Fundamentals of Tribal Belly Dance classes are presented in the exciting Tribal Style (lead/follow improvisation) format. Fundamentals of belly dance technique are emphasized, with specific attention to tribal dance posture and stance, arm positioning, safe ways to warm up and cool down, tips for performing, how to play finger cymbals (zils), and most of all, how to have fun and enjoy yourself while learning this beautiful art form. If you love to dance, you will love this class!
Zils and hip scarves are available to borrow or purchase; students should wear form-fitting exercise pants, shorts or capris, a comfortable top that allows the instructor to view torso movements, and are encouraged to wear light socks, dance shoes or bare feet during class.
This class is recommended for students who are new to tribal belly dance/group improvisation or who would like to brush up on the basic vocabulary of this style of dance. While this is not a strictly ATS® class, we do cover much of the fundamental ATS® vocabulary as part of the format.
Session begins on April 3 based on a minimum of 4 preregistered students. Drop-ins welcome as space permits at $18 per class. Maximum enrollment: 12 students. Class dates are April 3, 10, 17, 24, May 1 & 8.
***This session features a fun and upbeat choreography that all participants will be invited to perform at WIM’s Spring Hafla on May 20!***
