Bellydance Basics

Saturday, December 10th at 2pm

90 minutes long. $15 per person.

ome say bellydance is one of the oldest forms of dance - having deep roots in women's circles preparing for marriage, birth, and celebration of life. The exotic and sensual movements in bellydance, also known as raqs sharqi, are inherent to the female bone and muscular structure. These undulating movements work with the figure to isolate and move both with staccato and smoothness. Bellydance helps to tone core muscles in the torso, and is a meditative workout that attunes yourself to your body. A great way to build confidence and learn to love your body exactly as it is - we all have beauty and feminine power in our own ways despite what advertisements and marketing might suggest to us. Learning the basics of bellydance will free up your body in ways you didn't know about before, enhancing your dance, daily movements, thoughts, and well... more!


In this workshop, we'll focus on learning a bit of bellydance history, getting in tune with our bodies with a quick stretch & warm up, and refining basic bellydance movements. We'll learn a short combination for you to show off later! All levels welcome.  Ladies & gentlemen, all ages, all welcome.
