Taking Flight with Feather Fans - Dance Workshop with Maple Rose

I'm so excited to be going on tour yet again and bringing my European famous Feather fan workshop to the lovely ladies of Canberra!

Get ready to take flight with this workshop and we look at fan dancing from the perspective of two birds: Peacock and Swan.

In the peacock style of dancing, the fans are like a peacock’s tail. It’s is all about concealment, teasing, shapes and showing off. Many classic showgirls use this style, and their talent lies in the tease.

In the swan style of dancing, the fans are much more theatrical.The fans mimic the movements of wings and the performer’s talent lies in the technical movements they make.

This is a fairly advanced class where we’ll learn interesting tricks with the fans. However, it’s open to anyone willing to give it a go.

Bring along your own fans, otherwise you can loan a pair of smaller Chinese fans for the duration of the workshop
