Level 1 Bellydance Foundations

Studio Deep Roots

This class requires registration and is taught in 6 week sessions. Check the website to make sure you start on the first week, or drop-in for your first class anytime for $5. Contact the instructor to arrange a drop-in and join us! This level will get you moving to the tribal groove, with an introduction to the fundamentals of tribal movement and partner work, isolations, & strength-building. We’ll get you dancing from the very first class! Geared toward the new student, but vital to continuing students for refinement, this class establishes a strong foundation for every dancer. Even if you have taken tribal and/or other bellydance classes before, this class will be instrumental in familiarizing students specifically with Deep Roots’ particular style. Classes include a gentle warm-up, then we cover in detail one slow and one fast concept, and finally we work with transitions and partnering concepts. Students will need to purchase high quality student zils (finger cymbals). We highly recommend Saroyan Mastercrafts, which you can purchase easily online: Afghanis or The Grecian are our preferred styles. More info at http://www.deeprootsdance.com/

Bellydance Skills n' Drills

Studio Deep Roots

A fun challenge for ALL LEVELS, ALL STYLES. You are invited to work at your own pace, adding layers of difficulty as you feel ready. We start with drills of basic movement concepts. We work with traveling and layering, and then finish with mini combos putting it all-together. This is an opportunity to get into your body, be playful, and push your limits in a joy-filled, encouraging class atmosphere. No matter what style you study, everyone will take home some new tools to add to their dancer tool-belt.
