KIDS BELLYDANCE (AGES 3 & UP)- Studying the Art of Bellydancing is great for any age! This class is designed to teach kids proper dance technique, fun combinations, and music comprehension. For parents who would like for their children to continue with bellydance for future performance/competition opportunities, please contact me to develop a plan.
ADVANCED/CHOREOGRAPHY SESSION- This is a 5 week session for intermediate/advanced dancers who want to grow in their technique, knowledge, performance skills, and learn how to choreograph with different styles of Middle Eastern Dance styles/songs. We will be working on technique on a higher level, across the floor exercises, advanced turns, drills, and learning a new choreography per session (props may be included). Please register by contacting me to save your spot. I have designed this class to help dancers become the beautiful Oriental Dancer's that they are while improving their performance and/or competition skills.
Deciding to move up a level or stay in the same level depends on your dance intentions! It is best to practice your learned techniques + movements until your body gains muscle memory. If taking the classes for fun and fitness, the level you want to be in is based on your preference. All classes are gender neutral <3
