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. If you register by Sunday, January 16, you will get two Quick Start videos and you’ll learn a new material or choreographies every week!! See 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 (OR IN PERSON CLASSES) WITH GINA? WHY NOT YOUTUBE OR SOMEONE ELSE?
Gina is constantly interacting with and giving feedback and encouragement to dancers. On Zoom, 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.
FREE QUICK START VIDEO BONUSES:
New students who register by Sunday, January 16 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 automatically get their Quick Start videos on the first day of class.
WEEKLY CLASS VIDEOS:
During the 8 week Beginner Belly Dance semester, one class per week will be recorded and made available to class participants on a weekly basis. They will be available to you as long as you are enrolled in Beginner Belly Dance with Gina.
WINTER 2022: LEARN FIVE MINI-CHOREOGRAPHIES:
The focus for the winter semester is exploring beginner Belly Dance through different Belly Dance rhythms. From the classic Belady rhythm, to the earthy Saidi, into the snakey Chiftitelli and onto the 10/8 Semai, both new and returning Beginners will get a sense of how to dance to each of these rhythms. Each has a different energy, purpose and expression and ..... you'll even get to dance to a fusion-y Black Eyed Peas song. Can you guess which one? This is a short 8 week semester for those who would like to bring increased energy and diversity to their winter.
