【NADIA ONLINE】★ Workshops, Events, lots of happening in December!


Hello! ★ This is Nadia. 

What a crazy and very different year 2020 has been for all of us. We've all been challenged, changed, and pushed out of our comfort zones. What's been the biggest challenge and change for you? 

I have only one word in my mind, I do not wish to end up the year of 2020 mentioning that "I did not do anything this year" due to COVID... I think all of us feel the same way too. 

I've been thinking day and night about what is the NEW NORMAL way to produce our dance style in an artistic way, and keep improving each other even in this tough situation. And, yes I still believe there are many more things that we can do by digital. Let me plan well, and produce some digital events in December, and 2021 onwards! 

"NADIA ONLINE" which started during the lockdown in April 2020, has been very well received, I am glad that many people join us every month. In December, I would like to organize some bonus events for everyone! Some special workshops, show, and digital projects will be added with no additional charges. This is a Christmas gift from Nadia to everyone with the feeling of "Thank you again this year".

The contents are as stated below. 

Dec 1-24: Monthly Online Lesson (Basic / choreography / yoga) 42 slots per month 
Dec 5th (Sat): Flea market "Blossoms*Closet" (Instagram account also opened) 
Dec 16th (Wed) & 17th (Thu): "Arab Music Rhythm workshop" special lecturer by Teacher Takseema

NADIA ONLINE students in December can participate in the above workshops and events at no additional charge. 

* We do not recruit participants for the workshop only. 


- NEW LESSON in December! -

I would like to do something special in December, so I made the contents of our online lesson special! A special workshop will be held in mid-December with the popular darbuka player Takseema (from Tokyo) as a guest lecturer. (December 16th and 17th) Since this is a great opportunity, Nadia will choreograph and teach you by selecting "MUKHTAR" from Takseema's songs. There is also weekly choreography video distribution! What I want to emphasize in the lesson is the basics! We will do a lot of various techniques for dancing drum solos from the basic class. Building the foundation will lead you to a "dancer body" that will be useful when you dance any other songs.

In mid-December, at the time of the "Arab Music Rhythm workshop" taught by Teacher Takseema, you will have a little time after the course and have the opportunity to "co-star" with your own live performance with his live drumming. I will set it up. Live performance through ZOOM and "co-starring". This is unique only happening when it is during lockdown. Of course, it's not as good as a live performance, but I think it will be a very special and wonderful time to connect from all over the world and dance live at the same time. I think this year was a year of a lot of patience, but the last lesson in December must a happy feeling, spending time dancing with you favorite musician and wonderful friends, and for yourself. I would be grateful if you could take this as a reward time for you. We look forward to your participation.

【Arab Music Rhythm Workshop】- for super beginners

It is a great honor to welcome Teacher Takseema, a popular Japanese darbuka player living in Tokyo, as the first guest lecturer of NADIA ONLINE. Maybe many of the members are already huge fans of him?

The contents that he will introduce this time are as follows.

- - - - - - - - - 
 (Content) ▶ ︎Introduction and explanation of typical Arab rhythms (2, 3, 4, 8, 10 beats) used in belly dance and Arabic music. Explanation of each instrument and song type, band organization, etc. in Arabic music, including darbuka, and rhythm composition and patterns based on actual belly dance songs (mejanse, etc.). Since it is intended for super beginners, I will explain slowly from the beginning so that you can understand it even if you do not have knowledge of Arab rhythm or music. We look forward to your participation.
- - - - - - - - - 

If you have darbuka or Jill (finger cymbals), please bring them with you. If you don't have one, let's use applause instead! At the end of the lesson, we will invite him to perform the December theme song "MUKHTAR" and make time for everyone to dance live together. This is a special workshop for NADIA ONLINE students in December. A luxurious two-day continuous workshop. He will teach you the same content on both days, so even if you can only attend one, no worries as it will be a one-day WS. If you can attend both, please go ahead to master it!

【Bellydancer's Make-up workshop】 - "How to make NADIA's make up?"

