This 6-week foundation course will be for beginners and those who would like to improve their belly dance technique. Each class will start with a 20 minute moderate warm-up with gentle stretching and toning exercises set to Middle Eastern music. Isolations of hips, rib cage and shoulders will be introduced. Basic movements will include circles, undulations and figure-8's. Travelling steps will provide a basis for practicing these movements in simple combinations. Elementary concepts will be reinforced with the introduction of an original choreography. Information will also be provided on resources for music and costuming, as well as some general history surrounding this ancient art form.
Classes are held on TUESDAYS from 6:00 to 7:00 PM and on WEDNESDAYS from 7:00 until 8:00 PM, at 16 Union Ave, Suite 3-K, Westfield, MA, 01085. Summer Special pricing of $50 per person entitles the student to participate in as many Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday classes as they wish during the 6-week summer session.
