Join Gaea Lady in exploring just how to dance with these fabrics - learning specific body movements and hand patterns as well as techniques to let the fabric guide you during the dance. We'll explore dynamic whips and dreamy floats, weaves and infinite recursive spins, and drapes and wraps. 

Students will dance with weighted veils and flags- learning the basics of this custom veil form which is gaea's speciality!

Students should bring a silk or light fabric veil, at least 3x8 feet. Students can also bring large fabric costume pieces for improvisation in class. Gaea will have a limited amount of veils available for use, borrow, and sale. For custom orders in advance, Contact gaealady@gmail.com
