Event description

Description

Come learn a short, fun and upbeat belly dance choreography! In this three-hour workshop, you'll be presented with several belly dance techniques and movements that will then be strung together with arm and foot patterns to create a short choreography. Students can expect energizing twists, dynamic hip movements, shimmies, a few super-slinky moves, and more, all set to funky, Middle Eastern-inspired dance music. The workshop will begin with a short warmup, followed by technique and movement, followed by putting it all together, and ending with a nice cool down. New to belly dance? We welcome and encourage you to join us! While having some dance experience is helpful, it is NOT required. Beginners will be challenged (in a good way!), and more advanced students will certainly be able to add embellishments as they see fit. Overall, the idea is to have FUN!

Things to Bring:

- Water
- Light snacks
- Yoga mat, if you have one (if not, no worries!)
- Wear comfortable clothing for movement (Yoga pants and a closely-fitted top or crop top are recommended. Baring your midriff is at your own comfort level and is not required for class.)
- If you have a hip scarf, feel free to don it!
