Belly Dance Technique and Performance Skills with Samira

Technique and Performance Skills- This  one and a half hour class is a multi level class geared towards belly dancers with some class experience that want to brush up on and drill all the basics (and some “not so basic”). We will work on the foundations of belly dance; posture, arms and hands, steps, spins and turns, shimmies traveling and isolations. Bring your sagat or zills! We will also
further develop your dance vocabulary and technique while refining your lines, movements, transitions, musicality, expression and understanding of this beautiful art. Different parts of a dance show will be explored and props will also be covered over different sessions.  Class format will include warm-up and conditioning, arms, sagat drill, stationary drills, across the floor, improvisation follow, concepts of improvisation and choreography and cool down. We incorporate video critiques each session. Technique and Performance Skills Belly Dance is not for novice dancers.  You will be expected to practice at home and do homework. Students also do exercises to learn to access their own movement vocabularies, learn to develop stage presence and develop an understanding of how this dance form expresses the dancer and the music. Each session we have a different focus. Summer 1 and 2 are technique and how to create beautiful dances, whether you prefer improvisation or choreography.

Summer 1: July 10-August 14 (no class July 31). 5 weeks $115.

Summer 2: August 21- September 18. 5 weeks $115.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
