Beginning Belly Dancing: Session III (activecommunities.com)
Now that you have all the details, I thought I would take a minute to answer a couple of common questions!
First the question I get the most is what do I wear?
Comfy, easy to move in clothes, like yoga pants, leggings, tank tops, t-shirts or sports bras are the best. Most people dance in socks or bare feet, and hip scarves are more than welcome to be worn. I do have information on a couple of vendors you can order hip scarves and dance shoes from if you are interested.
What happens in a typical class?
In the first class we break down posture, warm up moves, balance drills and basic isolations of the hips and chest. Everything we do in those drills are the foundations for your dance. After that we move onto learning a couple of basic shimmies, and circles. Last we breakdown our cool down stretches so you don’t end up sore and tight the next day.
Each week we move through our basic drills, reviewing everything from the week before then add in a new move or two and eventually take those moves to build a small combination using them.
