***Geek Slink class tonight is CANCELLED*** This storm is going to be bad, so please drive carefully and we will see you next week!
Brace yourself...SHIMMIES are coming! That's right, Geek Slink is back for the 2014 season with GPS and Geek Physique!
Geek Slink is a casual belly dance class for folks of all ages, sizes and character classes. Total n00bs as well as seasoned veterans with higher level XP are all welcome to come and shimmy with us! If you are new, this is a great way to test the waters and see if you enjoy the fluidity and amazing core building strength of Middle Eastern Dance. But experienced dancers of any style are welcome to join in too (we have Egyptian, ATS, and Fusion students who love to come dance with us too!). You'll learn moves like the Boromir, the Platform 9 and 3/4, the Houses of Hogwarts, and the Inevitable Betrayal.
Here's the run down. Students show up and we do a gentle stretch and warm up followed by the study of 2-4 moves per class. These moves then get woven together to use in a dance. The dance changes from session to session, so trust me, you won't be seeing "Game On!" right away. Our songs usually have a geeky twist and are appropriate for all ages. You'll want to wear yoga pants or comfy dance bottoms as well as a form fitting shirt. NO COIN SCARVES PLEASE! While they are pretty, they are super distracting. Fringe belts or hip scarves are welcome, but there will be a few available to borrow as well. Find a belt, find a spot, keep on flyin'.
Class cost is $5.00 (which covers material cost and travel for the instructor)
This is a casual 'workshop' style class! Please understand that as Geek Slink frequently has fairly large attendance numbers, 1 on 1 individual assistance is not always possible. DO expect, however, to have a lot of fun in a no pressure, safe space environment.
You may want to bring the following:
-Yoga mat or towel for comfort during stretching
-Socks of dance thongs for your feet
-A confetti cannon
-A minion of angry zombies
-Your assistant, as long as his name is Scarface (his appearance is quite disturbing, but I assure you, he's harmless enough)
No Cylons or Tribbles please. They are hard to control and get into everything.
