This summercamp is suitable for dancers of all styles: oriental, fusion and fcbd style dancers! :)
For four days, the Town Hall Square and the surroundings in Tallinn Old Town will become a flourishing Hanseatic city.

For over 10 years Müstika Studio dancers have been performing there and we would like you all to join us!

This workshop is paired with the musicality and arabic rhythms workshop, as knowledge of arabic rhythms is necessary to be able to differentiate rhythms while dancing.

?Registration: [email protected] ?
LOCATION of all workshops: Müstika Studio Tatari 64, Tallinn, Estonia
NB! Spots to every choreography staging project are limited as the stage is quite small.
NB! You can also learn choreographies without performing them, but in this case, please let us know beforehand. Because the spots to perform are limited as the stage is quite small. That means, choosing to learn a choreography does not force you to perform with the group, if you feel insecure or you choose to learn choreo for your own personal use. :)

About costuming:
You will need to bring your own costume. You will need only 1 main costume, only some details can change depending on the choreography. Main parts will be: pantaloons, skirt, coin bra, coin belt, hip scarf, vest. You will need “Ballerina” shoes for walking in the old town, but can be changed into dance shoes for stage. Please bring a warmer veil, dupata or poncho to cover yourself while walking through the old town. Overall look is old style and or tribal belly dance. There is no separate backstage in old town, so we will already go dressed up through the town :) Please bring a folkloric or old looking bag for your personal items, water bottle etc. Some costuming parts can be rented as well. Please write to us in advance if you are missing some elements and need to rent or buy something. We will also make FB group and we will help you with costuming details :)
