Arabesque Dance Studios - Award-Winning Belly Dance!
Join Sonya, the owner of Arabesque, every Monday for 60 minutes of belly dance fundamentals!
This beginner-intermediate level class expands on the intro-level material* to teach you a wider vocabulary of basic belly dance (traditional Middle Eastern “Raqs Sharqi”) movements, traveling steps & turns common to the “classic” Egyptian-style of Mid-East dance, and, most importantly, how to connect them. Here you learn where in the music these steps are best used, why we do it, & more about where in the world it comes from.
Class works on clean technique with full break-downs & step-combos that can improve your posture, flexibility, balance & grace through muscle isolation and control in the context of a choreography.
*This class is ideal for your first 2-12 months of your training, however you should stay in this level (beginner-intermediate) until all these fundamental moves are comfortable to you. You will always come away with something new from week-to-week, session-to-session, even year-to-year.
*The same material is covered in each of the weekly Belly Dance Fundamentals classes, therefore you can attend the day that works best with your schedule.
