BELLY DANCE

Join the Belly Dance Class to reconnect and control your body!

Discover your natural ability to move freely and experience an embodied life. Embrace your strength, grace, and fluid body flexibility. Explore a new invigorating way to feel your innate feminine power.

Irina will teach you how to identify and strengthen different muscles and body parts which are essential for the belly dancing technique (e.g., hips, torso, ribcage, arms, etc.). Special dance combinations will link the movements together, creating fluidity and continuity of the dance.

After explaining the stylistic aspects of belly dance, students are encouraged to become versatile, well-balanced belly dance dancers and artists.

Private lessons also available, please call the studio to find out rates and availability.
