Wednesdays 6:30-8:00pm – GEOMETRY IN MOTION
Become a master of layering, and refine your belly dance technique!
Sally draws from her extensive training in the Suhaila Salimpour format to set you free as a dancer! Work through challenging muscular isolations and open up endless possibilities within your own belly dance style. Sally will help you use Suhaila’s signature format to challenge your body and mind in this anatomically-enlightening course. Serious belly dance mechanics!
Wednesdays 8:00-9:00pm – GOOD OL’ FASHIONED BELLY DANCE
Dust off your finger cymbals and get ready for a belly dance party!
Sally takes you through the basics of the Jamila Salimpour format based on her extensive training at the Salimpour School. Explore the nomenclature, step families, variations, sentiment, and stylization of Jamila’s signature style of belly dance. Experience how these steps can flow from one to the next, opening the door for an improvisational dance experience (within the format’s context) that is most definitely “Good ol’ Fashioned Belly Dance”.
Dancers enrolled in this class are required to take “Geometry In Motion”.
Wednesdays 9:00-9:30pm – THE SALIMPOURIUM PROJECT
Dancers already enrolled in Wednesday night’s Salimpour format focused classes are eligible to take part in the Salimpourium Project – a performance troupe dedicated to Salimpour School choreographies.
Students in this class will learn and study specific Salimpour choreographies from the Salimpour Online Classes. This choreography will be decided upon at the beginning of each session, and the student is responsible for studying and learning it on their own time. Class time with Sally will be spent “cleaning up” and polishing the choreography, and adjusting staging and formations for any upcoming performance opportunities for the troupe.
