Everybody has a story
Make that: countless stories
And a freedom
To express any of those
One at a time or all at once
To be loud, To be gentle
To be sexy, subtle, strange
To be uncertain, Wild, Playful, Focused
To be REAL
To use intellect, emotion, and muscle
To find your voice, And tell your story
I am Karolina Lux
Neo Bellydance is my story
Street and club styles [like tutting, waacking, and vogueing]
Contemporary and jazz
Theater and character
It’s a story of owning different aspects of expression in art and life
Of Passion being greater than fear
Neo Bellydance is
Alignment, Technique, Cross-training, Theatrical Expression, Musicality, Choreography
Studying and honoring the roots of the styles we use and then creating fresh ways of moving forward with them.
In neo belly dance you will
Drill deep, muscular belly rolls and Intricate hip locks, With complex arm patterns, Elegant lines, Character, Footwork, spins, Listen more deeply to the music...
And more bravely and articulately tell your own story
Belly dance re-defined
ABOUT CLASSES: Karolina Lux has trained in traditional Middle Eastern and North African dance, as well as fusion belly dance styles, for 15 years with teachers from around the world. All styles that she integrates into her teaching she honors as individual styles with unique roots and heritage, incorporates that in the education she shares, and pushes the boundaries with passion and dedication to make fresh, new shapes, feelings, and stories in dance.
In Neo Bellydance, cultural history of styles will be taught, leading into proper and safe technique, alignment and strengthening, musicality, and finally choreography. Class will move fast but questions are welcome. All levels, genders, and genres of dancer are welcome. Belly dance is an ancient art form with powerful shapes and muscular expressions...Neo Bellydance honors that history and is eager to see what fresh ideas can come from belly dance in this current generation, in theaters, music video, and the dance and music industry at large!
WHAT TO WEAR: Shoes are fine. Bare feet are also welcome. Something that makes you feel amazing, comfortable, and want to sweat hard. It's ideal if I can see your torso area, so bras or crop tops are great. Low-rise pants are best, but come what you feel best in!
