How it works

About this class

Designed for those new to Egyptian style belly dance, those returning after a break, and more experienced learners looking to brush up on their basics, find new challenges, revel in the roots, or try a new-to-them style or instructor, this class will provide a basic understanding of Egyptian raqs (dance) movement, posture, technique, and music fundamental to many styles. Each class will both introduce new information and review movements and concepts presented in the previous class. All of Monica’s classes at all levels have a musical approach to movement. Along with focused technique and movement practice and combinations, each class will include a dance style warm-up, a focus on posture, shimmy drills, conceptual, cultural and informational dance context as appropriate, and a dance-along or a dance circle.
