“Intro to Belly Dance” Workshop Monday December 29, 6p – 8p

beginnerworkshop fly

Known worldwide as the dance that ignites the spirit like no other dance form, belly dance was recently proven by scientists to provide unparalleled feel-good benefits, most notably a positive body image.

In this workshop, we will explore elegant movements, dynamic drills and intoxicating rhythms that comprise the wonderful world of belly dance.

You will learn the secret to smooth undulating movements, and how to develop core control and balance required for effortless shimmies and exciting hip movements!

Bring a water bottle and dress for comfort and for movement. We will dance in bare feet, socks or dance shoes/ballet slippers. If you have foot issues, please feel free to wear your dance sneakers. No street shoes or tennis shoes. Hip scarf is optional. For the safety and enjoyment of all students, we do not allow coin scarves.
