This is an ongoing class that starts at 9:15am, unless you get here at 9am for tea. ;-)
Thursday morning classes are a crazy low price! 4 for $20. 9:15-10am. Drills and Zils, all levels. You buy four classes and use them anytime within two months. (if you start in November, use your classes before the end of December) We have a great group of ever shifting dancers, and ever shifting props, focus- not a choreography class! Beginners are welcome if they already dance, and love it. (Club dancing, Zumba, ballroom, ballet-any dance will do)
My classes and workshops are always designed for self expression as well as technique- it's fun! Meetup members get 10% off my classes, except this one, as it is already discounted (heavily!)
Mondays at 6:15-7:15 is Level One, American Cabaret style. (lots of Turkish, some Egyptian, and 'other') Basic zil drills. Veil, for October. A short choreography is usually included . Pre registration, or call to make sure there is still room. [masked]
Wednesdays 8-9pm level Two and up. Basic moves will not be taught, but advanced ones might be. Special focus on improvisational, heartfelt dancing and working with live music, plus drills and Zils. Improve your power, grace, audience interactions, and confidence.
Nina is director of troupe Aubergine and a full time instructor and performer. She is fun, supportive, and can explain moves clearly. Veil, sword and fans can be part of the future sessions. Because classes are small, there is both personal attention, and input from the class helps determine where we go. Nina's vocabulary of moves, styles and props is huge.
Nina Amaya has been studying Middle Eastern dance, or belly dance, since 1997. She has performed and taught at schools from elementary through college, for groups from the Girl Scouts to Red Hats, at health clubs and at festivals and dance camps up and down the East Coast.
Zils, veils, hip scarves available at the studio, or bring your own. Classes are 4 for $60, except Thursday morning, where you get 4 for $20. A Great present to give your unemployed friend....
