Belly Dance Fitness
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 Sharqi 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 Sharqi and ceremonial dances. Egyptian Cabaret style is the most classical form of Raqs Sharqi. 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. This class draws from various styles of Belly Dance for a full-body workout. Begin with an easy warm-up, stretches, isolations, learn fun techniques and combinations. Unwind and dance with me!
Tahitian Dance Drills
Tahitian Dance is called Ori Tahiti. It is a beautiful dance art form from French Polynesia. The hips move to the beat of the drum. The two main dances from Tahiti are the O’tea drum dance and the Aparima storytelling dance. This class focuses on the exciting movement of the Tahitian Islands to create a culminating and exciting dance and workout experience. Class ends with a short routine giving the participant a better understanding of this art form while getting an exuberant workout.
Stretch for Dancers
If you are dancing, working out, do any type of exercise, or even if you are not very active, your body needs stretching. This is a 20-minute focus on exercises, ergonomic movement, and stretch warm-ups essential for workout longevity. Increase flexibility in the hips, shoulders, hamstrings while strengthening your ankles. Utilize these types of exercises before your other Moxie classes.
