Core Bellydance: Powerful Hips and Fluid Finger Cymbals
Class Series in Manhattan June 8th-29th
Core Bellydance Drills 7pm-8pm
This one hour class will focus on strong, fluid hipwork, undulations, abdominal isolations and shimmies. In other words, our ‘Core’ technique in bellydance. I will teach my own practice methods for building strength stamina, flexibility and physical expression. Combinations will focus on merging this strong core technique seamlessly with footwork and graceful upper body.
Freedom with Finger Cymbals: Intuitive practice with Zills 8pm-9pm
Playing finger cymbals takes practice! Especially for a student whose dancing is already up to a certain level, adding the playing of cymbals can feel frustrating rather than fun. I will teach you my own practice methods using both stationary and dancing cymbal drills to help make practice more enjoyable and build consistency. We will explore playing with a different piece of music each week.
Monday evening classes are open to all levels, but best suited towards students with some experience.
Where: Cap 21 Studios, 18 W.18th St. Studio 502
