With a strong penchant for dance, I started my training with Chinese folk dance and conditioned my body with basic classical Chinese Dance since my early childhood. However, since I enrolled with Beijing Normal University, I have not only learned Chinese dance, but also basic ballet, contemporary dance training and choreography. Having previously graduated from the University of Edinburgh with an MSc in Dance Science and Education, and from Beijing Normal University with a double degree (BA in Dance and BA in Chinese Language and Literature), I have actively engaged in learning Scottish dancing and have conducted research on engagement in Scottish ceilidh and country dance in Edinburgh, Scotland and in Lyon, France.

 


 

Colombia ‘bailes cantaos ‘
I am anthropologist and dancer from Colombia. Researching and dancing are my tools to interact with the world and the people around, because both are always teaching me how to embody the rhythm of other´s life. In this opportunity I want to share some bailes cantaos that literally means sung dances, a term related to many Afro-Colombian dances. Some of the forms we will learn are Cumbia, Bullerengue, and Porro.

Hediyeh Azma, an Iranian National Dancer. I have 22 years of experience in this field as dancer and 13 years working experience as dance instructor and choreographer; and I have gained prizes for my fusion dance choreographies. Studying master of Dance in Szeged, I could hold a workshop in Budapest to introduce this art-form in Hungary.
Iranian National Dance is a fusion of traditional Iranian dances’ characteristics with ballet attitude; the smooth traditional Iranian music accompanying the movements, gives a spiritual atmosphere to this dance form.
Through this workshop participants will get to know some Iranian Dance movements, so that they could perform a short-choreographed piece at the end of the class.

Zulu Dance type Shiyameni style is found different cities in South African Zulu male hostels. It is mostly practiced by Zulu men and women.

I am twenty-five years old Lindani Phumlomo from the beautiful unpredictable dusty street of KwaMashu township the Durban City surrounding in KwaZulu Natal South Africa. I consider myself self-driven and vigorous yet calm. I was born in KwaMashu Polyclinic. It was 1992 June 18th when I came to this earth. I grew up with cousins at my granny’s house from the age of three years. Most of them were very old, five to fifteen years older. My assumedly rebellious cousin Celiwe Phumlomo sowed the first seed of my love for dance. She was known to the life of partying and she constantly imparted her local dance skills and new dance trends to me and my other cousins whenever she had the chance. I gravitated towards dancing since from then my love for dance was planted and gradually grew with age. However, the love for popular trendy dances fell and I developed as a Zulu traditional dancer. I went on to study for the Bachelor program in the University of KwaZulu Natal. I went on to look for opportunities to help me develop ways to study my cultural dances and understand them better in terms of writing. My aim after Choreomundus is to apply techniques and methods I learned during my coursework and fieldwork in Norway Trondheim NTNU Musicology department. I aim to be an expert Zulu Dance researcher and a dance historian of the Zulus.
