Belly dance has its roots in folk dances of the Middle East and North Africa where it is traditionally danced when women gather together. This art form offers numerous benefits for body, mind, and spirit.
Belly dance is beautiful when performed by dancers of all ages and body types and is wonderful for promoting body-positivity and confidence. The dance offers an outlet for expression, healing, and community building, as well as enjoyable physical exercise, stress relief, and mood-boosting. It can also be utilized in a spiritual context to connect with feminine energy.
This introductory level workshop will include a breakdown of fundamental movements, which will then be combined into a short dance sequence. No previous experience is required. Comfortable workout attire is recommended. A scarf for the hips is also encouraged and a limited number will be available to borrow.
This workshop is limited to 15 women. Pre-registration is required. Click tickets to register. Investment $28.
