NB: Intermediate/Advanced students need at least 6 to 12 months belly dance experience as they will be learning choreographies created by Deb from the full Syllabus Levels 1 to 4. Belly Dancing for beginners classes are also offered. No class on 12 August.
Belly Dance, with its lively music, has a long, colourful and exotic history. It is also an enjoyable, low-impact dance workout that improves body strength and tone; especially core, buttocks, legs and arms. Adult classes are for all ages, sizes and levels of fitness. Strength and flexibility exercises help the less-able to master dance techniques.
Troupe is for participants with at least 6-12 months of belly dance experience.
Members of the Troupe class will learn Choreography and relative techniques which includes props such as Veil, Double Veil, Wings, Cane and Zills (finger cymbals). You will also learn to identify different Arabic rhythms and how to relate this to your belly dance movement using either choreography drills or improvisation.
Please bring: Yoga mat and water bottle. Dance shoes & hip belt (optional). Bare feet OK. Arrive five minutes before session time
