Middle Eastern Belly Dance: Free Trial

Free

with Josephina Gasca

Calendar Sep 12, 2022 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week

Authentic Belly Dance, or raks sharqi, is an ancient form of dance. Raks sharqi means “dance of the east” in Arabic. Belly dance celebrates every body type and every stage of life. The dance is proud and powerful and soft and sinewy with elegant and isolating movements emanating from the core. It’s the Pilates of dance. And so much fun! This is a great refresher class for experienced dancers and suitable for dancers new to belly dance. Please wear comfortable clothing, similar to what you might wear to a yoga class that will allow for free movement and the ability to see your movement. Hip scarves make it even more fun. You can dance barefoot or in a pair of comfortable dance shoes in the studio. Zills (finger cymbals) will be used in class. Check in with the instructor before you purchase any. As an added bonus, you will also have access to a video library with instruction, drills, and ongoing choreography during the length of the session.

Singing w/ Randy

$75

with Randy Lindsey

Calendar Sep 12, 2022 at 6:30 pm, runs for 8 weeks

This Fall we will have fun singing songs in parts (SATB) while discussing vocal production to help you become a stronger, more confident singer. Our singing class is not only for enjoying singing together; we will also address concepts such as accuracy of pitch, projection, pronunciation, and personal style. We usually have more ladies than men, so if you're a bit of a shy guy and on the fence of signing up, please re-think your reservations and know that others are shy, too. Come discover the capabilities of your own voice! New students - $15 materials fee paid to instructor. ***NO CLASS 10/10
