After a three month trans-Atlantic journey where I had the opportunity to experience music and dance from around the Mediterranean, Africa, South America and the Caribbean, I am very excited to return to Portland and resume teaching belly dance!
Date: February 4 - April 7 (10 classes)
7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Bright Star World Dance
108 High Street, 3rd Floor
Cost: $100 Full session /$15 drop in.
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.
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.
NOTE: The classes are open to beginner and intermediate belly dance students who have attended at least one session of belly dance classes. Students will need to dress in comfortable clothing that allows a wide freedom of movement.
