Find increased confidence, grace and health through the ancient art of belly dance! In this beginner class you will dive into the foundational technique of this folkloric dance form and learn a bit about the culture and history of the dance. In every class we will break down the basic isolations used and then put them together to create graceful and exciting movements to music. We will also work with finger cymbals on a regular basis.  There will be sets available to borrow until you purchase your first set. (I highly recommend the Arabesque or Nefertiti from Saroyan Mastercrafts: SahiraBellyDances.com/SaroyanZills )
 
Twice a year we will learn a new choreography to perform at our student showcase in June and December.
