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 June 20, 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 June 20 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 MINI-CHOREOGRAPHIES:
The focus for the summer semester is on the "Belly Dance Show." The Belly Dance soloist (for example, in a restaurant) normally presents a multi-part show. Each part has a distinct style and flavor. These "parts" might include an up-tempo entrance piece, a slower veil piece, a faster tempo dance, a slow improvisational piece, something folkloric, a drum solo and an exit. Each class will feature one of these show "parts". Please don't worry -- you will not have to perform any of this as part of class! But the show structure gives a great framework for the semester and you will learn an entire show. If you want to show it off, you can!!! Please note that during the week of July 27 classes will not be live but you will receive three full class videos for that week! That's an extra two classes for free!!!
FAQs: See FAQ’s page regarding foul weather, make-up classes and other issues.
