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.
Each class features physical conditioning exercises and technique break-downs. This session, students learn combinations featuring Rose Movement level 2 vocabulary and *finger cymbals*. Preferably students have at least one year of dedicated bellydance 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!
*Preferably students have at least one year of dedicated bellydance practice prior to joining this class and have also completed April’s Bellydance Level 1 class.
