Spear & Sword Belly Dance Workshops with Janeal Ironside

January 5 & 6, 2019

Find your inner warrior in this one of a kind workshop series that integrates a mixture of belly dance and martial arts with different weapon styles. With a focus on the dances of ancient cultures and influenced by tribal rhythms and beats this series will take your dance style to the next level and add a dimension not seen before.

At an early age Janeal was fascinated with dance.  Starting off in Ballet and Gymnastics nothing seemed to fit quite what she was looking for.  Until 14 years ago when Janeal discovered the liberating free style movements of tribal belly dancing.  The deep earthly beats connected with Janeal on a very personal level.  The weapons work blended beautifully with Janeal’s other passion of martial arts.  The more Janeal studied and trained the deeper this connection became.  10 years ago Janeal started sharing her passion with others teaching classes to whomever wanted to learn.  It is her desire to share this rich style of dance, steeped in history, with women everywhere.  Through building a community of women connected to build their inner power and beauty and release their inner warrior to the beats and movements of the earth.

Sword Dancing

Dancing with a sword is about balance and control. It is a display of deadly grace and beauty. In this workshop the sword becomes extension of your arm and you’ll learn a variety of ways to wield the dance sword including spins and mock fighting.

Dancers must bring their own dancing sword. There will be a few swords available for purchase. Prior dancing knowledge is not necessary. Loose clothing may interfere with movement. A tight-fitting top and comfy but fitting pants are recommended.

10 am – 1 pm
$40

Lunch Break 1 pm to 2 pm – You’re welcome to bring a lunch for the break.

Spear Dancing

Spear work requires confidence, strength, concentration, and grace. In this workshop you’ll learn different fighting styles with tribal and Eastern influences. Basic spins plus tips and tricks will be covered. This style can easily prepare dancers for fire dancing and poi.

Broom sticks make excellent practice dancing spears and can be purchased cheaply at any hardware store. Dancers must bring their own practice spear. No prior knowledge is required for this class. Loose clothing may interfere with movement. A tight-fitting top and comfy but fitting pants are recommended.

Women’s Self Defense Class Day 1

We got a lot of great work in with today’s women’s self defense class. I got to watch a woman easily half the size of Nicholas Ironside throw him around. The tactics we were teaching really work. They are designed to work with a woman’s natural instincts and can be immediately implemented. Practice can greatly improve the execution of the technique, however students can walk away with practical skills right away. I’m really looking forward to day 2 of this class!

We covered two different scenarios in class today.  The first scenario was set for a crowed area such as a night club.  The second scenario was set for a dark parking lot.  Each scenario had it’s own unique set of skills being taught.  These skills are easy to learn and can be implemented right away.  Each technique lays a foundation stone for more learning.  It is the hope that these classes could save lives.  It all has to do with a person’s willingness to take their future and safety into their own hands.

Quill – Self Defense Tool

One of the topics covered in the Women’s Self Defense class is hidden weapons women can have with them. Let me introduce you to the “Quill.” The Quill is a long metal Spike that can be worn in a woman’s hair. It works for just about any occasion from formal dresses to working out in the gym. It is also a 4” long dagger that can be instantly accessed if attacked. The Quill was custom designed by instructor Nathan TwoEagles-Downing and tested by instructor Janeal Ironside. Come join us on Dec. 1 or 2 from noon-4pm to learn about the defensive advantages this unique piece of jewelry can offer.

With the registration and prepay of the women’s self defense class, names will be entered into a free giveaway for a Quill complete with butterfly barrette. We will also have more available for purchase during the class.

But wait there is more!  The first ten registered and prepay participants will also be given 1 month free membership to Ironside Medieval Combat.
