Beginner Belly Dance 

Tuesday's 6-7 pm

Learn the basics of Raqs Sharqi style Belly Dance, or traditional dances from Egypt, Turkey and Greece. Learn fundamental hip, torso, and arm movements in a low-impact and fun way! Combinations, choreography, and props such as veil and cymbals can be taught based on the group, and no experience is required. All ages and ability levels are welcome! Come shimmy and connect with this beautiful global dance form.

Intermediate Belly Dance

Monday's 6-7 pm

Move beyond the basics with adding layering techniques, prop work and group formations to foundational belly dance movements. Class is appropriate for those with at least 1 year regular belly dance class experience, and combinations will be tailored to the technical level and interests of participants. It is suggested you attend several monthly sessions of Beginner belly dance prior to enrolling in this class. Prop work such as cane, veil and finger cymbals will be taught, layering and specialty topics including folkloric and cultural/regional styles are approached in this class.

Belly Dance Performance Troupe Rehearsal

Tuesday's 7-8 pm

This class requires instructor approval to join. At least 2 years of regular weekly belly dance/dance experience required. Please attend several of Elianae's Intermediate sessions and discuss placement with her to decide if committing to the performance troupe is right for you.
