Group Improv Belly Dance – Level 1

Thursdays, 7pm – 8pm
The Crescent Collective, 911 Old Liverpool Road, Liverpool, NY, or Virtually (see below)
Learn the basics of Group Improvisational Belly Dance! In this class we’ll learn foundational dance movements inspired by the folkloric dances of the Middle East, North Africa, and Spain. Then, we’ll use those movements to dance together in a follow-the-leader improvisational style (no choreographies to memorize!). Beginner-friendly, all levels welcome!