Actually, it was a project that I had received inquiries over and over again in the past, but I couldn't feel like holding it. The reason is, yes, I didn't want to be without makeup, so lol. (You understand w) Nadia push herself and finally holds it! Bellydancer make-up workshop "How to make NADIA's make-up". Let's talk about bellydancing girls' "Eyes" issue! Introducing not only how to make smoky eyes, but also "three sacred treasures" to make your eyes look perfect even with regular makeup, as well as makeup tools and cosmetic brands (drugstore cosmetics) that Nadia has been using for many years. .. I would like to tell you about Nadia's Arab-style makeup, especially eyeliner and how to draw lips. Please look forward to it and join us. This is a bonus project for NADIA ONLINE students in December!

【Bellydancer's Flea Market】"Blossoms*Closet" Open!

Finally, the flea market 「Blossoms*Closet」 produced by Nadia will open! Until now, the flea market was held in Singapore only once a year, but from now on, you can enjoy it online at any time. The Instagram account 「Blossoms*Closet」 is a special boutique that only NADIA ONLINE members can enter♪ We will send an invitation to all members on 5 Dec (sat). Please wait for a while until then.

Do you ladies have one too? Costumes and lessons wear sleeping in the back of the closet.? Even if you don't wear it anymore, if you give it to a junior belly dancer who has just started belly dancing at a low price, you will be very pleased. Rather than throwing it away, you can reduce costs by selling it to someone who is willing to use it, clear your closet comfortably, and procuring what you want next in a closet that you can afford. We will make that exchange easy within NADIA ONLINE members. 

From the Nadia closet, you can see the luxury brand costumes that Nadia wore in past shows (Bella, Anastasia, Pauline, etc.), the fashionable lesson wear that she is currently wearing in her lessons, props such as veils, accessories, etc. I would like to hand over dance-related items with a second hand at a price of less than half the purchase price. Looking forward to it!

First of all, as a launch event of  Blossoms*Closet, we will hold an online / offline / hybrid flea market at Raffles Town Club from 13:00 to 15:00 on 12/5 (sat). The number of visitors is limited to 8 people, by reservation only.

This event is limited to NADIA ONLINE members in December. If you would like to participate, please send a message individually. If there are many people, we will create a time schedule. 

All NADIA ONLINE members will be notified by email in December regarding how to exhibit and purchase Blossoms*Closet .

【Online hafla】"Christmas Performance" 
@Goodman Arts Black Box Theatre

Since the lockdown in April this year, all Singapore events have been cancelled! So sad ... 

But I'll do it! 

A lot of beloved students dance the NADIA Choreography that were born in 2020. A fairly luxurious lineup. We will have a wonderful theater, and will be directed by Nadia, and David Goh's camera work, with no audience. There is something you can do because it is a video! So, I am particular about directing 😎👍 The performers are NADIA ONLINE students living in Singapore. Nadia also dances, but the main characters of this event are the students who are seriously learning NADIA works. So, Nadia basically does her best behind the scenes. The video of the live performance without spectators on the day will be delivered live from the NADIA ONLINE official Instagram account 「VELVET ROOM」Please look forward to it!

【Little Christmas Party】"#Zoom Party♪" 
After the online Hafla on December 25th, we will plan a simple drink at ZOOM. Even if you can't go to the online Hafla, I hope you can have a drink with one hand for a while. The dress code is RED! And, eyelash! Lol 

Toast with a frothy drink (sprites allowed) and a clear glass.

【IGTV PROJECT】"Digital Recital" on Instagram.
From December 31st, the digital project "IGTV PROJECT" produced by Nadia will be released and activities will start. "A new form of presentation" at Post Corona! We have a platform where you can participate as a "performer" anywhere in the world. Support your friends, be inspired by the dance of your seniors, exchange comments, and have more realistic exchanges than a real presentation! Because of this era, Nadia decided to produce it, hoping to create a space where members can have a warm and wonderful "connection" with each other. From the NADIA ONLINE official account (private account by invitation only)「VELVET ROOM」, we will deliver dance videos on IGTV.

VELVET ROOM」is a secret room for members only. Of course, since it is limited to women, we will create a space like Harem Palace, which is wrapped in a veil and seems to have a nice scent. We will collect the works that you have carefully danced in this space as if we were collecting jewels. Nadia will take care of all of the video editing, thumbnail design, and digital production, and we will help you to make the danced work even more brilliant. Why don't you join us in warming up this project starting December 31, 2020?
