Teen girls have to face many challenges and bellydance is a great way to build their self-confidence, get exercise and have fun. Unlike other types of dance, there is no “right” body type for bellydance and no advantage to having previous dance training. In Western society, we just aren’t taught to isolate parts of our core, so in bellydance everyone starts off at square one. If your daughter loves dance, it is a great way to diversify her training and participate in a type of dance (American Tribal Style®) that is more like a team sport. If your daughter has never danced before and feels like she might be too old to start, bellydance is perfect!
The teens will learn level one and two movements from the Fat Chance Bellydance ATS® vocabulary, as well as how to dance in an improvisational format. ATS® encourages teamwork, has an emphasis on making the group look good and synchronized instead of having individual “stars”, and gives dancers an opportunity to lead and follow depending on their comfort level.
Lisa combines her love of bellydance with her training as a child therapist to create a challenging and supportive environment for your teen to grow and stretch herself. Members of this class will also be eligible to perform whenever Lisa’s troupe, Happy Hips, is performing. Although this is not required, it is a wonderful way to build self-confidence. Hope your teen can join us!
This class is suitable for middle and high school aged children. Hip scarves are available to borrow or purchase; students should wear comfortable clothing, and are encouraged to wear light socks, dance shoes or bare feet during class.
Look for a new session starting later this summer.
Drop-ins welcome as space permits at $13 per class. Maximum enrollment: 12 students
