Theatrical belly dance blends the emotion, drama and storytelling of the theater with the beautifully passionate and expressive art of belly dance. By connecting emotion with movement through a combination of dance drills and improvisational theater exercises the dancer discovers, and learns to express, their creative voice.

Each class includes work with foundational belly dance movements and improvisational theater exercises.We will be using both live and recorded music in class. 

Note: There will be a performance opportunity in early April for those who wish to gain performance experience.  Details will be discussed the first day of class. 

The classes are open to beginner and intermediate belly dance students. Students will need to dress in comfortable clothing that allows a wide freedom of movement.

Each individual brings their own history and personal story to the dance. In recognition of this I seek to create a safe space for students to explore, and step beyond, the current boundaries of their dance.

All genders are welcome.
