Description

Experience this earthy and sensual dance, and get a light cardio workout and all-over body toning. Learn or sharpen traditional Belly Dance movements from fiery hip-locks and shimmies, to slow serpentine undulations. Discover Egyptian, Cabaret, and Turkish style movements and fun combinations. Develop poise, and gain a more graceful and fluid body. Each class will build on the next, working on technique, choreography, and improvisation. Each session will cover new movements and feature a new choreography. This multi-level class is suitable for adults and teens in moderate physical condition. All genders welcome. Intermediate/advanced level students will be guided to add double/triple locks and layer shimmies on movements.

Pre-Register Anytime

If you Drop-In to the first class of a session, you can register for the remainder of the session prior to the 2nd class, by calling Dan (CCCA) at (617) 642-1444, and you'll pay the remainder of the Pre-Registration rate ($50 - $14 = $36). And if you refer another student who registers, you'll receive $5 discount!
