Specialty Belly Dance Class
The "Speciality Belly Dance" class series is a multi level topic based class. This means that we take and in depth look at a specific topic in belly dance and apply it to what you already know reguardless of your level of dance. Throughout the 8 week class you will strengthen that skill as well as your abilites in belly dance.

Each 8 week session we change the topic to learn something comepletely new. This session we will be exploring...
Come to this class to learn how to belly dance while sword balancing. Don't worry you will learn both in class ;) This class will really help you hone those isolations and force you to be completely in tune with you body and suroundings. A sword is not required but if you have a sword please bring it with you to class. Sutable substitutes will be provided to those who do not have swords available. If you would like to buy a sword I would highly suggest you buy the "Baladay Scimitar" by Kult of Athena. They are well balanced and reasonably priced.

We will have lots of fun with more unique belly dance games, creative conditioning, and combinations that will give both your body and mind a workout.
