Lunchtime funtime Bellydance with a focus on fitness!

Make no mistake, this IS a dance class, but we will keep moving the whole class and practice moves to build strength and stamina so that we become stronger dancers.

Among the many benefits of this class, you will experience the joy of dancing to Arabic music, a healthy cardio workout, strengthening of muscles required for strong dancing, guided improvisation, and drills to help with faster transitions between dance moves.

Classes will include a warm-up sequence to prepare the body, improvisation and dance drills to build the momentum or interval phases switching between fast-paced moves for cardio and graceful slow moves for recovery, and then close out with some free-dance improvisation then a cool down and satisfying stretch session.

All levels welcome (there will be something for everyone). If you have to pop out early to make it to your afternoon MS Teams meeting, we will understand!
