Adventures in Bellywood $135.60
7:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Bollywood and Bellydance come together with fun and funky moves. While lower impact than a full on Bollywood class, don’t let that fool you. Your brain and body will learn to work together to create beautiful patterns and shapes in dance.

We’ll explore a variety of dance moves from both schools, and put them together to both class Bollywood movie music as well as modern fusion music

Some dance experience is good so that you have some body awareness.

  1. Pingback: W00T- we did it again! « Halyma

  2. Congrats to all involved. As a performer I liked the lights panning the audience , made it less of a BLACK VOID. As an audience member I thought the decor was nice, the sound was good , the intros to the point with little down time between numbers. As always a wonderful opportunity for anyone interested in Belly Dance, and it’s many offshoot fusion styles, to strut their stuff. The atmosphere was relaxed and everyone seemed to be having a good time.
