MORGANA

 

Morgana is an internationally-recognized Tribal Fusion and Dark Fusion dancer, choreographer, and instructor.

Her work is very prolific and varied. It is highlighted by her choreographic compositions inspired by stories and characters from films and videogames, her collection of animal-inspired steps, which have resulted from her research on animal mimicry, and especially, her fusion of tribal dance with weapons and martial arts, in which Morgana is a worldwide pioneer. A dark aesthetic predominates in her work, addressed from multiple angles: from Chinese and Japanese culture to Science Fiction and the Victorian Era.

At the educational level, she has developed the MEW (Morgan East & West) format, a five-level dance program that combines the general basics of oriental dance, Tribal ATS and Tribal Fusion with her own repertoire of steps, and is complemented by professional specialization courses. This format is taught through regular classes in Madrid at Morgan East & West Dance and Performing Arts Center and in various European locations such Italy and the United Kingdom, as well as through thematic workshops around the world.

Morgana is also the founder of Excalibur Dance Company, a dance and stage-fighting company with almost 25 years of experience in Europe, and the organizer of the Spanish edition of the international alternative dance festival Gothla Spain.

Silvia Salamanca is an internationally acclaimed performer and instructor from Mallorca, Spain.

A life-long dancer, she graduated at the age of nineteen as a major in ballet and performed professionally as a modern dancer in major Europe festivals with the contemporary dance company of the University of Barcelona.

She started her career as a belly dancer in 2001, when realising the enormous benefits that this art-form brings to women in both body and soul. In her own studio, she keeps observing how women can get closer to their self identity and discover oneself in a new level, increasing self-esteem, and getting deeply in touch with the feminine essence in their soul through bellydance.

As a natural evolution in her journey, Silvia discovered tribal fusion in the USA and combined it with a deep research into her own cultural roots: Spanish gypsy and Arabic. Hence with her work in the field of Zambra Mora (spanish gypsy-oriental dance fusion) Silvia gained international recognition and is currently invited to teach workshops and perform as a headliner in major festivals world-wide. Silvia is also known for her work dancing with swords, which she feels depicts the strength of women.

Silvia is also the director of Shunyata Belly Dance, a nationally awarded tribal fusion company and a proud member of Urban Gypsy, Houston’s premiere ITS troupe. www.silviasalamanca.com
