Group Improvisation, Fusion Bellydance

With Liz

Hosted through the Cicero Rec. Desk

 

Join Liz of Emerald Starling Belly Dance to learn the basics of Group Improvisation style belly dance - a fun, follow-along style dance that pulls inspiration from Middle Eastern, North African, Indian, and Flamenco styles. We'll learn slow and fast movements while enjoying the beautiful view of the lake!

$50 for Cicero, NY Residents, $55 for non-residents for the 4-week session; registration deadline is May 29

Just like learning vocabulary for a new language, this level breaks down movement to build safe technique that will keep you dancing into (or out of) old age. We also get you started on developing your sense of rhythm, building confidence for improvisation, and some of the teachers even gently introduce the iconic finger cymbals!

Mixed Level Drills and Technique

Rotating Instructors

This 60 minute class is like a bellydance study hall! Teachers change every week, while following the same class format, allowing you to see improvement in key skills while getting a variety of perspectives and styles.  We work on different drills for technique, finger cymbals, transitions, and improvisation. Students qualified for levels 2 and up are welcome. 

Mixed level drills classes are like oriental dance study hall! Your teachers will include exercises and games they don't have time for in regular level classes, and you can hone your skills at your own pace.

Basic Veil Technique

With Lisa Lumina

In this class, Lisa will breakdown basic veil techniques and cover some fun vintage veil wraps. We'll practice variations on techniques and learn how to use variations on combos to make them your own, along with getting lots of practice making those fabrics behave! Students interested in the following veil choreography series are strongly encouraged to take this class first.

 

Limited to 3 in-person students, more space available over zoom. Class will be held at Lisa's home studio. 

Once you have some vocabulary under your hip-scarf, it's time to learn to say something with it!  Oryantale dance is the music made visible, these classes practice and refine what you've learned so far, while building your recognition of rhythms, song structure, and instruments, along with your confidence and staging skills.

Vintage Vibes Veil Choreography

With Lisa Lumina

Apply the veil techniques from the last series to a choreography to Feirouz's Ya Mayla. Not only will students learn a choreography, with the option to perform in the winter student recital (assuming covid variants don't become a problem), but we'll also cover the nuts and bolts of creating a choreography, and how to adjust a basic outline to different group sizes and stage types.
