Bagoas is an award winning fusion dancer known for his musicality, lyricism, technical power, precision, and down to earth interaction with his audience. In 2010 he won the title of the Yellow Rose of Texas at Ya Halla Y’all in the Professional Tribal Alternative Men’s category. Since then he has taught and performed at festivals and venues across North America, where he has been lovingly described as an Atari joystick, one liquid muscle, the Energizer Bunny of belly dance, a blur of belly jiggles and most recently, a Red Hot Chili Pepper with Michael Jackson in his belly.
Winner of the Men’s Tribal/Alternative Solo Star competition at Ya Halla Y’all 2010, Grapevine, TX.
“Bagoas is man and boy, masculine and feminine. He will not be bound by the dictates of tradition or convention, and we cannot help but love him for it.” ~Zaghareet Magazine
2017 Cues and Tattoos Workshop
Breath and Shadow – Saturday April 1 – 3:00pm – 5:00 pm
This workshop will break down the mechanics of the breath within the context of common belly dance isolation’s. Students will be coached through breathing exercises and techniques that can be used to develop phrasing, endurance and focus, as well as polish upper body isolation’s. These exercises will then be applied to short combos to help tie breath into movement. Bringing awareness to the breath allows dancers to discover their potential slinkiness and add that luscious, molasses-like aesthetic to choreographies and combos.
