Over the weekend, a dance extravaganza covering numerous dance and interesting workshops took place at the Bellydance Discovery studios to raise funds for the recent disaster in Japan.
Minna Issho or Everybody Together was organized by a group of volunteers in association with Give.sg and Bellydance Discovery with the idea of bringing everyone together in dance and all things inspired by Japan and return that inspiration to those affected by the earthquakes and tsunami.
The Dance Buffet was a day dance extravaganza covering over 15 forms of dance and numerous interesting workshops, with lots of fun & a good workout. What participants were in for was within a day to try out as many classes as they want. Not only the participants are encouraged to dance and exercise,
It wasn't all just dancing or learning different forms of dance as they got to meet people from different walks of life and discover new things and art forms. The duration for each class was about 45mins so it was a bit like a massive workshop with people walking in a out of dance studios at Bellydance Discovery within the full day.
And among some of the classes that were happening were…..
Korean pop, bellydancing, Yoga and even a make up workshop
If you liked the movie Burlesque then you might have had fun learning the dance itself as Yuki led the class
There was also a sharing session on Eco Fashion by our very own Elliott Danker as he spoke on his Eco label, ED-08 and answered various questions about organic cotton and doing your part to save the Earth.
The day ended off with a Flamenco dance session, it was definately quite the challenge but when done right it can be such a sexy art form.
