Experience a dance of empowerment, camaraderie, and joy! American Tribal Style® belly dance is a classic-yet- modern American fusion of dances of the middle east, Spain, India, and North Africa; its powerful poses and sassy steps become a vocabulary that you can learn to “speak” with other dancers. No choreography is needed; this dance is designed to be done improvisationally in a fun, supportive, collaborative environment. With slow, slinky moves and fast, energetic steps, this dance offers cardiovascular workout, artistic grace, refinement of posture, core strength, and personal empowerment. All ages, sizes, and levels of experience can benefit from this class. Dancers in this class will have a solid warm-up, some drills, and an opportunity to realize the dance through improvising with fellow dancers.
