DESCRIPTION: Enjoy the magic, mystery and good fun of Belly Dance! This class is for students of all ages (8+), shapes, sizes and fitness levels. It is perfect for (a) absolute beginners, (b) those who have already taken Beginner Basics but want a review, or (c) those who would like to learn in a more recreational atmosphere. We’ll work on basic Middle Eastern dance vocabulary, combinations, and a fun choreography or two. It is appropriate to repeat this offering several times before moving to the next level.We always use different slow movement combinations, different choreographies and different music. The class combines dance technique and choreography for the best of all worlds.
INSTRUCTOR: Michelle Girouard, 10 year lead member of the Raqs Salaam Dance Theater and teaching beginner and intermediate classes for three years in Hanover, Grantham, Bethel, Randolph and South Royalton.
