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 Sept 27, 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 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.
FREE QUICK START VIDEOS:
New students who register by Sept 27 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 12 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.
LEARN SEVEN CHOREOGRAPHIES:
These choreographies are designed to progressively challenge new students, as well as to drill and practice new moves. Gina will spice up the beginner curriculum with different styles and ethnic specialties each semester. This Fall we will focus on Turkish dance including a variety of Turkish dance material – pop songs, Turkish-influenced old style American cabaret, Turkish Romany, Chiftitelli, 9 beat Karsilama, a drum solo, Turkish folk dance and more. New and different material each week means you are never behind!
