Bellydance Fusion Retreat with a blend of Yoga
from 1st – 4th of February
with Gudie Mido
This 7 days retreat takes you on a journey to explore dance in one of the most magical places to calm the mind and explore nature Volcan Laguna.
Volcan Laguna has established itself with Yoga retreats, making this scenery the perfect spot to explore dance with a touch of Yoga inspired warmups and cooldowns. This retreat is a fullout introduction into Gudie’s world of Bellydance Fusion, a dance that can be described as a „new style dance“ fusing bellydance (Tribal Fusion) movements and urban dance techniques (do check out the VIDEOs).
Gudie Mido will take you on a journey on exploring different types of body isolations by using Bellydance- and Popping inspired technique. Surrounding by Volcan Laguna’s nature and water we will dive into (body-) waving technique as well as Liquid Style used in Tribal Fusion Bellydance and inspired by urban dance styles.
In the morning we will adjust the body into new movements integrate isolation and waving techniques in our body by using flowing transitions of movement patterns to explore isolation and waving possibilities in different body parts. This will be garmented by yoga inspired warmup and cooldown.
The afternoon we will try to deepen the previously learned movements by combining and practice them in little combos. To frame the work we will be working on a choreography. There will be a nature dance video shoot of the choreography in the last days of he retreat for those who want to present and preserve what they have absorbed in this journey of movement.
This adventure is for beginners, intermediate dancers and open to all genders.

Especially bellydance technique in Tribal Fusion tremendously helped her to get cured and live her passion. Since teenage days she is interested in urban and Hip Hop dancestyles. Her urge for movement finally let her discover (Tribal-) Fusion Bellydance and lately she has been training popping style that she is more and more integrating into her dance.
