BELLY DANCE CLASSES
Next Session begins SEPTEMBER 4th! Sign up here.
Our Bellydance and Aerial Classes are offered in 8 week sessions, where knowledge is built on technique learned each week. Some of our sessions allow drop ins, like our bellydance sessions. Other sessions, like our Intro to Silks, do not allow drop-ins, as safety and correct climbing technique are covered in the first class and built on progressively throughout the session. Please read carefully before signing up to ensure that the class or session you're signing up for allows drop-ins mid-session.
Yoga classes are offered continuously unless otherwise noted.
Note: We take a week break between sessions, which means that only Yoga classes will be offered during that time.
Currently scheduled breaks are:
Dec 24th - Jan 6th | March 4th - 10th | May 6th-12th
ATS® Bellydance Level 1
ATS® is an improvisational (choreography-free!) style of belly dance that incorporates elements of Egyptian, Indian, flamenco, and other traditional dances from around the globe. The ATS® system uses a standardized “vocabulary” of dance movements with built in cues and transitions that make it possible for dancers to improvise together in set formations. Students in Level 1 learn the foundational vocabulary and posture and practice following a leader in formation.
No bellydance experience necessary. Beginners welcome!
Tues, 7:15 - 8:15p
ATS® Bellydance Level 2
Pre-requisite required - ATS® Belly Dance Level 1 and instructor permission.
This intermediate ATS class builds on the foundations of Level 1. With a much larger vocabulary of movement, Level 2 spans two 8-week sessions and covers intermediate improvisational dance skills such as leading/following and dancing with a large group (chorus). At least two sessions of Level 1 and prior discussion with instructor required for admittance.
ATS® Bellydance Level 3
Pre-requisite required - ATS® Belly Dance Level 2 and instructor permission.
This level 3 class includes advanced ATS® steps and combinations, dialect steps, prop work, and floor work. With a strong emphasis on advanced technique in movement, formations, leading, and performance readiness, this class requires mastery of level one and two concepts as well as permission from the instructor.
