In-studio (in person) classes for bellydance to return in the Fall providing that it’s safe

Dive into the beautiful world of Arabic dance and music!  In this progressive, full-experience session, you will learn about the history and cultural context of Raqs Sharqi/Beledi (bellydance), learn how to stand and move safely and mindfully with correct posture and alignment, breakdown and drill basic isolations and movements of this beautiful Middle Eastern art form in a safe, learning-focused environment from dedicated full time dancer/teacher Rahel, AND get a great workout!! For class, wear comfortable, breathable clothes and bare feet.

Currently all classes are ONLINE! Via Zoom. To register, contact Rahel. A link with an invite to the Zoom meeting will be sent each week. All you need is a device with internet, a small space to dance in, and a free Zoom account. Learn from the comfort of your own home, from anywhere in the world, with live streaming classes online. Rahel is set up with high quality AV equipment, lighting, and mirrored space, so it feels just like you’re in the studio with her. Classes are interactive, and students receive personal feedback from Rahel and can ask questions during class.

New students to Rahel must watch two videos of prerequisite material, a one hour lecture on bellydance history and cultural context, and a 30 min breakdown of posture and alignment. This material can be purchased for $10 (a value of over $90) downloaded and watched on your own time. New students must begin at the start of the course.
