Bellydance Beginner Tuesday Winter 2017
BELLYDANCE BEGINNER WITH DONNA TUESDAYS 6:00PM-7:30PM
Welcome to the most beautiful dance in the world!
Starts: Tuesday, January 17, 2017
Duration: 10 weeks
Recital: Sunday, April 2, 2017
This 90 minute class is perfect whether you are new to bellydance or even if you have NEVER taken a dance class!
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.
This session, the beginner class will be working with veils. One of the most recognizable props in all of bellydance, it was probably in the hands of the first bellydancer you ever saw as a child, and is also usually being expertly wielded by the mysterious and exotic bellydancers up on the silver screen. We will be using a beautiful piece of music from the golden age of the movie bellydancer, and focusing on slower tempos and fluidity of movement.
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. 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!
