Geek Slink Belly Dance

Join Geek Physique we continue to make workouts more FUN!!!

Geek Slink is a unique Belly Dance experience designed for anyone and everyone interested in Belly Dance. At its heart, Belly Dance (or Oriental Dance) is a folkloric dance style used at celebrations by every member of the family. In that spirit, Geek Slink encourages people of all sizes and ages to get your shimmy on, burn some fat, and strengthen your core while having the time of your life!

***Gentlemen are welcome to participate as well!!!**

"We have come here to chew bubble gum and shimmy...and we're all out of bubble gum!"

Instructor Shanaz Bahara will walk you through the ins and outs of Belly Dance using a foundation of muscle-building moves. Participants will begin with a warm up that will help with flexibility and core strength, and from there you’ll be learning moves like the “Mecha Shiva”, the “Saffron”, and the “Boom-Stick”.

There is $5 fee for this event, payable directly to the Instructor. Students are encouraged to bring a yoga mat or towel for the warm up (not mandatory), and water to stay hydrated. Please wear yoga or comfortable workout pants and a comfortable t-shirt that isn’t too baggy. Please no coined hip scarves! We will have some noiseless hip wraps available to borrow, or you may bring one of your own.

**Attendees under the age of 18 are welcome but will need a legal guardian present to participate**

    I'm sorry, I can't find the website you gave earlier for the drills. Would like to try to drill over the this next break. :)

    You guys are ALWAYS the light of my week. Great job this session. Keep those booties workin' through the break, and we'll reconvene in January!

    I always find myself walking funny the next day due to all those shimmy drills! My glutes just won't work right for a while... and that's a GOOD thing!
