Beginner Belly Dance
Learn to shimmy in style in this introduction to the beautiful art of belly dance. You’ll practice foundation movements for the hips, torso, arms, and head – all while dancing to the latest music from Egypt. Ananke breaks down each movement in easy to follow progressions. No experience required. Two left feet okay! Choreography, with an opportunity to perform in the student recital, taught in the spring and fall. Veil technique taught alternating semesters.
Advanced Beginner Belly Dance
Review foundation movements and then begin to incorporate more advanced techniques such as layering and traveling. You’ll also study musicality, transitions, and stylistic interpretation. Successful completion of Ananke’s Beginner level (or the equivalent with another qualified instructor) required. Choreography, with an opportunity to perform in the student recital, taught in the spring and fall. Veil technique taught alternating semesters.
