Classical American Belly Dance for Beginners

Instructor: Alia Studios (Ellie Gibson)

Instructor's Contact Info: 609-413-4137

AliaStudios@yahoo.com

This American version of the dance is different from the styles presently
depicted  in the media. While all the moves originate from the core, its dance vocabulary includes every major muscle group, has a greater variety of steps, and is more aerobic.  The main objective in a beginner's class is learning to isolate movement to only one part of the body while practicing various foot patterns. It poses few limitations regarding age or ability, increases stamina, flexibility of the spine and joints and enhances posture. It engages the mind creating a
meditative experience.  Practicing the dance promotes poise, self-confidence, and a positive body image.
