About the event
Join us for an unforgettable Belly Dance workshop as we indulge in the rhythms, melodies and movements from the Arab world. Embodying the feminine, this workshop will focus on hip work, arm movements and graceful turns teaching you techniques that can be incorporated across dance genres.
Led by our expert instructor, Sandra Sarrouf, you will learn the art of isolations, undulations, and shimmies to slink your way across the dance floor, while at the same time being informed of the rich history and cultural significance of ‘Belly Dance’. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced dancer seeking to refine your techniques, our workshop will ignite your passion for this ancient art, leaving you feeling confident, graceful, and connected to the rhythmic pulse of your body.
Sandra creates a supportive and fun environment for all levels. You are sure to get your body moving, expand your dance vocabulary, smile and have a cultural experience.
