INTENSIVE TRAINING

á la CATT February 2 -4, 2024

Times change and many dancers find it difficult to commit to 2 years of CATT. Since there is still a great thirst for thorough knowledge we have changed the CATT format. From 10 days per semester we now offer 3 days of intensive training with the topics and guest teachers of each semester – for only ONE MORE TIME.

Easter 2023 our guests for the topics of the second semester were Yasmina of Cairo, Laura Huovinen and Laure Anne Poutot. In September 2023 Maizena and Olena – CATT Company Members and esteemed Graduates of CATT – as well as SBK Bollywood dancer taught the topics of the 3rd semester. Beata & Horacio were accompanied for the rhythm classes by Master Percussionist Khader Ahmad!

Please note: CATT 4th Semester topics will be offered FOR THE VERY LAST TIME.

This page and the page about the show and the performers will be updated accordingly, so check again or sign up for the newsletter!

Instructors

Beata & Horacio Cifuentes

both teach at their own Dance Academy and have been traveling all continents to teach and perform.They were among the first to tour with a full evening programm, shlepping about with 10 suitcases containing up to 28 costumes, backdrops and props accompanied by light designer Katri Kuusimäki and a wardrobe lady.

Since 2008 they taught the teacher / dancer program CATT (Certified Academic Teacher Training) which is now available to everybody in a slimmed down version. The program contains a lot of background knowledge, created lots of revelations through personal coaching and explicit technique explanations. We want you to understand each movement exactly and not only learn one choreography after the other and often times not really knowing what you are dancing or being unable to remember steps well. Beata & Horacio teach so that you can create your own dances, express your individuality and finally get rid of old dance technique problems. Understanding structure means easier memory and in general a lot of light shed on things! Ask any CATT graduate, much more than you think is possible!

The topics of the 4th semester will be taught for the last time February 2 -4, 2024.

Workshops with Beata

Friday February 2  14.30 – 15.45 pm:  Creating a Choreography Part 1

Saturday February 3 1.45 – 2.45 pm:  Advanced Technique

Sunday February 4  11 – 12 noon:   Floor Barre + Stretching

Sunday February 4  12.15 – 1.45 pm:   Rhythm Samaii + matching movements

Sunday February 4 5.15 – 6.30 pm:   Creating a Choreography Part 2

Floor Barre + Stretching

is a wonderful way to start the (dance) day. The floor exercises not only provide strength and get rid of back pains, they also give you a sense of correct posture. Throw in long lean muscles and deep relaxation and enjoy a MUST DO class for dancers.

Please bring your own mat or towel.

Advanced Technique

The 4th semester is all about refining your own technique. All over the world the same movements cause problems.  We will address these moves and clear them up for good. Up until January 15 you can hand in requests for your personal piéce de resistance, Technik á la carte!

 Samaii

is an important rhythm especially used in Grand Soli.  Learn to recognise rhythms and know their typical movements. Knowledge about rhythms and style will be very helpful to create and remember combinations and choreographies.

Choreography “made easy”, Part 1 and 2

By understanding the language of each single instrument and their use in a music piece you receive a manual to create your own dances. They will “tell” you how to use the space onstage, which movements of your repertoire fit in, determine energy level, focus, expression in Classical Raks Sharqi, Folklore, Songs or Um Kalthoum. By learning about music analysis you you will clearly see the geometrical patterns and system of the music. This makes it easy to remember and create anew.

Workshops with Horacio

Friday  February 2 11 – 12.15 pm:   Ballet

Friday February 2 12.30 – 2 pm:   Hip Technique and Drum Solo

Saturday February 3  11 – 12.15 pm:   Ballet

Sunday February 4  2.15 – 3.15 pm  Andalusian, Muwashahat

Sunday February 4  3.30 – 5 pm  Spanish Arabic

Ballet

Many Oriental Dancers are a bit scared of ballet, thinking of acrobatic leg lifts etc. This ballet class is made for Oriental Dancers to enhance their understanding of structure, beautiful lines and are generally helpful for dance technique of any style. So use the opportunity to progress and have fun!

Shimmie Variations with and without Cymbals

Every dancer should be part musician, knowing the rhythms and playing cymbals!  Any prop will make the audience more attentive and add to your performance. Playing finger cymbals cannot be learned in one class, like playing any instrument it takes time. But there are ways to learn and develop from cymbal frustration to cymbal heaven! Combined with Shimmie-Variations.

Andalusian, Muwashahat

is an Arabic Dance Style from the 10. century when Spain was occupied by the Maures. Mahmoud Reda rediscovered this dance for the stage when he founded the Reda Troupe in Cairo in 1959. Today his style is regarded as THE Andalusian Muwashahat, a dance full of romance and elegance.

Spanish Arabic

Oriental Dance with elements of Flamenco, music and dance fusion both styles into a sensual mix of fire, pride, strength and  temperament. Discover your wild side!

Patricia Zarnovican

is one of the pioneers of Fusion Bellydance in Germany. Since she founded her ensemble perlatentia in 2004 she has devoted herself to this special dance form. She was one of the first to do so in Germany.

In 2011  she successfully graduated from Beata und Horacio Cifuentes’ CATT – Training.

Patricia is also certified FCBD®Style (FatChanceBellyDance® Style) Teacher since 2016 (re-certified 2018) and official FCBD®Certified Studio Hannover.

2019-2022 she did Rachel Brice’ 8 Elements dancer / teacher training Phases I-IV in Studio Datura in Portland/Oregon and is now certified Datura™Style Teacher.

Katri Kuusimaki from Finland lives and works in Berlin since many years. As a studied Light Designer she worked in various theater productions. Beata & Horacio have been touring the world with her since the year 2000 and can testify first hand to her amazing expertise. Due to our many travels together Katri is very familiar with Oriental Dance and will show you how to look your absolute best onstage. Throughout the CATT years the dancers were always amazed at how much  good lighting can enhance a performance. Dont miss this priceless infomation!!
