I have been teaching online via Zoom for several years now. My featured classes, Ballet – Live Your Dream, Hula Dance, Cheer Dance, and Kids Yoga 30 Minute Stretch and Imaginative Play are still available. These classes are multi-course classes for grade school kids.
I am excited to now be offering exclusive teen classes in Belly Dance Fitness.
Class for preteens and teenagers who have an interest in the Belly Dance arts.
Belly Dance is an art form stemming from Middle Eastern dance cultures throughout Egypt, Turkey, Greece, Lebanon, and many other countries with similar backgrounds. The term Raqs Sharqui is the formal name of this type of dance involving specified movements with the hips, shoulders, and stomach. There is a lot involved in relation to types of Raqs Sharqui and ceremonial dances. Egyptian Cabaret style is the most classical form of Raqs Sharqui. This is a high arts type of dance performed on stage and at prestigious venues throughout the world in a theatrical setting. There are also many fusion dances specifically in the west such as Tribal Belly Dance.
In this class, dancers will begin with a warm-up/stretch followed by instruction for hip drops, undulations, shimmies, and other basic Belly Dance movement. After a breakdown of each basic movement, we will practice drills and phrases throughout class before cooling down.
