Discover a new dimension of movement and dance through the world’s most ancient art form! Belly dance demands full extension through the spine and deep engagement of power core muscles. Bring your curiosity and deep dive into Suzanna's signature nonstop Egyptian belly dance format. Build and drill basic combinations to express magical movement. Then sequence these combinations to music for a basic, fun, and invigorating choreography that you can share! We’ll perform for each other in groups and freestyle solos, according to student preference.
