Thursday evenings weekly at 6:30 PM, Belly Dance FUNdamentals Classes at Arabesque World Dance w/ master Teacher Safiya Nawaar!
What is Raqs Sharqi/Eastern Dance? When did the style we now know as Raqs Sharqi come into existence? What are some of the Stylistic markers that identify it?
Students are going to enjoy a bit of Belly Dance History, along with the beautiful movements and dance phrases that make this style one of Safiya’s favorites!
We will explore use of props such as veil, and sagat. Loaners are available at the studio, but you can also bring or buy your own!
More info will be discussed in class!
Be prepared to move like you never have before, as we explore our deep muscle control, and our inner goddesses.
Each class we will break down the moves from the ground up, examine different ways to execute the moves, and ways to make them personalized for each dancer, how to transition from one move to another with grace and intent, and we will explore how you can stash these moves into your improvisational repertoire. 😉
New Students are welcome to join at any time, as we will be working on new moves, and reviewing older ones every week, and exploring Safiya’s extensive collection of Classic Egyptian songs!
RSVP to the event page for our weekly updates on class content 😉
Just great Basic Belly Dance Techniques, Combos, Drills, Stagecraft and concepts to help students build a strong foundation for their dance.
No prior experience needed to take these classes, and they are appropriate for Beginners to Intermediate Level students.
This class is all about artistry and dance. You never know what Safiya will pull out of her bag of tricks!
Drop In students are ALWAYS Welcome 😉
