Fundamentals of Datura Style Belly Dance
Wednesdays 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
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 10th – September 7th
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!
Shimmy Intensive: September 21 – October 12th
Get ready to have fun and sweat! We’ll work on four different shimmies to get you moving across the dance floor and improve your ability to interpret music with different timing. Bring finger cymbals and some water.
