Event description

Beginner Fan Dance introduces you to the elegant art of dancing with ostrich feather fans.

In this four-week course, you will learn the fundamentals of fan dance technique including holds or grips, classic poses, transition moves and grip changes, fan conceal and reveal, and fan tricks. Each week will build on the skills of the previous week including applying what we’ve learned and putting it into a fun fan dance routine.

You are welcome to bring your own fans, however ostrich feather fans and large paper peony dance fans will be available for use during the class.

  • Week 1: 6pm - 7pm Sunday, 25 June

About your instructor, Rainbow:

Rainbow is an international award-winning Newcastle-based performance artist, teacher and producer renowned for her fan dancing expertise. She can’t wait to introduce you to the joy and art of fan dancing.

What to wear: bring clothes you can move and dance in. It is suggested that you wear close fitting clothes as lose-fitting clothes get caught in the feathers and fan staves. You are also welcome to bring dancing shoes (ballet flats, chorus, salsa or ballroom shoes), but you can also dance barefoot if you prefer.

Who is the class for?

  • The course is open to all persons over the age of 18 who wish to learn how to fan dance.
  • This course is designed for fan dancing novices, but those who have some experience and would like to brush up on their skills are also invited to attend.
