NOTE: This class has been moved to the Womanspace Anjali Pavilion
Class size is limited. 6 ft. social distancing and face masks are required.
No previous dance experience required; great for all fitness levels — even those with physical limitations. (Contact Freya prior to class to discuss specific situation.) Belly dancing is incredibly empowering. Women and men of every size and ability level will have fun while building confidence, strength and grace. In this 8-week beginner course, you will learn the Egyptian roots of Belly dance and then experiment with modern tribal and fusion styles. Short combinations and choreography will be incorporated into technique and drills making it a great workout for your muscles and your mind. Some choreography will incorporate props such as veils, fan veils, canes, or finger cymbals which will be available to borrow in class. For those who want their own, a limited number of items and hip scarves may be available for purchase or references for online purchases will be shared.
Suggested equipment: yoga mat, close-fitting attire that allows full range of motion (for you and the instructor to see your body positions), a scarf or shawl to tie around your hips (to see your hip movements in the mirror), socks or soft ballet shoes only in the yoga studio.
Register by: 7/05 or 2 days before a single session.
