Bellydance Fusion with Argenta (Anna and Eloise) – Monday 4.30pm
A fun class combining classic Belly dance training and techniques with hardcore Western music and performance styles such as Burlesque, Cabaret and Industrial dance to perform dramatic choreographies at some of the most unique events around Auckland and Hamilton.
Anna has been learning classic bellydancing for many years, and is an experienced dance teacher, show director, presenter, choreographer and performer. She also performs in circus (acrobat, strongwoman, whips and fire), Medieval performance arts, stage combat and martial arts. Her favourite thing is to get people believing in themselves as performers and getting them onstage.
Eloise (Anna’s daughter) joined her as a dance partner about 5 years ago, and brought with her the music, costuming, characters and drama that has become the signature style of the duo known as Argenta. She has been performing since she was 4 years old, in Medieval performance, and from there to bellydance, circus acts, and industrial dance.
Argenta (https://www.facebook.com/Silvercircle.Argenta/) has been performing since then at wildly different events such as Queerlesque, Silver Circle Production circus stage and cabaret shows, various bellydance shows, Miss Cadaver (Hamilton), and Into Oblivion. We also perform singly (Anna as Mistress Martial, Eloise as Cyberkitten) and with others we get onstage or into fun dress-up photoshoots as the Mistresses of Mayhem.
This class is intended for keen people (men and women, any level of fitness) who want to start dancing, or gain some new dance skills to add to their repertoire, or want to work out new muscles, and all who want to get onstage. We intend to do a show at the end of each term. We like heavy dramatic music, dark or quirky themes, breaking the rules, having a laugh, challenging people to find their strengths, and connecting people to the amazing world of performance arts in Auckland.
