Lose yourself in the captivating music and movement of Middle Eastern dance in this empowering and energizing workshop. From sharp & percussive to soft & fluid, you will learn some of the basic movements that make up the foundation of this dance form.
Geared toward brand new students and those with some experience, this class will include a comprehensive breakdown of technique, traveling steps and turns, drills, and combinations. By the end of the workshop, you will be dancing a full choreography to a classic Egyptian song.
Belly Dance is studied and performed by women of all backgrounds and ages. Not only is it a beautiful art form and means of self-expression, it also increases flexibility, tones your abs and helps you to achieve grace, poise, balance and coordination.
What to wear/bring:
Wear comfortable clothing – whatever you would wear to workout (Yoga or dance pants, tanks or t-shirts). It is recommended that you wear dance shoes (ballet slippers or jazz shoes) if you have them but you are more than welcome to dance barefoot. Hip scarves will be available to borrow or purchase for $20.
