Fundamentals of Datura Style Belly Dance
Wednesdays 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
NOTE: NO CLASS 9/14 OR 9/21
401 Headquarters Dr, Ste 102, Millersville, MD 21108
Based on Rachel Brice’s 8 Elements Approach to belly dance, Flissy’s Datura style classes are focused on developing healthy posture and solid technique for belly dance. Dancers will learn fundamental belly dance movements, including hip and torso isolations, as well as technique specific to Datura style and some basic American Tribal Style® belly dance steps.
Each class will begin with a simple yoga warm-up and finish with a gentle conditioning sequence to bring balance back to the spine and hips.
Drop-ins are always welcome!
Technique Series: June 15 – August 3rd
At the end of this series, dancers will have two "technique choreographies" to use in home practice to drill isolations with footwork. We'll learn the Hip and Rib studies, available to download from Radio Laria's Bandcamp page.
Arabic Step Series: August 17th – September 28th
Practice strength and flexibility through the spine by developing strong technique for body waves and undulations, and learn some super fun combinations to use in your dancing! Bring finger cymbals if you have them! *NO CLASS 9/14 or 9/21*
Datura Style Combos: September 28th – October 12th
Each week we'll focus on the fundamentals of Datura Style Technique and play with a combination that can be used in improvisation or choreography. Bring finger cymbals and drop in anytime!
