Belly Dance Level 2 Plus- This one and a half hour class is a multi level class geared towards belly dancers with some class experience that want to brush up on and drill all the basics (and some “not so basic”). We will work on the foundations of belly dance; posture, arms and hands, steps, spins and turns, shimmies traveling and isolations. Bring your sagat or zills!
We will also further develop your dance vocabulary and technique while refining your lines, movements, transitions, musicality, expression and understanding of this beautiful art. Different parts of a dance show will be explored and props will also be covered over different sessions.
Class format will include warm-up and conditioning, arms, sagat drill, stationary drills, across the floor, improvisation follow, concepts of improvisation and choreography and cool down. Belly Dance Level 2 is not for novice dancers. You will be expected to practice at home and do homework. Students also do exercises to learn to access their own movement vocabularies, learn to develop stage presence and develop an understanding of how this dance form expresses the dancer and the music.
Summer session July 7-September 17. No class August 6. 10 weeks.
