About this event

This class dives deep into the foundations and mechanics behind bellydance or MENHAT based movement vocabularies.

Building Blocks uses a modern approach to teaching complex movements, as we start with the fundamentals or building blocks of the most common isolations that set this dance form apart.

You will learn:

  • How to isolate and move different muscle groups
  • A small choreography each class - that will build into an entire dance in one 8-week session
  • How to count (and move) to different types of music used in modern fusion bellydance
  • Basic formations and dynamics behind group improvisational format (BATS)
  • Confidence, poise, flexibility and strength.
  • A great workout each week
  • Access to an online community of dancers from around the world through Boho Global
