    Do you want to learn belly dancing and tribal fusion belly dancing techniques having fun at the same time? Look no further.....

    Join me for this 5-weeks fusion belly dance immersive course. 5 weekly classes of one hour and a half each in Byron Bay. 

    During this immersive course we will go through some rhythms and musicality, belly dance and tribal fusion technique and we will learn and fun and dynamic drum solo choreography. Hip movements, sharp isolations and shimmy will characterize this choreography, connecting us with the fire elements and with the power of the darbuka, traditional Arabic drum using for belly dancing. 

    The lesson will include a warm-up, a techniques and movement break down session, choreography and a short cool down. 

    The course is open to every level. A previous knowledge of belly dancing is preferrable but not essential. 

    Drop in accepted at the price of $35 per class but since we are studying a choreography it is preferable to sign up for the whole course. 

    I am looking forward to dance with you :D
