DJ Amar – Mastering Your Mix
(music mixing workshop for dancers)
Learn how to make an impressive sounding mix for your next performance using industry standard state of the art software that you can download free. With a few simple steps you can adjust bass, midrange and treble frequencies; cross-fade one track into the next or edit a track down to just the portions you need; adjust the volume on one song if it is noticeably lower or higher than another; add layers using beats and ambient melodies from other songs. This workshop will give an overview of key features and shortcuts to get yourself started, show you how to edit a track, use the fade in and out feature, add a second track, and make a mix using 3 songs with one piece of music overlayed on another so you can learn how to mix a continuous set with smooth transitions for your performances.
Sherri Wheatley – Combos and Transitions
Combos and Transitions: Learn interesting new combinations that really emphasize the “fusion” in tribal fusion bellydance. Develop techniques to make your combinations and choreography less predictable by utilizing different planes of space and exploring varied staging options. Strong emphasis is also placed on creating interesting transitions between combinations to make choreography more varied. Mini “workshop within the workshop” will consist of several exercises that will help dancers connect to their inner muses and learn effective techniques to generate new choreography. Workshop will conclude with a choreography composed of the various combinations and transitions we will learn in class.
Workshops, Hosted by ARIELLAH, will be held at Ariellah’s studio in Oakland.
