Intro to Bellydance w/Safiya – Veil Magic @ Arabesque World Dance
Sep 21 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm

Our Intro to Bellydance Class is a Weekly, Ongoing Class…Every Monday at 5:30 PM!

Veil Dance is a beautiful flow art that has so many unique qualities! Safiya will help dancers in this belly dance style workshop to love their veil and treat it as a dance partner rather than a prop.

Students will learn to recognize the rhythms in the music and will practice utilizing the rests and accents to create flow and pauses in their veil dance. We will work on slinky and elegant traveling steps, wrapping and unwrapping of the veil, releasing and retrieving with ease, as well as internalized sinuous movements, and hypnotic, entrancing moves of a dancer with a veil…all to create a sensual and dynamic experience that can be used for personal enjoyment, or performance

Students are required to Pre-register for the LIVE – IN STUDIO Classes.

No prior experience needed to take these classes.

($45 for 6 Week Session, Drop in Fee is $12.00 or use a Class Card or ask about our Month Unlimited Fun Pass!)

“I Wanna Be Evil” Halloween Flapper Fusion Choreo @ Arabesque World Dance
Sep 21 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

“I Wanna be Evil” Halloween Flapper Infused choreography class with Amorina Stone. Friday Mornings at 10:30 AM and Monday Nights at 6:30 PM!
Come learn the Charleston in this fun flirty Flapper Fusion dance, inspired by moves prevalent in the roaring 20’s. We’re in the 20’s now and you’ll want to ring in this decade with practiced pizzazz and style so start now!
Each class will begin with warm-ups drilling 20’s moves, then combining them in combos that are in the choreography. Many of the moves have ankle twisting motions so wear ballet slippers, character shoes or even socks so that you have a good slide.
There will also be some slight modifications for anyone who has knee or ankle problems but never fear the modified version looks just as good!
The song “I Wanna Be Evil” by Kid Kasino is a modern version of Eartha Kitts and though it isn’t from the 20s the moves work swimmingly with it! Below is the youtube song link!

Cost: $12 Drop in Fee, $45 for 6 Wk Session, or use Month Unlimited Pass
