This bellydance class gets us dancing from the ground up! Covering basic steps, skills, and combinations, this class is great for a beginning dancer, a person with a dance background in other formats, and an advanced dancer wanting to run skills and drills.
Mixed Level belly dance is a fun class that adapts to a variety of skill levels with every class. We practice isolations, fluidity, traveling steps, and dance combinations. With options for every body to choose from, this is a great class for anyone from the beginner to advanced professional.
Intermediate/Advanced Bellydance is play time! This is where we run challenging isolation combinations, layer and combine steps and skills, and create more complex routines. Previous Bellydance class experience will help students enjoy and benefit from this class.
At Thrive we offer a large variety of specialty series dedicated to specific aspects of Bellydance. From Musicality and Improvisation to Finger Cymbals and Choreography, and so much more, look out for our rotating series where we get to dive deep to strengthen our knowledge and skills!
