Expressions in Fusion Belly Dance

Wednesdays 8:20-9:35 pm with Li — New session begins on February 20th!


Expressions in Fusion Belly Dance is intended for students who have a grasp on movements and isolations shared among a variety of belly dance styles who want to start putting them together and applying them through combination, choreography, and improvisation exercises as a mode of self expression and exploration.

Apply your knowledge of belly dance isolations and movement in the earthy and expressive style of fusion belly dance!

Through a series of exercises, drills, and combinations, you will build stamina, precision, and control over movements that you can then apply in a variety of ways to bring your dance to life! Topics may include arm positions, foot patterns, layering, and traveling as well as featuring improvisation and choreography work.

Li’s background covers a variety of styles of fusion, but the aim of this class is to take discussions and exercises home and make them your own! A variety of styles of belly dance will be discussed to help you find the style/combination of styles that speaks most to you.

We are often taught not to take up space. To limit our movement, our bodies, and our steps in life. This session will focus on unlearning that behavior by enhancing your proprioception and situational awareness and encouraging you to claim your space through the use of drills, short combinations, and exercises designed to encourage, support, and challenge you whether as a soloist or as part of a group to TAKE UP SPACE!

Is this the right class for me?

Expressions in Fusion Belly Dance is open to intermediate beginners and up. Must know basic rules of posture (from any style of belly dance), as well as feel comfortable with basic belly dance isolations such as shoulder rolls, snake arms, chest diamonds and circles, hip diamonds and circles, undulations (including maya and taxeem), and shimmies.

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.
