Adriana VonRunic can tailor workshops for all ages – from unborn (pregnancy), babies 0-18 mos., toddlers 2-4 years, school children, special needs, teenagers, parenting and school teachers. For the children, special needs and infants, it is to begin a journey with music through senses and storytelling – for adults and teenagers also, but she then also includes the element of learning to create the element of creativity through music into your daily lives or instruction.

Adriana is a successful Concert Flautist who travels the world performing, teaching and also developing the Pentatonic and ‘Music Therapy’ series for all ages, most recently completing successful longer-term ventures in China and Australia. Adriana also has a module created from her teachings at the Crossfields Institute in the UK, an approved module that provides certs of attendance and also specializes in Parenting Training through music. Her baby workshops are not just about making a few interesting noises on a xylophone or a triangle and a bit of fun, beneath the surface is research about Neuro-Brain Science from the University of California about how in-utero and newborn babies react to music and instrumental sound but in a very relaxed, gentle and open-minded environment for mothers, fathers and their infants. She uses specialized instruments called ‘Choroi’ – baby instruments based on research in music therapy worldwide.

For schoolchildren and teenagers, her methods of teaching closely resemble that of how to do a cooking formula – it’s all hands on, any musical stories made are improvised together with a dramatic and creative approach. Teenagers are allowed to actually also create their own instruments from ‘trash’ or materials that one would otherwise discard or throw away.

AEPRIL’S TWO DAY WORKSHOP FOR € 35

 

PRE-REGISTER HERE

 

Aepril Schaile is a Belly Dancer, Performance Artist, and Poet. It has been said that her performances project a “world” in which the audience lives with her for a moment in time; her work humanistically invokes aspects of the dark feminine. She is the owner of Aepril’s Astrology (soon to be Aepril’s Arcana) and publishes The Nuit Report, a weekly astrology video oracle and esoteric teaching. She has been a featured Bellydance Artist/Teacher in Paris, London, Rome, New York, L.A., and throughout Europe and the US. She has recently moved to Ireland from the United States. Aepril holds an MFA in Interdisciplinary Art.

Eerie Glamour and Ethereal Grace: The Art of Shapeshifting

In this workshop, you will learn the magic of shapeshifting via Bellydance-based movement. You’ll learn floating traveling steps and combinations to create an eerie and spectral stylization. You will learn to combine stillness with precise isolations, seemingly slowing and speeding up time to appear beautiful, strange, and powerful all at once! This workshop begins with a meditative warm-up and ends with a short cool down.

Lilith: The Bad Girl of Astrology

In this workshop, you will learn about the dark feminine archetype of Lilith through the zodiac. Lilith is a complex, diverse, shapeshifting figure with roots in ancient Goddess times; she later become a demoness, and then a Femme Fatale, and more recently a figure of female empowerment. In our personal chart, Black Moon Lilith shows us where our most compelling and magnetic attributes lie, but also where we may experience exile, rejection, or alienation. Like the complex nature of the divine feminine, she defies definition, yet to know her is to know our own true, essential power. This workshop will include a short meditation.
