Tuesdays

Bellydance 1
(All Levels)
6:15-7:15pm

Each class includes a detailed break-down of bellydance fundamentals. Week 1: posture & isolation, Week 2: circles, Week 3: various shimmies, Week 4: undulations, Week 5: figure eights, Week 6: various turns…continue until Week 8!  Practice traveling in space with all these basics and take home a simple drill combo each week for your individual practice. Technique is relevant to all styles of bellydance. If you are a beginner THIS is your entry point into bellydance.  If you have been bellydancing many years but with no formal training THIS is your class.

Bellydance 2
(Intermediate)
7:25-8:25pm

Students learn a slow ooey-gooey Tribal Fusion dance to a bass-heavy song off ElitrickKids’ new album! Students will have the option to perform this choreography at Rose Movement’s Spring Show / ElitrickKids’ CD Release Party May 3rd. Preferably students have at least one year of dedicated practice prior to joining this class and have also completed April’s Bellydance Level 1 class.

Improvisational Tribal Style 1
8:35 – 9:35pm
This class is Improvisational Tribal Style (ITS): a way to dance improvisationally with your friends, off the cuff, and in total synchronicity! A contemporary style of belly dance, ITS is a structured, improvisational dance form performed in a group. We learn short choreographies and “cues” for these movement sequences so that we can arrange them spontaneously, anywhere, to any music!
Don’t know what Improv Tribal Style is?
Watch April’s Improv Tribal Level 3 students performing at Emo’s with Beats Antique  and with UNMATA and Zoe Jakes at 3rd Coast Tribal Fest!
