GATES TO FUSION IN PARIS – Registration now open!
In late summer, or to be more precise from September 3rd – 6th 2015, another “Gates to Fusion” Weekend with Anasma and Linda Faoro takes place in Paris. The registration is now open and you can save money as early bird (up to 170 Euro!). Special guests at this weekend are Tjarda van Straten and Piny Orchidaceae.
About their history: Anasma and Linda Faoro met in 2009 at the Bellyfusions Festival, Paris. A relation of trust and dialogue build up over time, and in 2010, both being recognized internationally for their unique and innovative styles, Anasma and Linda toured together in the US. In 2012, Linda Faoro's Traveling Dance School and Anasma World Citizen Dance School teamed up on a regular basis to launch a common training for Oriental Fusion with weekly classes and week-end intensives.
After four years of artistic collaboration, the multi-facetted dancers and choreographers decided to co-found the International Urban Bellydance Collective in 2013. Their idea is that artists from all over the world can bring in their unique perspective on Urban Bellydance Fusions during exclusive choreographic encounters.
