Datura Style Belly Dance

Kelly's Herb House401 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 and dance combinations specific to Datura style. 

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.

Weekly Datura Style Technique and Combinations

Wednesdays, 6:30 PM

Torso Series

April 12 - July 5th (9-weeks)

Slow and snakey does it! In this series, we’ll develop strength and flexibility through the spine by learning the Datura Chest and Rib Study. This is a “technique choreography” that, when practiced regularly, will help you develop strong technique for body waves and undulations. Then, we’ll apply that technique to dance Datura Style combinations based on the ATS® Arabic Step. Bring finger cymbals if you have them!

Datura Style Performance Skills

Wednesdays, 7:30 PM

This class is a complement to the Datura Style technique class. We’ll be using combos learned in the technique class to dance with others. You’ll learn how to dance in duets, trios, and quartets using Datura Style combinations you’ve learned and additional improvisational techniques I’ll teach you in this class. Topics on costuming, makeup, and crafting a performance will also be presented. As the name implies, performance opportunities are available, but they are optional! All levels of experience are welcome. You must also be registered for the entire technique and combinations class series. No drop-ins. Enrollment will be open to new participants at the beginning of each new class series, or by teacher permission. This is an ongoing class with a monthly fee.
