This 90 minute class is perfect whether you are new to bellydance or even if you have NEVER taken a dance class!
Welcome to the most beautiful dance in the world!
You have taken the first step and we will take care of you for the rest.
Whether you are new to bellydance or a returning for a second go around (we actually suggest doing this class 3 or 4 times) this class will speak to that dance spirit inside of you. You know, the one who likes the sparkles and the hip bumps.
Here is what you learn:
- dance posture, alignment and isolation of the body's core muscle groups.
- basic footwork, hip isolations, undulations and shimmies.
- combinations of movements
- a short choreography to assist you in putting it all together.
We are climbing outside the normal veil dance this session. One of the happiest sounding types of music heard in bellydance is in the Saidi rhythm. The dances that go with this type of music are cheeky, playful, and can be seen at parties all over Egypt. We will be dancing with canes in the Assaya style of dance, and probably grinning like silly fools the whole time. This type of dance is way more fun than you could ever imagine. It is among the faster bellydance styles, and that means sassy footwork will play a significant role in the session.
We dance barefoot and you will just need comfortable yoga style clothes to move in - a coin hipscarf is recommended and available at the studio. This session we are dancing with veils which are available to purchase in our store if needed. A water bottle is great to bring too as you will sweat!
Student recital info: We celebrate the end of each 10 week session with a fun dance recital! There will be a choreography taught in this class and the opportunity to perform in our amazing end of term show! If you choose to participate, you will need a performer ticket as well as a costume to wear for the performance. Many costuming options will be made available. If you choose not to perform then we hope you come and watch and cheer on your classmates!
