Dance has long been an activity of celebration, of marking important occasions, of expressing emotion, and most importantly - it's just plain fun! Let's dance!
During the six-week session we will build strength, and begin to learn to dance with a veil - an elegant, artful, flow of movement - that's also a great workout for the arms! Plus we will learn basic yoga stretching, and explore movement, music, play, and techniques derived from Middle Eastern dance.
Our goal is to re-open and strengthen channels of self-expression, as well as learn methods of movement for health and pleasure. Please wear comfortable clothes to move in, and bring a yoga mat for the stretching portion.
If you miss dancing for fun, shake it often, want to learn new things, or have ever been curious about belly dance, this is the perfect place to start! The series will be beginner-friendly, no previous experience required. Hip scarves will be available to borrow, or you can bring your own. We will be in bare feet and it's important to dress comfortably (costumes encouraged).
The cost of a veil is included in the class-session price, so once you sign up your veil is yours to keep!
