BELLYDANCE

Open Level Bellydance: Tuesdays at 8:15pm

Bellydance Techniques: Saturdays at 10:00am

Level: All levels welcome; so while beginner students learn basic yet challenging movements, advanced students are given layering and isolations.

Intensity: Students perform low to high impact movements.

Description: Students tone and firm their muscles through isolations as they learn ancient middle-eastern rhythms.  Styles taught include Turkish, Egyptian Raqs Sharqi, American cabaret, and more.  Zills, veils, canes, and trays are sometimes introduced to these fun cultural classes. 

What to wear: Belly dancing scarves are optional and helpful. Students wear clothing that allows the instructor to be able to see how muscles are being engaged. Barefoot is appropriate.
