It is always a good time to try bellydancing!

In our global age, you will see famous stars in Cairo, natives of Japan and Sweden, dancing alongside ladies from Turkey, Lebanon and, of course, Egypt. Bellydancing is not only fun, it is also a gentle, strengthening exercise for the whole body, with emphasis on belly and thighs. This class will introduce signature torso movements and rhythms of this art form. Please bring a large scarf for the hips, and wear loose comfortable clothes or dance wear. Registration $45.
