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!

 

=============================================

 

What you can expect in this Intro to Belly Dance session:

 

-In each class a warm up with gentle movements and light stretches, fundamental belly dance technique

breakdowns, drills, and combinations of movements to music from and inspired by the Middle East.

Hip scarves will be available to borrow during class time.

 

-Towards the end of our session, learn some fun eye-catching veil moves!

A veil is a large rectangular or semi-circular colorful fabric, often silk, that a dancer uses to make

the dance even more visual and dynamic!

Not necessary to purchase a veil or hipscarf, may be borrowed from me during class time. If you

would like to buy a veil or hip scarf, please inquire & I can give you store options 😉

What to wear to class: Comfortable stretchy clothing, like yoga pants and a sports bra. Showing the belly is not required. We like to dance with bare feet, however dance shoes/socks are up to you.
