What you'll learn in this belly dance class:

Learn to belly dance in a way that lifts your heart, opens your mind, and strengthens your body. Whether you’re a beginner or a more seasoned dancer (of any style), this class will help you find the ease and joy of dancing with fluidity, precision, and grace – all while preventing injury by moving mindfully. By tuning into the energy naturally flowing through our bodies, we will let go of the stress of thinking about how to dance, and instead enjoy feeling the movement and music. Class begins with a thorough review of proper alignment & energy awareness, and a fun, full-body warm-up that will introduce some belly dance (Arabic: Raqs Sharqi) movements and styling. 

We will naturally flow with the music, briefly noting its origin and meaning, while breaking down the essentials of Middle Eastern belly dance. We will weave those moves together in short combinations, focusing on both technique and artistry, and end class with deep stretching and a cool-down to gently increase flexibility and prevent soreness. Please wear form-fitting leggings of any length; no loose pants or long skirts, as Rose needs to evaluate your knees & lower back position.

  • Be Comfy! No jeans, mini skirts, or street clothes; also no baggy T-shirts, long skirts or sweat suits for students in the Fundamental level, green & blue star (we need to see knee position).
  • For Belly Dance: Exercize/Yoga pants, or leggings with a fitted T-shirt, a tank top or sports bra that can show lower back position; bare feet, socks or dance shoes. NO STREET SHOES.
  • Also, any scarf or shawl to tie low around your hips is very useful to see your hip movements in the mirror.
  • For Hip Scarfs, Shawls, Jewelry, Unique Costuming & Exotic Accoutrements from the Orient and beyond we offer these for sale in our Boutique, or visit our twice annual Secondhand Souk Costume Swaps!

Refund Policy
Tuition once paid is non-refundable.

If the class does not meet the minimum requirement of 5 students, you will have a class on week 1. However, if by the 1st day of week 2 there's still not the minimum number of students registered then you will get a phone call asking if you'd like to switch to another weekly offering. If that does not work with your schedule we will refund the session price minus a single-class cost (for week 1).
