What you'll learn in this belly dance class:

First time in belly dance? Then this is the class for you! This primer class is where you start; helping you better in understand the movements that create the foundation of all styles of belly dance - technique through isolations and muscular training. 

This class focuses on break down of basic belly dance steps so that you begin with the correct methods to 'do' any of the common movements. Adds up to a great no-impact workout however the goal of the class is learning the verbiage, proper posture & being introduced to the different facets of Mid-East Dance.

As a new student to this art form we do recommend you take this class 1 full 7-week session before starting any of our other beginner belly dance classes.

Note:
  • You need no prior dance experience for this class. A minimum of 5 students per offering is needed for each class by the end of week 1 for it to run for the full session.
  • No long skirts, as Sonya, Christiana, Jonsey & Kamrah need to evaluate your knees & lower back position.
Class Attire:
  • Be Comfy! No jeans, mini skirts, or street clothes; also no baggy T-shirts, long skirts or sweat suits for students in the Fundamental level, green & blue star (we need to see knee position).
  • For Belly Dance: Exercize/Yoga pants, or leggings with a fitted T-shirt, a tank top or sports bra that can show lower back position; bare feet, socks or dance shoes. NO STREET SHOES.
  • Also, any scarf or shawl to tie low around your hips is very useful to see your hip movements in the mirror.

Refund Policy
Tuition once paid is non-refundable.

If the class does not meet the minimum requirement of 5 students, you will have a class on week 1. However, if by the 1st day of week 2 there's still not the minimum number of students registered then you will get a phone call asking if you'd like to switch to another weekly offering. If that does not work with your schedule we will refund the session price minus a single-class cost (for week 1).
