Seize your sword! Learn an original sword choreography by Marta which was requested by WAMED Festival in Perth 2018. The focus of the choreography is on the transient flow of tribal sword stylisation and tight isolations of ancient dance paired with modern music. We will cover the importance of postural alignment, handling, your personal sword persona and building a close relationship with your blade.
"Marta - your performance was breath taking. Thank you for sharing your art with us, and teaching your spectacular choreo. Xx"

From Marta to you -
"Sword dancing for me is so powerful. When I handle the sword it becomes a part of me and my soul, it's my weapon of choice. Almost like a connection the the past is formed. I take a lot of my inspiration from mid and north African dance and throughout the Middle East. I have a strong belief that sword dancing should be kept as a testament to the original use for the sword and holding the sword in the highest light no matter what style it's danced with. It is a weapon after all, and when I see dancers treating the sword with the respect of a weapon it makes me so proud! 🗡"
