WHAT SHOULD I WEAR TO CLASS?

  Belly Dance Class:

  • Dress for comfort

  • Bottoms: Yoga pants, capris, long flowy skirts, etc.

  • Hip Scarfs: Not mandatory, but helpful (& fun). You can use a triangle scarf, fringe scarf, coin scarf, etc. to help you feel & see the hip movements better.

  • Tops: Crop tops capri/tank tops, to full coverage tops.  You may or may not choose to show your stomach (whichever you are most comfortable with).  However, try to avoid baggy shirts due to it limiting the ability of you & the instructor seeing if you are doing the technique properly.

  • Shoes: No shoes necessary.  Most go barefoot; however some chose to wear dance shoes (or socks in the winter).

May I bring my children to class with me?

  • We kindly ask that you do not bring children to class.

  • Although we love children, class time at our studio is meant for ladies only.

  • In addition, children at the studio cause a distraction for the other students.

 

 

WHEN DO I MOVE UP TO THE NEXT LEVEL CLASS?

  • Many students choose to stay in level 1 class indefinitely for a great workout & fun choreography.  If you find the level 1 class still challenging, then it remains the correct level for you.

  • If you have been in level 1 nine months or more; have mastered the techniques in that class; can easily learn & remember the choreography; and need more of a challenge, then it may be time to move up.   If you feel you fit the description, ask your instructor for feedback on what you can work on to be a candidate for the next level.

  • Level 2  & Intermediate levels build on prior learned technique & add layering of movements & more technical choreography.  You instructor &/or the director keeps her eye on potential promotions & will let you know when you are being promoted.  If you feel you are getting close to promotion, ask your instructor for feedback on what you can improve to be a candidate for the next level.
