Within two 8-week sessions, students learn the complete essentials for bellydance!  Each class features instruction on foundational bellydance movements (ex: figure 8s, undulations, shimmies, etc.). This course will teach you: what bellydance is and how to do it.  During "Cycle A" sessions, each class includes instruction on Middle Eastern instrumentation. During "Cycle B" sessions, each class includes a brief lecture on bellydance history. To complete all the course content, students are encouraged to take one Cycle A 8-week session and one Cycle B 8-week session, either concurrently or in succession (in any order).

We recommend pairing this class with our "Bellydance Combos" and/or "Bellydance Improv" classes, for added support.

This class is taught by  Blair Logan, a friendly and encouraging instructors to start you on your bellydance journey!

Combos class is a way to regiment your personal bellydance practice, whether you are a beginner dancer or a seasoned performer. We combine conditioning exercises to strengthen technique with drill flows of the Rose Movement Studio basics. There are always extra layers to grab onto for more of a challenge (and workout), and the playlist is a fun mix of both modern and traditional tunes.

This is a great companion class to Bellydance 1, 2, & 3. All skill levels are welcome!
