In this beginner class you will learn modern fusion belly dance style, focusing on technique and learning combinations as a group. Discover that belly dance uses the whole body- with chest movements, arm positioning and steps. Once you feel you have a good understanding of the basic elements there is the option to progress to the open fusion belly dance class for more complex moves and routines.
Fusion belly dance (formerly 'Tribal' fusion) is a modern take on the traditional style of belly dance with influences from Egyptian oriental and American tribal style. A theatrical dance, it incorporates elements of hip-hop, contemporary dance, folk dance styles (such as Indian Kathak) and Gothic subculture amongst other things. The style is characterised by smooth flowing movements contrasted with sharp staccato isolations and shimmies.
Belly dance tones the abdomen and lower back and can help you to have confidence in your body. Contrary to popular belief, belly dance can be enjoyed by people of all different body types.
