DUE TO UNFORTUNATE CIRCUMSTANCES, AFV EXOTIC ARTS STUDIO HAS CLOSED ON JANUARY 22ND. I will still continue to book in home/hotel parties (women only) Private 1 on 1 lessons available (women only). I am also available for wedding dance choreography for couples.
Perhaps you are not interested in using any props, chairs, or poles? Sometimes experiencing dance through your body without any apparatus is liberating.
Years ago, a student who had been taking class for 8 months decided she wanted to have her own private showcase in the studio. This student, in particular, loved to be pushed out of her comfort zone and realized during her classes that she actually loved to improvise movement versus learning choreographed dances. Her initial idea was to choreograph, choreograph, choreograph because she was experiencing a lot of emotions and changes in her life and wanted to make her showcase be cathartic. I challenged her not to choreograph anything and make the entire showcase improvised for the simple reason that she would not know what she would be feeling, or experiencing, that day of the showcase, which was to be two months away.
Improvising the entire piece allowed her to truly release and be present with herself and with each person in attendance. It was amazing!! She invited 7 of her closest friends. She moved all over the studio, she stood on the bench, she sang, she yelled, she pressed her hands into the mirror, and she sat in front of her friends and thanked them for being there. When she finished her piece, she invited everyone up to dance with her. It was such a night!
