Belly Dance Essentials — Thursday @ 7:15pm — Bring your cymbals!
Students will continue to refine their technique with drills designed to promote strength and muscular awareness. Each class session will have a specialty focus such as props (finger cymbals, veil, etc) or other Middle Eastern dance concepts. Simple traveling steps and dance combinations will be included to introduce students to musical phrasing and choreography. This class is meant to be taken continuously for a year and revisited as often as topics interest you. Prerequisite: Bellydance Basics, drop-ins with approval only.
