Belly Dance Fitness™ Classes are 1 1/2 hours long and include pilates style strengthening and yoga stretching, as well as a more demanding warmup.  At the current time I am not offering Belly Dance Fitness™ but am inviting dancers to contact me if interested in forming a class in this style of training.  Belly Dance Fitness™ Class is geared for new to the art dancers, beginning level dancers, and as a review for intermediate dancers.  Advanced dancers are welcome and will find it a great tune up of their basic technique and skill. Classes start with a pre warm-up.  Followed by a more vigorous ten minute warm up. Curriculum includes body isolations, basic moving/dance steps, choreography, hip work and shimmees, arms and hand work, zyls, veils, rhythm!  Lots of Dance Drills. Having a class for over an hour allows ample time for zyls, veils, hipwork, isolations, and combinations for choreography every week.  Classes conclude with upper body strengthening, pilates styled conditioning, and stretching to increase flexibility.

If you think you would be interested in this more intense format let me know. Once we have enough interest we can form a new class.
