Belly Dance Technique and Performance Skills with Samira

Wednesdays 8:00-9:30 pm
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.
We also are preparing for Samira's Student Celebration, December 8th. Be a part of our show!
Dates: Summer 2: August 21st-September 18th.
Fees: $115.
Location: Central Maryland Youth ballet. 9570 Berger Rd ste A. Columbia, MD. 21046

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
