Mondays 6:15-7:15pm
&
Thursdays 6:15-7:15pm
Teacher: Blair

Beginner |  Technique, Music, & History
Stylization: Classic

Within two 8-week sessions, students learn the complete essentials for bellydance! This course will teach you: what bellydance is and how to do it.  During "Music" sessions, each class includes instruction on Middle Eastern rhythms and instrumentation. During "History" sessions, each class includes a brief lecture on bellydance history.

To complete all the course content, students are encouraged to take one Stage 1 Music session and one Stage 1 History session, either concurrently or in succession (in any order). 

We recommend pairing this class with our "Bellydance Conditioning" class, for added support. Once you have completed Stage 1 Music & History, we recommend enrolling in Stage 2 Technique (alternatively, you may enroll in Stage 2 Combos, or both Stage 2 Technique & Stage 2 Combos).

Stage 1 is taught by  Blair Logan, a friendly and encouraging instructor to start you on your bellydance journey!

Bellydance Conditioning

Sundays 12:15 pm - 1:15 pm
Teacher: Blair

All Levels | Drills, Phrases, & Conditioning

Conditioning 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 Stage 1, Stage 2, Stage 3, and ITS. All skill levels are welcome!
