band Beats Antique, a group that has 6 albums and hundreds of live shows under their belt. http://zoejakes.com/about-zoe/ In 2015 Zoe launched her own tribal fusion belly dance format, DanceCraftTM.
