0S3A0841Why choose fan veils..
Join me and lets rock that prop through the art of fan veils!
This beautiful prop is a joy to dance with, floating through the air it is a stunning extension to your dance. Learning to use fan veils can give you an exciting new dimension to your performance and is a great way to create a whole new act for your dance repertoire. Mastering  fan veils can be a truly expressive way to add a light, delicate ethereal quality to your dance. In contrast the fan can be worked to create a strong, powerful, fierce or even flirty characteristic, it simply depends on the music you choose. Fan veils are a great way to work out the arms and core of the body as well as gaining greater flexibility and flow through your dance.

What to expect in class..0S3A0817
In this workshop I will explain all the tips and tricks for handling your fan veils followed by a series of intensive drills using both open and closed fan techniques to get you comfortable with the handling of your fans. Once we have developed our understanding of the fan veil and the way in which it works we will practice our new moves through mini combinations.  Some foot work will be incorporated to demonstrate to students how we successfully layer the fan veil over our dance routine. Those students with some previous fan veil experience will have the opportunity to execute some basic turns for that extra challenge. 
I would love for you to join me on this brand new beginners workshop to explore the art of the Chinese fan veil. This 1.5 hour class is all about working together from the ground up, having some fun and developing our dance skills and self expression with this beautiful prop.
