Workshop Topics

 

Mini-Class Workshop

This is a great introduction to basics as well as an overview of some of the different types of movements that comprise the art of belly dance.  A short warm-up and cool-down are included and in between we examine dance posture, arm positions and movements, basic hip and shoulder shimmy, chest and hip circles as well as some simple foot patterns.  Along the way we’ll talk about some of where this dance form comes from.  If time allows ‘how to find your glutes and what to do with them’ as well as some other topics may be added.

 

Belly Dance with Limited Mobility – yes you can!

This is an introductory class designed to show how even with many mobility issues you can enjoy learning many belly dance movements.  Knee issues?  Lower back problems?  Think you’re too large or too old to dance?  Not an obstacle for this class!  Many of the movements can even be taught sitting down in a chair.  We’ll find your glutes and your obliques and look at how to make them do the work.  This workshop can be tailored to a group with similar limitations or taught to a more general group with adaptations offered to individuals along the way.

 

Stretch and Shake Up your Shimmy

Start with a gentle stretching routine designed to help with various shimmies and then we’ll examine different ways to generate a shimmy movement and how those shimmies look different.  Be prepared to get your feet, legs, knees, hips, glutes, obliques, traps, lats and core involved – there’s more to this than appears at first glance.  It is recommended that participants have some very basic experience as a minimum and more advanced dancers will find the material in this workshop helpful in taking their dance ‘to the next level’.
