The Aepril Schaile Mysterie School of Dance
Bellydance + Ritual-Theatre + Performance Art
Aepril Schaile has taught hundreds of students all over the world, from New York to London to Paris to Salem, MA! The Aepril Schaile Mysterie School of Dance overcomes the millennia old split between dance, theatre, and spiritual ritual, reintegrating these traditionally separate elements into the holistic, empowering, original form of bellydance performance and instruction for which Aepril is known.
The Aepril Schaile Mysterie School Method incorporates performance art, theatre, shamanism, ritual, Gothic sensibilities and aesthetics, Archetypal psychology, meditation, and a touch of Witchcraft into Aepril’s truly original form of bellydance. The Method is based in Classical and Tribal Fusion Bellydance, with influences from ballet to break dance, from theatre to Magick, creating Aepril Schaile’s signature shamanistic, powerfully expressive, ethereal and otherworldly style of fusion dance; and a mystically themed, theatrically oriented bellydance instruction specializing in dramatic expression, spiritual and artistic authenticity, and technical precision and power.

For accelerated and/or augmented learning, Aepril offers private and semi-private lessons in Salem. Private lessons are a great way to hone your craft, and individualize your dance. Aepril can work with you on choreography, performance skills, drills, theatricality. She can help you identify your technical strengths, and skills that can be improved, working with your specific needs and goals. Your dance skill and confidence will develop far more quickly and solidly than with classes alone. Questions? Just ask! aepril at aeprilschaile. com
All classes include some basic yoga stretches and moving meditation as part of instruction. You can bring a yoga mat if you wish. Please wear comfortable clothing, and bring something to tie around your hips if you like, in order to better feel your hip movements!
