Intro to Belly Dancing
September 12, 2009
Learn Raks Sharki or Belly Dance, the Oriental dance women have performed for ages. Practice ancient movements, including balance, undulations, and vibrations, to ancient rhythms. This is a dance of isolation; different parts of the body are moved independently, layered to make a unity. Every part of your body will participate, from your toes to your fingertips, your head and your heart, as you develop body awareness and coordination. Regardless of your age or body type, you can learn something from this dance. Wear comfortable clothes, such as leotards or gym apparel, and bring a scarf to tie around your hips. Limited to 16.
