A PLACE WHERE ONE FEELS LITTLE LIKE HOME!
For years I have had the dream of creating a fantasy dance camp. Imagine bringing together like minded students to immerse ourselves in learning, sharing, and dancing together in an organic environment.
Now it has come true! August 2022 will be the thirteen year we have presented Aziza Dreamcamps. Join me for 5 days of intensive instruction, bonfires, drumming, zilling, laughing, sweating, and celebrating. You will sleep comfortably in a converted convent located on Lake Raymond in Val Morin, Quebec.. Hike in the woods, plunge into a cool lake or sparkling swimming pool, share delicious meals, and make new dance friends.
Each Dreamcamp has a different focus. We have also invited some of my favourite international instructors to join me in the intensives. Invited master instructors include Valerick Molinary, Iza San, Sharon Kihara, Issam Houshan, Lena Helt, Bozenka, Mercedes Nieto, Azad Khan, Shahrzad, Sadie, Gamila, and Khalida. I also have loved presenting local talented dancers from Quebec and Ontario including Don Jordan, Maysam, Miryam Nunez, Zafirah, Florence, and Mayada, Technique intensives focus on getting back to the fundamentals of the dance with basic foundation technique. We work on posture and bodyline, stage presence, fluidity, isolations, improvisation, and combinations. We also delve into the arena of finger cymbals. Bring your zills on a guided hike through the woods, practicing basic patterns as we walk. During the week we concentrate on a single Oriental choreography, to better understand and explore the nuances of the music and movement, and go much deeper than in a one-time workshop. Also included are activities like crafts, games, special invited guests, video night, bonfires, and free time to round out a full experience.
Does this sound like your fantasy, too? Then please come and join us…
