Drum Solo Drama

Aug 7th - Sept 4th

 

This 4 week AROnline series is composed of 4 individual classes that will focus on technique, drills and choreography. By the end of the 4 weeks you will have learned an entire choreography full of drama, sass, technique and adrenaline! Amanda Rose will go section by section breaking down and drilling basic to advance technique and then putting it all together in a high energy drum solo choreography. A wide range of shimmies and shimmy layers will be taught, as well as traveling, isolations and sass sass sass! Up to the challenge? Amanda Rose will make sure you have many different level options for each section of choreography, allowing you to increase or soften the difficulty level depending on what you want!

You will have access to all 4 weeks of class for the entire run of the series! Re-run the technique, practice the choreography, add more demanding layers as you go and all in your own time from anywhere in the world! Want feedback on how you're doing?? Amanda Rose offered technique and choreography feedback options to make sure you get the most out of the series! 

Personal Feedback Option

Personal feedback has become a highly popular option with Amanda Rose Online, allowing students to get the most out of their long distance online study! This feedback will entail technique critique specifically towards the technique used in this choreography, general technique suggestions, evaluation of strengths and weakness, posture, application, timing, drills and ideas for skill development! This is initially offered in a 2 week package, Video 1 focusing on Week 1 & 2 technique and choreography, and Video 2 focusing on Week 3 & 4 technique and choreography.  Video send in dates are August 21st and Sept 4th. You can send in your videos before or after, but the feedback will be returned at this time. 

This tool is extremely valuable, not only do you get the class, basic and advanced technique, combination application and breakdown, you also will get direct feedback on your own performance of the choreography, an invaluable aspect many online classes don't offer! You can purchase additional Feedback Critiques if you wish, or if you do not choose this option and later decide you want it, you can add it on but will not get the reduced package price offered during initial registration.

INSTRUCTION PHILOSOPHY 

As an instructor my goal is to expand the mind of each of my students, to challenge them with technique that will set them free and teach them skills to allow their own artistic dreams come to fruition. It is never my goal to create dancers that look or dance like me, but to help each student and artist accomplish their own goals by giving them tools that will make the path to their own artistic expression more tangible. I appreciate all styles within the Middle Eastern dance genre, as well as other dance forms, and my desire is to help people express themselves how they wish to be seen regardless of style. I am a firm believer in understanding the roots and origin of movement styles, especially those based in culture and society, and then building your own expression with artistic integrity based in knowledge and thoughtful approach.
