Live on the Edge with Sword ITS!

With the rising popularity of UNMATA’s ITS, this addictive and uniquely collaborative style of fusion belly dance has seen an explosion of avid fans on an international level. This uniquely modern dance form is based in group-synchronized improvisation, utilizing a shared movement vocabulary. Cues, moves, transitions, and leadership theory will all be explored and drilled extensively, alongside universal “stall” moves and Luna movement combinations. Watch your spatial awareness, confidence and connectivity with the dancers around you increase exponentially through this improvisational form of dance.

This is considered an advanced beginner/intermediate class. Proficiency in basic moves will be required (as in working knowledge, not perfection!) in vertical hip figure 8’s, 3/4 hip shimmies, and undulations.

New since 2018, we will be incorporating Swords into our ITS vocabulary!! You will need to bring your own sword, preference is for a sabre style with no hilt hand guard.

Not sure if this is the class for you? Just contact Saskia. No experience but interested in an Improvisational Tribal Style class? Let the instructor and studio know!

Warning, this dance form is not only great exercise but also highly addictive!!

Since 2006, Saskia has been developing her own combination based ITS vocabulary, after first discovering Tribal Fusion Style dance in 2001. With mentors like Amy Sigil of UNMATA and Gypsy Caravan’s Paulette Rees-Denis, and influences ranging from Egyptian dance, hip hop, flamenco, Bollywood and Fosse jazz, the saucy stylings of Luna ITS are guaranteed to please.
