TRIBAL BELLY DANCE: BEGINNERS
A dynamic and artistic movement that fuses dance styles from the Middle East, North Africa, India, and Spain. This class is designed for those interested in learning from square one and eventually moving up to join the advanced students. It will start from the very beginning of American Tribal Style (ATS)/Improvisational Tribal Style (ITS) concepts and Zils. Zils are not mandatory but will help boost dance experience. They can be purchased at the studio.
The course will be structured so students are able to move up every 8 weeks to the intermediate or advanced class depending on consistency, adaptation and dedication of each individual. This allows people to move up at their own pace.
**There must be at least five consistent students for the instructor to hold this class.**
