Red Mars Dance Project

Cydonia & Red Mars Dance Project . . . . .


Level 3 Certified Ascend Tribal Dance Format. 

Cydonia is an experienced public performer in ITS, tribal & dark fusion belly dance. Noted for her ability to express the emotion of the dance and for her skill with the sword, she has appeared at events around New Zealand both teaching and performing.

 Having studied various dance forms Cydonia came to belly dance in 2007. She feels fortunate to have been taught by inspirational dancers from around New Zealand and overseas, and is protègè to Sashi of Ascend Tribal Dance. Her experience also stems from an extensive background in theatre, rhythmic gymnastics and dance studies at University.

Red Mars Dance Project embraces a cybernetic  collaboration of tribal belly dance and Western dance styles to explore the darker realms of fusion. It infuses a science fiction flavour and elements of theatrical performance to create a dance form for an imagined future. We offer:

  • Solo performances by Cydonia.
  • Industrial and dark fusion performance troupe.
  • Tuition in Improvisational Tribal Style (Dunedin Format) from beginners to advanced levels.
  • Student ITS performance troupe, Hinemaia, available for community events.
  • Collaboration with artists and photographers on performance art and photography/videography projects.
