EDUCATION NOTE: Beginner: Defined as a dancer who is within 0-2 years of studying Raqs Sharqi (Belly Dance). This dancer is immersing herself in the rich, intricate world of Oriental dance by learning fundamental movements while being introduced to posture, layering, hand/arm technique, shimmies and eventually traveling. She is collecting basic level accessories like hip scarves, practice pants, skirts, etc. and familiarizing herself with Arab music. She is receiving guided instruction with corrections and modifications. Our Sessions are not designed to be graduated immediately upon completion, as this is a rich and beautiful art form with many nuances and subtleties. Best prepare yourself to relax and let go of all preconceptions.
