The ABC's & 123's of Bellydance with Nicci 


This fall we turn our focus to building your Raks Sharqi Dance Toolbox with technique, tricks and tips to take you from Studio to Stage!

During this session every class will be working through:

12 fun, feisty, fiery and fierce combinations to take you from drilling to dancing.    Each complete combination is designed to grow and develop as you do; building your  dance move library .   By the end of 12 weeks dancers will have 12 new combinations that you feel comfortable  to freestyle with  and/or build out into your own choreography.

Key Middle Eastern Rhythms!  Bellydance is more then just moving to the music, it means understanding that in which you are dancing too.   So let's start at the core, the rhythm and work our way out!   During this session we will continue our focus on the most popular rhythms; dancers will learn to identify them, play them and yes dance to them.  

Finger Cymbal Drills to Thrill!  Finger Cymbals and Bellydance go hand in hand, no pun intended.   And though overall Egyptian Raks Sharqi dancers do not Zill, it has fast become a skill that all dancers not only should embrace but are expected too.   During this session we will be exploring finger cymbals in two concepts or approaches;  pattern drilling (3-5-7) and rhythm drilling (Baladi, Saidi).   All finger cymbal drills will be applied over your weekly combination!    Don't have Finger Cymbals, don't worry we have loaners can order your own at Saroyan

Focusing on clearer isolation's, complex layers,  elevation changes, traveling and transitions, this class is designed to get you moving faster, harder and stronger in your bellydance execution and dance.   Each week dancers will utilize skill building exercises to put their bellydance skills to the test; from combination creations to group leads.   What will you create?
