What you'll learn in this belly dance class:

Modern Fusion Belly Dance (MFDB) combines or "fuses" movements of traditional belly dance (Egyptian, Turkish & Tunisian) with elements of western dance formats such as Modern Contemporary, Jazz, Hip Hop and others. 

Designed for the long-time beginner & intermediate dancer, this class focuses on developing a clean and fluid belly dance technique infused with elements of western dance. Class starts with a short warm up to improve flexibility and get muscles and joints moving followed by exercises and drills that strengthen and tone primary muscles used in our dance practice. The second part of class focuses on learning a short combination or "choreo chunk" that will be repeated and refined over a couple of weeks as we build layers and add footwork to develop a multidimensional dance practice. Emphasis is placed on proper posture, fluid and concise movements, and seamless transitions.

Eliza brings her dance background in ATS/ITS and Tribal Fusion and fuses her dance style with qualities of western dance formats. She strives to honor traditional belly dance while also integrating contemporary, jazz and a bit of show girl to create fresh movements and unique choreography.

Drop-in friendly class although regular attendance is encouraged as we build our combinations into a full dance to be performed at a future Arabesque Hafla.

Please Note:
Wear Exercise/Yoga pants, or leggings with a fitted T-shirt, a tank top or sports bra that can show lower back position; bare feet, socks or dance shoes. NO STREET SHOES. Also, any scarf or shawl to tie low around your hips is very useful to see your hip movements in the mirror.

Refund Policy
Tuition once paid is non-refundable.

If the class does not meet the minimum requirement of 5 students, you will have a class on week 1. However, if by the 1st day of week 2 there's still not the minimum number of students registered then you will get a phone call asking if you'd like to switch to another weekly offering. If that does not work with your schedule we will refund the session price minus a single-class cost (for week 1).
