This class provides a basic dance vocabulary of movements
common to several styles (Egyptian, American Cabaret, and Tribal
Fusion) of belly dance. The session will introduce basic hip work,
upper body lifts and circles, traveling steps and arm patterns
designed for a new dancer, but offer enough variation to keep a
more experienced dancer’s skills sharp. Please wear comfortable
clothing, which will allow you to stretch and move, and bare feet
or soft-soled slippers or shoes.
