Belly Dancing with Barushka

**In-Person Class**

Tuesdays, 6:30-7:30pm, 2/2 – 3/23

Belly dance classes will encompass Barushka’s specific style of belly dance which is a rich blend and savory base of traditional and tribal fusion belly dance,  Egyptian, Turkish, folkloric styles, a dash of classical Indian, a sprinkling of modern, a shot of flamenco with a splash of swing and vintage Jazz. Each class will encompass a short warm up, techniques and drills along with combos and we’ll build up to improvisational dancing occasionally.  We will cover using veils and zills (finger symbols which are optional).

The 8 week series contains drop-in friendly classes yet some may hinge on earlier classes in each series, but please feel free to try out a class whenever you like. But honestly the the most fun and value would be to sign up for the whole series. Classes will be beginner and intermediate level depending on the over all collective class ability. All levels are welcome.

Attire: please wear comfortable form fitted clothing such as yoga pants/leggings and a form fitting top. No baggy tops and no dresses please. Bring a fun hip-scarf! Also no excessively noisy coin belts. We will warm up in bare feet but please bring socks or suede dance shoes or foot thongs to dance in. If you have finger zills (finger symbols) please bring them after class # 2 or 3. I will go over where to buy them in class.

Creative Movement and the Spanish Language [Fridays, 1:15 – 2:15pm] –  This multidisciplinary program was developed to enable participants to learn, interpret, and understand the Spanish language through dance. The goal of these classes is for the students to be able to build a basic Spanish vocabulary for use in travel and daily life. This program fosters learning conversational skills in a new way. My aim is that each participant will develop a love for the Spanish culture and an eagerness to learn more about this beautiful language, which is the second-most spoken language in the United States, while learning latin dance styles such as salsa, merengue, bachata, and more.
