Shimmy Shake Festival: workshop ATS - Hilde Cannoodt (UK)
Hilde has trained extensively in ATS since 2005 and her style of fusion is strongly inspired by the ATS aesthetic. This is one of Hilde's original Tribal Fusion choreographies. In this workshop she will also explain how ATS can be used as a point of departure for making Tribal Fusion choreographies, using its movements to embody the music. This class is for intermediate dancers only, but previous knowledge in ATS is not a must.
Hilde is a choreographer, choreologist, instructor and performer specialising in fusion dances. She trained extensively in numerous dance styles such as tribal fusion, contemporary dance, hip hop, house, locking, flamenco, ATS, classical Indian dance, jazz, ballet and Oriental dance. She has also extensively trained in Silvestre Technique, a contemporary dance technique from Salvador, Brazil.
She has performed and collaborated with some incredible artists, such as Natacha Atlas, Merlin Shepherd, Phil Thornton, Sabio Janiak, Violet Scrap, Donna Mejia, Wendy Buonaventura, Tjarda Van Straten and many more.
