About this Event
REGISTRATION CLOSES ON APRIL 14th.
Learn to belly dance! Come try this beautiful dance form, inspired by traditional dances of the Middle East and North Africa. Belly dancing is a terrific workout that promotes good posture, strengthens core muscles, and helps you develop coordination and control over your movements. Great for people of any size, shape and gender.
In this dance, different parts of the body are moved independently and layered to make a unity. Every part of your body will participate, from your toes to your fingertips, your head and also your heart, as you develop body awareness and coordination. Regardless of your age or body type, you can always learn something from this dance.
In this course, Seyyide will present the foundations of belly dance, including technique and combos suitable for beginner students.

IMPORTANT NOTES DUE TO THE COVID PANDEMIC
We appreciate to keep ourselves and all students as safe as possible.
- You will be asked to submit copy of your certification of COVID vaccination once before the event starts. If you are not fully immunized (two doses and booster) you will need to agree to wear a mask inside the studio at all times (see advisory by Cambridge city below).
- Masks will be optional for the vaccinated people: the mask mandate was lifted for the City of Cambridge as of 3/14, so fully vaccinated students should feel free to mask or not mask, whichever they feel it’s safer for them.
- Capacity will be kept at a maximum of 20 students to allow reasonable distancing to minimize any possible transmission.
“Effective February 15, 2022: A fully vaccinated individual should wear a mask indoors if you have a weakened immune system, or if you are at increased risk for severe disease because of your age or an underlying medical condition, or if someone in your household has a weakened immune system, is at increased risk for severe disease or is unvaccinated. Individuals who are not fully vaccinated should continue to wear a mask indoors.”
We will frequently review any covid policy changes made by City and State and adjust accordingly with the goal of keeping all students, teachers and staff safe at the studio.
Students are encouraged to maintain basic hygiene, including hand washing as necessary. Hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes may be available for use in all studios, but feel free to bring your own.
Note about parking: The parking lot in the premises is no longer available for studio personnel or visitors. You can find parking on the street (metered spots available in all surrounding streets, and you only need to feed them until 8:00 pm). The studio is also very accessible by public transportation (buses and the red line bring you nearby).
