Online Etiquette & Safety
Thank you for signing the waiver . I’ll send an email to you a couple days before class begins, with the link and password to our zoom classroom.
*Please know that it’s unlikely but possible for Zoom to be compromised/hacked. If this ever happens, I will log us off immediately & we’ll go from there! 👍 I have no control over hackers unfortunately. By attending my zoom classes, you accept this possibility and assume the risk, and will not blame Casandra Corette Belly Dance.
Please dance in a room with a little space around you, if possible. Be aware of any objects that could fall, that you could bump into etc. Make sure you have good grip on the floor (barefoot is best when possible, slippery socks/rug not good). Pay special attention to your dance form/posture during class and practicing.
For online technique class, everyone please arrive a few minutes early and chat while I prepare audio settings. Once class begins I may mute everyone and ask you to use “speaker view” or pin my video feed. I’ll use “gallery view” so that I can see you all. There will be time in between drills for questions and feedback.
This class is online so there may be tech adjustments for us all; please bare with me as I figure out how to give you the best class experience in my capability. 💗 We had a free run-through in June and from feedback I upgraded my visual and audio equipment. For your end of the tech equation, quality can depend on your own equipment and internet connection, but I will try my best to make sure you’re getting a good class. You can always message/text or email me as well. email@example.com

Interested in learning Belly Dance?
Belly Dance, also known as Raqs Sharqi (Dance of the Orient in Arabic) or Oriental Dance, is of Middle Eastern and North African origin. It is still evolving in it’s homelands. There are many styles and fusions of belly dance all over the world. Many belly dancers study folkloric dances that also originated in the same areas. What I often perform and teach is known as modern American Cabaret belly dance and is what you may have seen in restaurants in the US.
Learning this dance can be exhilarating! It’s a wonderful way to better appreciate your body (and all it can do!) while having fun and exploring a cultural art. Being low-impact, it is gentle on the body as well.
Some benefits of learning belly dance are: improved core strength, more muscle control, better balance, increased knowledge, and joyful feelings of expression!
Private Lessons are available as well

Live class – $60/hr + studio fee if necessary (will book an available studio nearby)
