Very excited about this! Come join us -- you do not need to buy a membership at Empower Training studio to join this intro to bellydance basics class.
Introducing BELLY DANCE BASICS with Sa'ada!
This 4 week workshop will be held Tuesdays from 6:30-8:00pm April 3rd - 24th. This is not a fitness class, but an e...ducational experience into the world of Middle Eastern Style dance.
"The class format will be split between learning movements and learning information, so there will be breaks throughout. Each class will revisit the movements from the previous sessions. This isnt an exercise class but rather a very basic introduction to this form of movement"
Most abilities welcome but there is VERY LIMITED SPOTS. Only 10 spots will be offered for this workshop. First come first serve. They will go fast so register here: https://app.acuityscheduling.com/catalog.php?owner=11179041

An interpretation of what a dance might have been like in 16th/17th Century urban Istanbul in the Ottoman Empire. Based on illuminations and miniatures from the time period, the scholarly works of Metin And, and historical commentary, with influences from Turkish folkloric dances. (Kindly note: the underbust costume is not accurate to that time period, but it was worn because it was appropriate for the overall event.)
"Miserlou" played by the band WC Sadaqah which includes (from L to R): Brendan (bass, def, doumbek), Luther (guitar), Raccoon (violin), Djani (cura saz, riq, doumbek), Shareef (baglama saz, vocals, def, doumbek), Rashid (doumbek, vocals, def), Beth (kanun, vocals), Cooper (def), Groa (vocals, belltree).
