Intro to Bellydance Fitness with Ami

  • DanceSport & Fitness 3203 E Willow St, Signal Hill, CA 90755 USA (map)

Join us for an introductory workshop with classically-trained bellydancer AMI to kick off the newest dance and fitness class at DanceSport & Fitness: BELLYDANCE FITNESS

WIth over ten years of experience as a professional performer and tutor, Ami will teach you how to have fun and get fit with the beautiful art of bellydance. This class is designed to drill the basic elements of bellydance in a fast-paced and heart-pumping cardio format. Dancers ranging from beginner to advance will benefit from the opportunity to drill moves and cross-train with calisthentics.

The workshop on May 6th will begin with a generic warm-up to get the blood flowing and joints loosened, followed by a basic overview of music theory, posture, and body mechanics as we transition through moves. Each drill will have the opportunity for adding layers to challenge your skill level and burn more calories! We will end with a gentle yoga-inspired cool down and stretch.

Notes on clothing: DO wear leggings, yoga pants, sports bras, tank tops, t-shirts, and fringe scarves. Ballet shoes, socks, and dance footies are optional. DO NOT wear cheap jingly coin scarves. The bells and bobbles break off, which can hurt bare feet.

Workshop is Saturday, May 6, beginning at 5pm at DanceSport & Fitness. $15
Classes are tentatively scheduled to be 45-minute classes at 12PM on Wednesdays, beginning May 10. $10 drop-in
