How does one become comfortable performing to live music?

The best way is to do it as much as possible! This weekly one hour class focuses on belly dance technique and form but with a twist, every class includes 1 - 3 musicians playing live music, including rhythm, melody and drum solo improvisation!

This on-going class will provide students with the opportunity to increase their dance technique and endurance as well as gaining a comfort level dancing to live music.  Intended for dancers with at least two sessions of belly dance under their hip scarves, each class includes a warm-up, drills, improvisation session and cool down.   

Students will also be provided information on the music and rhythms played in class.  

Bring comfortable clothes that allow for a range of movement, you may want to dress in layers as we will sweat, sweat, sweat!  A water bottle and yoga mat are also recommended.  

Cost**:  

Drop in: $20
Five class card: $80 (1 free class)
Ten class card: $150 (2 free classes)

**Why does this class cost more than Joie’s regular classes?  Without the musicians to play the music for us this class would not be possible.  The extra class fee is to help compensate them for their time and effort in providing us with this wonderful opportunity.
