This Bellydance class begins with attention to proper alignment, and centering, leading into a fluid warm-up, technique, and combinations. Turns and travel steps are included in the “across the floor” segment of class. We usually close our class with a structured improvisation to wind down, and draw from within. Sherine and Mariyah are passionate dancers, and dedicated teachers that offer a supportive, and joyous atmosphere for students seeking to enrich their lives with dance. Style is mainly Egyptian and Turkish Oriental (Raqs Sharqi), including classic, modern, folkloric, and a flair of fusion.
