CLASS DESCRIPTIONS:


BEGINNER BELLYDANCE:
Dive into the beautiful world of Egyptian 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, and breakdown and drill basic isolations and movements. All in a safe, inclusive, body-positive environment.
Wear comfortable, breathable clothes, and bring a water bottle. Bare feet are best.
Hip-scarves provided (borrow used or purchase new)
NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED.
NO drop-ins. Course MUST be taken from the beginning.
Any late starts will have to catch up with videos (additional fees may apply)
ONLINE (On Demand)
IN PERSON (MPCC  at 1 Kingsway & 8th) on Mondays 

 

INTERMEDIATE/MIXED LEVEL DRILLS:
This is a class for dancers with experience. Drills means that there is less breakdown of movements  and technique, and less feedback (but not none). Here we will breakdown and drill intermediate level movements with options for modifications for those at lower or higher levels. We will usually put the drills together in a combo each week. Ideal for those who have done beginner  or Intermediate a few times and want to just practice, or for students at higher levels who just want a fun way to polish and review. This is one of the best ways to really solidify your skills!
EXPERIENCE REQUIRED: Minimum at least one beginner course, preferably with Rahel.
Drop-in friendly with permission only.
IN PERSON (MPCC  at 1 Kingsway & 8th) on Mondays


INTERMEDIATE-ADVANCED LEVEL CHOREOGRAPHY:
Each series you will learn a full length choreography to a single song over the several months.
Learn context, lyrics/translation (where applicable), stylization, musicality, and transitions.
We will also breakdown the technique for more advanced level moves as they show up in the piece.
Modifications will be offered for less experienced dancers.
EXPERIENCE REQUIRED: For intermediate to advanced level dancers.
Suggested 2-3 years experience, preferably with Rahel
NO drop-ins.
ONLINE: Live on Zoom, Recordings included
Recordings available for the duration of the course plus an extra 2 weeks.

 


INTERMEDIATE (TECHNIQUE + DRILLS + COMBOS):
This a is a multi format class for dancers with prior experience. 
Technique means breaking down and explaining movements and isolations
Drills means practicing and repeating movements with music
Combos means putting moves together in a short sequence or routine.
Sometimes there may be a new combo every week, other times we may take a few weeks to work on a single combo.
EXPERIENCE REQUIRED: Minimum at least one Beginner course, preferably with Rahel.
ONLINE: Live on Zoom, Recordings included
Recordings available for the duration of the course plus an extra 2 weeks.
