Glam it up this weekend

Take a road trip to Columbus on Saturday, March 15 for a very special workshop on makeup for dancers with Leyla Soleil. In addition to being a fabulous professional belly dancer, Leyla has worked as a cosmetics consultant. She has combined her expertise in both arts in this 1 ½ hour workshop (11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.)

Makeup for the stage is different than for “real” life. Each venue presents its own issues and the physicality of dance affects the face as well. A dancer, after all, wants to look her glamorous best.

Students will learn how to apply a “basic ballerina face” and how to adapt it to belly dance. They will learn the difference between makeup for the large stage, restaurants, haflas and outdoors. Learn how to use new makeup trends without looking dated.

The workshop will include notes and product reviews. Each student will learn by doing, applying makeup to their own face as they watch the demonstration.

Attendees will also have the option to get a photograph taken (with their new look) in the photographic studio. Bring a flash drive or provide your e-mail to receive the photo file.

This is a great opportunity to visit with and reconnect with Leyla, who resided in the Akron area for a number of years and was active in Northeast Ohio’s belly dance community.

Pre-registration is required. Once fully registered, students will receive a list of products to bring (budget options are listed for all products). The cost is only $25 per student.

To register e-mail dancedusoleil@gmail.com and put “Makeup Workshop” on the subject line.
