These classes will be designed to work with dancers who have experience, and will be open to being pushed to help generate their own class content, explore their own strengths and creativity. Things will get crazy and fun.

Note:Less experienced students will be fine if they already have a good basic technique.

One guideline would be Halyma’s Lessons on DVD to understand the minimum expectations for the Creative Intermediate Bellydance class. They are available online and will be available in person the first night for registered students at a discounted rate.

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.

Sign up for BOTH classes to get a discount!

10% discount to take both classes. 2 hours/ week for 12 weeks: $244.08

  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.
