BELLY DANCE LEVEL II
MONDAYS: 6:45-8:00 P.M. with Amity Alize
TUESDAYS: 5:30-6:45 P.M. with Amity Alize
This class is geared to those who have taken Beginner I or have obtained instructor approval to transfer from other studios and instructors. In this class we continue to work on drilling movements while adding combinations, isolations, layering, and various dance steps in order to build you dance vocabulary. Please bring your zills (finger cymbals) and veil (loaners available at every class). Most people enjoy this level from one year to three.
LEVEL III INTERMEDIATE CLASSES
This class is for the serious student who has achieved a level II status. We'll work on individual growth while focusing not just on technique and drills, but different styles, props, history, and performance methods. All dancers are required to work on solos (whether you perform them out of class is completely up to you). You must be willing to take constructive criticism from your instructor work as a team player with your peers. Please note, in order to join this class, you must get instructor permission and take level II for at least two semesters. Minimum of 6 students in order to hold class
SPECIAL TOPIC CLASSES
TUESDAYS: 7:00-8:15 P.M. with Amity Alize
Open to all dancers with at least some beginner class experience and above. Limited to 12 dancers per class.
Session 5: August 18th-Sept 29th: Musicality & Improvisation Part II
Back by popular request and as a follow up to last year's Musicality and Improvisation Part I, we'll continue our breakdown of musicality. You'll learn how to apply these methods to your dance and be comfortable improvising to the most common rythmns and maqams dancers hear.
Session 6: October 13th-December 1st (no classes Thanksgiving week): Pops, Locks, & Accents
Giving power to your performances, these muscular and grounded movements are a great addition to your hipbelt. We'll practice creating pops, locks, and accents from various areas and strentgh techniques.
PRIVATE LESSONS & SKILL ASSESSMENTS
Gain priceless individual feedback and instruction. Experienced dancers know that you can learn more in an hour of one-on-one with an instructor than you can learn in many group classes. For dancers at any level, take advantage of this time for personal feedback & constructive critique, specific style study, performance dynamics, dance history, and technique cleanup, bringing your dance to the next level.
For your benefit, we highly suggest that you complete a private lesson/personal assessment before moving to a new class level. This will help you target your goals, strengths, and weaknesses.
