Tango meets Oriental with passion and elegance.
Silvia Salamanca brings you an original choreography full of elegance, sensuality, passion and romance.
In this workshop we will incorporate the captivating energy of the tango posture and moves to the sensuality and beauty of bellydance.
Every combination will be explained and practiced in detail and we will build up a routine where feelings are set free!
Please note that the music for the choreography is "La Cumparsita" by Mario Kirlis. (Different from the song used in the promotional video.)
Silvia Salamanca is an internationally acclaimed performer, choreographer and instructor from Mallorca, Spain. A life-long dancer, she graduated at the age of nineteen as a major in ballet and performed professionally as a modern dancer in major Europe festivals with the contemporary dance company of the University of Barcelona.
She started her career as a belly dancer in 2001, when realizing the enormous benefits that this art-form brings to women in both body and soul. In her own studio, she keeps observing how women can get closer to their self identity and discover oneself in a new level, increasing self-esteem, and getting deeply in touch with the feminine essence in their soul through bellydance.
As a natural evolution in her journey, Silvia discovered tribal fusion in the USA and combined it with a deep research into her own cultural roots: Spanish gypsy and Arabic. Hence with her work in the field of Zambra Mora (spanish gypsy-oriental dance fusion) Silvia gained international recognition and is currently invited to teach workshops and perform as a headliner in major festivals world-wide. Silvia is also known for her work dancing with swords, which she feels depicts the strength of women.
Silvia is also the director of Shunyata Belly Dance, a nationally awarded tribal fusion company and a proud member of Urban Hips, Houston's premiere ITS troupe.
