In this series you will learn the techniques for fluid undulations, shimmies, playing finger cymbals, traveling steps and turns through the use of short, easy-to-remember combinations that can be used to practice at home or in performance settings!
All levels are welcome – this class is geared towards beginner dancers and students wanting exceptional technique!
Gentle yoga and dance conditioning are part of each class. Please bring a yoga mat and finger cymbals, both are also available to borrow in class*

Jan/Feb Bellydance Classes! Drum Solo Choreo Part I

Tribal Fusion Drum Solo Choreography Part I
Wednesdays 7:30-8:30pm
January 14th – February 25th
(No class February 4th)
All Levels Class! Beginners Welcome!

Ciara Dance Studio
21250 Califa Street
Woodland Hills, CA 91307

The focus of my next two class series (Jan/Feb and March/April) will be on learning the art of the drum solo! For me, this is often the highlight of a performance and I am very excited to share with you all my personal tricks for creating a dynamic and powerful choreography with simple, clear and dramatic movement.
In Part I we will be working on isolation patterns, the basics of a strong, relaxed hip shimmy, using the arms as frames for movement and tricks for remembering choreography! I will also be discussing basic drum rhythms and how they relate to bellydance movement.
Class Level: This is an all levels class and is a great introduction to bellydance technique and Arabic drum rhythms for those new to this material or who are looking to further develop their understanding of these topics. Previous dance experience helpful, but not required. Students will be given individualized instruction to help them grow and improve as a dancers.
Yoga will be included at the beginning and end of class for conditioning and relaxation.

Please bring a yoga mat and finger cymbals.
(both are available at the studio to borrow as well)

Performance Opportunity!
Students who attend the full 6-class series of both Part I and Part II will have the option to perform this choreography at a local bellydance showcase/hafla in April. Performing is of course optional, more details to come!
