Belly Dance Technique and Combinations with Karen Muratti

Fri 25 Feb, 7-8 pm. I am excited about teaching belly dance again. This is a technique-oriented class that will be basic enough for all levels to get something out of it. Targeting balance, technique, sharpening hip movements, introducing new movements and combinations, working on posture. Including a short choreography on each class and adding improvisation as practice for fluidity and individual creativity purposes. Let's dance.
