Belly Dance

In this class, you will learn old and contemporary belly dance styles whilst keeping a keen awareness of grace and elegance of movement.  You are taken through the details of belly dance technique and will be able to learn steps and combinations whilst being attentive to musicality.  In addition to learning undulation of the torso and spine in all directions, special attention will also be paid to travelling steps, folkloric elements, hand gestures, arm movements, “zills” and veil technique.

You will learn how to guide the audience’s visual attention to different aspects within your dance frame; the eye being guided from the torso to the elegant hand and arm movements to leg action and feet and the breezy swift lightness of the veil action leaving traces of its own movement in the air.
