Middle Eastern Dance/Bellydance I
with Patti Luchetti
This class will also be available remotely via Zoom! Belly Dance, also called Oriental Dance, is native to the ancient Middle East. It was widely spread by migrations of Rom and other tribal peoples, from India, north to Turkey, and west to Spain – with Egypt becoming a renowned center of the art form in modern times. In our global age, Cairo now hosts respected dancers from Asia, Europe, and the USA as well. Belly Dance gives gentle, strengthening exercises to the whole body with an emphasis on the belly and thighs. This class will introduce torso movements and rhythms fundamental to this art form. Students will try dancing with scarves and Veils! Wear loose, comfortable clothing or dance wear and please bring a large scarf for the hips. This class meets Tuesday and Thursday and can be attended both live and via Zoom.
