Belly Dancing is a beautiful and graceful art form that originated from the Middle East. Also known as Raks Sharqi, Egyptian Cabaret, and Oriental Dance, this dance captures your heart and soul with the hypnotic movements, the rhythms of the Middle East and the beautiful costuming.
Oriental Dance Fusion explores the basic vocabulary associated with Belly Dancing and then spices it up by combining it with other dance styles like Jazz and Bollywood. Come and Join Debbie for this 3-hour workshop.
The class will begin with some of the basics of Belly dance, we will look at Oriental dance technique, posture, and clean isolations. We will drill the movements to music and practice some fun and funky combinations with fusion elements. The session will include a Yoga based cool down and deep stretch at the end of the workshop. Be prepared to have fun, wear comfortable clothing that is not too constricting and brings a bottle of water. Debbie will supply some hip belts you can wear at the workshop to get you into the Belly Dance Groove.
