Look for "Modern Egyptian Dance"

Oriental Dance, or Raqs Sharki, is one of the oldest and most powerful forms of dance from a rich cultural background. The natural movements of belly dance can be enjoyed by all people, regardless of age or size. Previous dance experience is NOT necessary. Come dance and feel great about your body while you enjoy learning the culture and customs associated with this form of movement! This class will challenge the body and the mind, focusing on technique which will be implemented in choreographed combinations to lively Middle Eastern music.  Suggested clothing: You do not need to show your belly; however, form fitting clothing is always a plus for a dance class in order to observe technique. Dance shoes or bare feet will be best - no street sneakers, please.
