Explorations in Belly Dance

Wednesdays 7-8:15 pm with Li — New session begins on April 10th!


Explorations in Belly Dance is designed for beginner and continuing students who want to familiarize themselves with the basics of belly dance and get an overview of its many different styles and genres in a fun and inclusive atmosphere. Each class will begin with a dynamic warm-up after which you’ll spend time learning isolations, traveling moves, brief combinations, and an occasional choreography. 

In addition to our basic movements, this session we'll be focusing on types of undulations! Focusing deep into the muscles and mechanics to introduce, condition, and use undulatory movements both up to down and down to up, by the end of these six weeks you'll be able to identify the muscles involved, execute a body wave or undulation successfully and safely, and integrate this family of movements into your musicality and other movement sets. All levels of experience and styles are welcome in this class - whether you've never done a ribcage tilt before or if you've been practicing the arabic step for years. You'll sweat and make excellent friends with almost all the muscles in your torso at the same time! 

Is this the right class for me?

Explorations in Belly Dance is excellent preparation for further study in any style of belly dance. Everyone is welcome, regardless of dance background or lack thereof.

If you’re brand new to belly dance and aren’t sure where to start, we recommend taking our interactive quiz to help decide what class is right for you.
