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: If you register by Sunday, March 19, you will get two Quick Start videos. Everyone learns 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.
SPRING SEMESTER 2023:
Enjoy DOUBLE THE DANCE this Spring! Come to up to 2 classes per week for the price of one!! That's half-price classes! You can attend in-person, on Zoom, or both, as your schedule and distance allow. Moms and daughters who sign up for just Zoom classes also get two people for the price of 1 (ie two people on one screen for the price of one person, but you can come twice per week [online only].) That's four classes for the price of one! The theme for our 12-week Spring semester is "Ethnic and Regional Specialties". This class is for brand new and returning beginner belly dancers and, in addition to our beginner curriculum, this semester will include an introduction to Haggala (Western Egypt/Libya), Nubian dance (southern Egypt/northern Sudan), Tunisian dance and Persian style Belly Dance. We will use traditional and modern pop songs, as well as both slow and fast tempos, to learn a basic beginner vocabulary of movement ... with lots of regional variety to spice things up. Students will learn individual moves, combinations and 8 weekly choreographies in order to gain an introduction to a very wide range of Middle Eastern dance styles.
FREE QUICK START VIDEO BONUSES:
New students who register by Sunday, March 19 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 new Quick Start videos on the first day of class.
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.
WEEKLY CLASS VIDEOS:
During the 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.
FAQs: See FAQ’s page regarding foul weather, make-up classes and other issues.
WHAT TO BRING/WEAR: See FAQ’s page. Gina will have hip scarves for sale during the first couple of weeks of class!
