Middle Eastern Dance

with Patti Luchetti


Middle Eastern Dance (Belly dancing) is an art form widely practiced in the Middle East, but may have originated in the temples of ancient India. It spread with the migrations of peoples and cultures from India, north to Turkey and west to Spain. Egypt remains a renowned center of the art form and Cairo now also hosts respected dancers from Europe, Asia, and the USA. Belly Dancing gives gentle, strengthening exercise to the whole body with an emphasis on the hips. This class will introduce torso movements and rhythms fundamental to the style. Students will try dancing with scarves and veils! Wear loose, comfortable clothing or dance wear and please bring a large scarf for the hips.
