Luciterra Fusion Dance School

____________

Welcome to the Luciterra School Of Dance. Our school is aimed at providing innovative, accessible, and conscientious dance instruction for every dancer. Our classes are a reflection of our fusion style of dance incorporating elements of Bellydance*, Popping, Contemporary, Jazz, and Wh/aacking. Classes focus on strong technique and dynamic choreography while exploring histories and socio-cultural implications of the dance forms that have contributed to our practice. Discussion and thoughtful consideration of the topics of conscientious cultural fusion and socially-engaged dance performances is strongly encouraged in every level of our school. We recognize that fusion dance is not a singular style in itself and encourage our students to explore what makes their fusion unique. Our offerings and instructors will change each season with both in person and online options. For access to on demand fusion dance classes anytime with Luciterra instructor Nikki Mae, check out her online studio on Patreon. Her online studio has classes for every level of dancer with a range of price's to suit your budget and new videos coming out every month! Visit patreon.com/nikkimae for more info.

 

Luciterra classes are held on the unceded and occupied territories of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations. We are honored and grateful to be able to live and create on these beautiful lands which inspire us every day. We will be donating 10% of the profits from our classes to different local Indigenous led organizations each session. This session's proceeds will be donated to the Indian Residential School Survivors Society. More information can be found at www.irsss.ca

 

*Luciterra acknowledges that the term bellydance is problematic as it is a colonial term that is used as a catch-all phrase to describe the rich and varied dances of South West Asian, North African, Middle Eastern, Turkish, Helenic regions. We understand that it is also the term most widely understood in the English language and therefor may use it for clarity from time to time. As a hybrid dance Company we use different terms to describe our style including Fusion Dance, Transcultural/Transnational Fusion, and Neo Bellydance. As we grow, learn, and evolve these labels will continue to evolve with us.
