Fusion belly dance combines classic belly dance technique with other dance forms such as jazz, flamenco, hip hop and Indian dance to create a unique and beautiful aesthetic. In this class, you will learn the art of fluid arm movement and how to express yourself through hand gestures. Your instructor, Dahlia, who is known for her interesting arm and hand embellishments, is ready to share her secrets with you!
In this workshop, we will drill a variety of arm and hand exercises and combinations that will help you create fluid and complete patterns. We will also explore sharp accents to punctuate and add variety to your dance, as well as find ways to incorporate your arm and hand movements with your body movements.
Be ready to break out of your comfort zone and have fun!
