Learn the ancient and beautiful art of Egyptian Bellydance from a native pro. The techniques and movements are broken down and taught progressively, bringing together your kinesthetic ability and artistic expression. Participants are guaranteed an invigorating, full-body workout while having FUN! This class is for all ages, genders, skill levels and body types. Wear comfortable exercise clothes; bring a hip wrap or a large scarf. Flat shoes, socks or bare feet are OK (no heels). Hala explains the meanings of songs and stresses the emotional and spiritual aspects of using the body as a musical instrument to complement the music. Since dance is an expressive art, Hala encourages students to develop their own unique style and dance personality. Her teaching method is based on Eastern traditions, blending in her martial arts training to foster a healthy posture, technique, and form. Hala stresses valuable health tips that are crucial to using this dance as a healthy physical exercise without any long-term strain on the body. We will explore the subtleties of the Egyptian Oriental and Folk Dances and more.
