Yoga for Belly Dancers

Thursdays, 6:30 - 7:30 PM

In this eight week series, you will experience yoga practices that strengthen the muscles that support belly dance posture and create movement, improve mobility around the hips, spine and shoulders, and compensate for the repetitive strain belly dance imposes on the low back and hips. This class is based in Viniyoga, which uses the breath as the medium for movement and is of particular benefit for belly dancers for improving articulation of the spine for movements like undulations. Emphasis on a breath-centric approach to doing yoga poses makes this class appropriate to all levels of experience in yoga and belly dance. Register & Pay

Belly Dance Brain Teasers

Thursdays, 7:30 - 8:30 PM

Each week there you will learn a combination based on a fundamental belly dance movement. We begin by practicing the fundamentals slowly and in detail, then add layers of foot work, arm patterns, and even finger cymbals. Through building complex belly dance movements, you will learn how to learn anything efficiently and with a positive attitude. Because the emphasis is on the experience of challenge, you have the freedom to work at your own pace whether you are brand new to dance or an experienced pro. Register & Pay

Wednesday Night Datura Style Belly Dance Technique & Combinations

Kelly's Herb House401 Headquarters Dr, Ste 102, Millersville, MD 21108

Wednesdays, 6:30 PM

Torso Series: April 12 - July 5th (no class 6/28)

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.

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!

Topics on costuming, makeup, and crafting a performance will also be presented. As the name implies, performance opportunities are available, but they are optional!
