Belly Dance Basics
(Adults and Youth 16+)
Please join instructor Gwendolyn as we explore the beautiful and graceful movements of belly dancing in a fun, social environment. Our main focus is to teach basic belly dance movements and foundations, through
gentle repetition, and will also include an introduction of basic belly dance
rhythms and props. Students will learn a general history of the dance
as it travels from its roots in the Middle East to its current resurgence in
the West. Each class will consist of a gentle warm-up, review of proper
dance posture, break down of basic movements and cool-down. This
class is for those with little or no previous belly dance experience or those
looking for a fun, new way to add a little exercise to their life. Please wear
comfortable loose clothing you can move around in. Min 5 / Max 15.
