Summer Series with Wendy, Karen and Lori
Tuesdays – 7:15 – 8:45 pm

These classes are 90 minute, multi-level classes, designed to enhance your knowledge and skill of belly dance. This series has been designed for both 6 week enrollment ($110.00 plus hst) or drop-in ($20 plus hst). Instruction from Wendy Osmond, Lori Savory and Karen Humby will ensure a variety of styles and maximum knowledge transfer. Please note that dancers should have at least belly dance beginners. Dancers should wear comfortable clothing, and bring a water bottle.

NOTE CLASS CANCELLATION.   THURSDAY, July 17: Oooey Gooey Undulations (Wendy): A class full of ooey-gooey goodness. Learn some great movements that are at their best when the pace is slow and learn tips for taking movements to their ultimate ends. Finish it up with some combinations that make the most of time and space.  THIS CLASS IS NOT GOING AHEAD.

NOTE CLASS CANCELLATION.  July 22nd: Veils: (Karen) Veils can add the special touch to a sensual piece, or it can founder the most technically sound choreography if used incorrectly. This class designed to introduce students to dancing with the ever-popular Veil in such as way as to compliment their skill sets.  THIS CLASS IS NOT GOING AHEAD.

July 29: Stage Presence (Lori) What makes the difference between a performer who grabs the audience’s attention and one who doesn’t? We will explore the elusive, but learnable art of stage presence with discussion and practical exercises to bring out your inner star.

August 12th: Footwork: (Wendy) Footwork or traveling patterns are many and varied, and add interest to stage performance and increase the complexity of your dance. We will study as many as Wendy can fit in an hour and a half! Some are guaranteed to be new to you. (All levels)

August 19: “Balancing Props”: (Lori) The art of dancing with things on your head is a well-established tradition within belly dance. Bring your swords, baskets, trays, and whatever else you want to try, and we’ll learn the tricks and techniques of balancing, as well as movements that work with balancing.

August 26th: Tribal (Wendy) This class is offered as an introduction to tribal fusion and American Tribal Style bellydance. We will concentrate on the differences between gypsy style and tribal fusion, as taught by Rachel Brice, and clear up some of the confusion in dance terms.
