What to expect in this belly dance class:
The warm up: Every belly dance class starts with a warm up that gets our body moving and challenges the muscles to wake up. It is low impact with high energy. Adjustments and adaptations are suggested based on individual student needs and level of fitness. The warm up gets us to change our posture and be fully ready for learning technique.
Technique: Movement is broken down in a variety of ways so each student understands how our muscles and skeleton help us move safely. I use visual aids, encourage hands on feeling, offer adjustments, and share belly dance resources (video, music, etc) outside of class. Each week we have a slightly different focus that builds on the class before. For experienced dancers additional layers of challenge are offered. For beginners we start with the belly dance basics and provide lots of enthusiastic encouragement for success.
Choreography: Each series has a choreography focus. You might be helping build the group choreography, or learning one that I have created. I utilize a wide variety of tools for building and assisting with learning choreography. It’s not as scary as it sounds.
