SPRING 2021 IS BELLY DANCE "SAMPLER" SEMESTER!
We will be working with a fascinating array of music and dance styles including: American Belly Dance, traditional Egyptian, Turkish Oryantal, Persian Pop, Afro-Persian Bandari, Lebanese and, of course, a Drum Solo! Seven choreographies and reviews!
DESCRIPTION & CURRICULUM:
Enjoy the magic, mystery and good fun of Belly Dance! This live online class is for students of all ages (8+), shapes, sizes and fitness levels. It is perfect for absolute beginners and it also progresses with new layers for returning beginners. New students who register by March 21 will get two Quick Start videos and we learn a new material or choreographies every week, details below!! This is a one-year progressive curriculum focusing on Hips and Heels in Semester #1, Arms and Altitude in Semester #2, Face and Fingers in Semester #2 and Full Body Flow for Semester #4.
WHY DO ZOOM WITH GINA? WHY NOT YOUTUBE OR SOMEONE ELSE?
Gina is constantly interacting with and giving feedback and encouragement to dancers. Gina does not teach to the camera. Gina teaches to the individual students who she is watching on her big screen monitor to give specific personal feedback on feet, weight placement, direction, arms …. the whole shebang. YouTube videos might teach individual moves, but they don't teach you how to dance.
FREE QUICK START VIDEOS:
New students who register by March 21 will receive access to two videos that explain and drill the basic repertoire of traveling and stationary beginner moves. These give you the jump start you need to succeed, and they are available to you as long as you are enrolled in Beginner Belly Dance with Gina. Returning students who register by the first class automatically get their Quick Start videos on the first day of class. Each semester, for the first year, students get a new set of Quick Start videos if they re-enroll sequentially.
WEEKLY CLASS VIDEOS, MUSIC AND CHOREOGRAPHY NOTES:
During the 12 week Beginner Belly Dance semester, one class per week will be recorded and made available to class participants on a weekly basis. You will also receive music and choreography notes. They will remain available to you as long as you are enrolled in Beginner Belly Dance with Gina.
LEARN SEVEN CHOREOGRAPHIES DURING SPRING 2021:
These choreographies are designed to progressively challenge new students, as well as to drill and practice new moves. The spring semester features an astonishing array of music and dance styles including: American Belly Dance, traditional Egyptian, Turkish Oryantal, Persian Pop, Afro-Persian Bandari, Lebanese and, of course, a Drum Solo! New and different material each week means you are never behind!
