Tuesdays, 8:15 - 9:15 PM
Beginning Belly Dance is an introduction to the basic isolations, shimmies, and foot patters of belly dance. This class is open to all levels, from the experienced to the first time beginner. Belly dance is a fun way to tone your body, develop your core safely, use muscles that we don't normally use in daily life, and make new friends, all while listening to great music! Sohara has been dancing in the community and performing for years, has studied dance in Turkey, and placed internationally and nationally in dance competitions. She is looking forward to meeting everyone in class!
In the spirit of inclusiveness, good karma, and community, these classes are 'on donation' with a suggested donation of $15-20 per class.
Sohara has been belly dancing performing and organizing shows for years. She has studied with many recognizable teachers with different backgrounds, but her biggest influence is American cabaret and Turkish style dance. She cross trains with ballet and has placed several times in national competitions as well as one international, in Turkey. She welcomes all dancers of all abilities.
The dance community is a wonderful community and very supportive for women from all walks of life. This dance is for all ages and sizes as it is by women and for women. Sohara is looking forward to seeing you in class and growing the dance community in Alaska!
