The Beginner class will teach students the foundations of American Tribal Style ® Belly Dance including Foundational Steps both fast and slow, posture, formations, the improvisational format, and playing the zills (finger cymbals). This class is for anyone who has not tried ATS® Belly Dance before or who wants to work on, or improve their foundational movements. No previous dance experience is necessary and no, you do not need to show your belly if you don’t want to. Students should wear something comfortable to move in and may bring a water bottle to class. Students will need… a set of zills for week 4 of class. More information on this will be available on the first night of class.
