Egyptian and pan-Arab Dance Technique :: Fundamentals and Basics

Prerequisite: No experience needed through up to three years. Each series will cover posture, fundamental techniques, combinations, as well as rhythm, instrument, and song structure recognition.

Designed for those new to Egyptian and Arab style belly dance, those returning after a break, and more experienced learners looking to brush up on their basics, find new challenges, revel in the roots, add folkloric elements to their style or try a new-to-them style or instructor, this class will provide a basic understanding of Egyptian raqs (dance) movement, posture, technique, and music fundamental to many styles.

Each class will both introduce new information and review movements and concepts presented in the previous class. All of Monica’s classes at all levels have a musical approach to movement. Along with focused technique and movement practice and combinations, each class will include a dance style warm-up, a focus on posture, shimmy drills, conceptual, cultural and informational dance context as appropriate, and a dance-along or a dance circle.

Note: Monica also teaches an intermediate class Mondays from7 to 8PM for more experienced learners.

Monica has taught at Lines since 2003.
