Now you may never have thought of taking a belly dancing class before but my question to you is why not? Why not start on a journey to love yourself? Why not start on a journey in an art form that embraces the jiggle and wiggle that your body naturally posses? Why not do something fun, social, and that just might help increase your tone and flexibility?

If you’ve taken a look at my let’s learn  section then you might have noticed something different. I have put together a new program of classes and workshops for those who are looking to learn for fun and exercise. Also for those who already dance but who might be looking to cross train in another dance form as a one time event or workshop.

Bellydance for Fun and Fitness
Learn how to move and SWAY your hips in ways you never thought possible! Have fun while gaining core flexibility and strength. Award-winning Belly Dancer Amartia will teach you the basics of belly dance for a solid foundation not only for your body but in dance! All you need is a fun attitude and a willingness to learn. Please wear comfortable form-fitting clothing so that your movements can be seen. Hip scarves are optional. Bare feet, socks or dance shoes please.

Bellydance for Tone and Technique – Putting the AB Back in ABingdon
While furthering your knowledge of bellydance, Amartia will show you bellydance inspired abdominal exercises that will lessen your waistline. With an emphasis on nailing those hip drops, you’ll hit those abs hard while still having fun. With the Drills, come Thrills! Get ready to sweat! Challenge yourself with new combinations and variations. Each week will add another layer to your bellydance repertoire while still bringing home the basics and busting those abs. You’ll add grace, strength and fluidity to your body. Have an easy answer to the “Show me your bellydance moves questions!”
For the super brave there will also be the opportunity to learn how to put together a choreography to any song with a 4 tempo beat.

Bellydance Happy Hour
Drop the kids off at their dance class and have some fun! Your most dreaded time of the week can be turned into a favorite. No more waiting around for their class to finish when you can have your own! Get together with the ladies and shimmy and shake with a bellydance happy hour class. Amartia will teach you to move and wiggle your hips in a stress- free fun environment. The name says happy hour and it will be an hour of happy!

I hope that you like the new class offerings and maybe they interest you. If they do, then get yourself into a belly dancing class! Come and have fun, learn something new and maybe even make some new friends! Hope to see you in the studio soon!
