Wednesday, 8pm, 75min, Open levels

Description: This class aims at showing students the whole spectrum of Bellydance, from the foundations of Oriental dance (Beledi, Sharqi, Folkloric) to the new hybrids & mutations which are emerging all over the world, influenced by the fusion of multiple dance genres & cultures, which is also reflected in the diaspora of global beats and world fusion music. Some examples of fusion are Bellysamba, Flamencoriental, Tribal Fusion bellydance, Modern and Contemporary Oriental & Bellywood just to name a few. Come with an open-mind and ready to train your body in ways you didn’t expect to, and discover a world of hypnotic movements & sensuality, strong body isolations & passion, complex calligraphic footwork, earthy floorwork, exhilarating shimmies and much much more! For both male and female dancers, Bellyfusion is a fantastic outlet for self-expression through dance while learning about various cultures.

Samba & other Brazilian dances

Thursday, 8pm, 75min, Open levels

Description: Samba is a lively, rhythmical dance from Brazil, of African origin. While they are many and varied styles of Samba (samba-rock, samba de gafiera etc.), the style taught in this class is the Solo style called "samba no pé" typical of what you will see at the famous Brazilian carnivals of Rio & Bahia (samba-reggae). This is a high energy, fun class, suitable for beginners through to more experienced dancers. An extra bonus - it is a great workout for the abs, hips and thighs. This is not just a class for the ladies though - guys are welcome to come and shake up a storm in the studio also!
