This is beginning dance class that teaches the essence of the ancient art of belly dance. Belly dancing relieves emotional stress and tension in the body while empowering women to be comfortable with their bodies. Characterized by snake-like movements combined with sharp muscle isolations, this empowering style of dance develops strength and muscle tone while providing a fun, low impact workout. Classes feature yoga-inspired stretching and detailed instruction, but the main focus is enjoyment of the dance itself. Classes include learning a selected piece of choreography. Appropriate to all ages and body types, belly dance promotes balance in mind, body and spirit. Wear something you feel comfortable dancing in. We recommend wearing a long full skirt or loose pants and either short shirt /choli or a shirt that allows you to move freely…exposing the belly is not a requirement. Ethnic jewelry such as a coin belt or a scarf around your hips will help put you in the shimmy-dancing mood!
