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, January 15, 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.
WINTER SEMESTER 2022:
As a result of our students' success this fall, we will be expanding upon our fall special to include UNLIMITED BELLY DANCE CLASSES this winter! Come to 1, 2, 3, or 4 classes per week for the price of one!! That's up to 75% off! 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].) This is 4 for the price of 1! WOW!! The theme for our 8-week Winter semester is "1001 Shimmies" (or as close as we can get!). This class is for brand new and returning beginner belly dancers and our special topic is "Shimmies" - hip shimmies, shoulder shimmies, traveling shimmies, full body shimmies and more. We will use traditional and modern pop songs, with both slow and fast tempos, to learn a basic beginner vocabulary of movement ... with lots of different kinds of shimmies to spice things up. I will even teach you some that I don't teach to my most experienced dancers : ) We'll use moves, combinations and 4-5 weekly choreographies to get you up and .... shimmying like a pro.
FREE QUICK START VIDEO BONUSES:
New students who register by Sunday, January 15 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!
COST: Zoom students can register Moms and daughters who live in the same household for one price (two or three for the price of one, but only eligible with zoom class.)
