Belly Dancing

 * TRIBAL STYLE BELLY DANCE  - Level I

This class is a fusion of traditional Middle Eastern and flokloric dance movements from India, Central Asia, the Middle East, North Africa, and Spain.. Performed as a "tribe" using sychinchronized group improvisation, each group develops it's own vocabulary of controlled earthy, and mesmerizing  movements, allowing a "lead and follow" format.

One of the most rewarding aspects of this dance is the camaraderie that develops between dancers from working together in an improvisational setting.

Each dancer learns to communicate through body language while staying mentally aware of their partners at all times.


Great for actors

or

those  just wanting to try something new !!!

 Fee for single drop-In classes .... $15 each

* PRE-PILATES PLUS

As a long time choreographer, dance instructor, and physical educator, I have often seen unnecessary physical injury. Those who exercise without proper technique and with too much enthusiasm may run the risk of traumatic athritis and/or a long list of orthopedic complications. Because there are so many choices in the world of fitness today, people do not always take the time to learn HOW to train correctly. Through a simple series of fundamental exercises- I will help you to analyze and diagnose you own body's accurate alignment. Regardless of how YOU workout, this class will lead you to a healthier and more progressive program of fitness.
