Regular, Fun Workshops with Devi and Emily

Devi will be doing regular workshops  with Emily Cooper from Ghawazi Caravan and Hands Heart and Feet.  The idea is to have fun with easy Tribal Style Bellydance workshops largely for the African dancers (but all dancers welcome) using live drumming with the opportunity to perform with all that come to the workshops when the opportunity arises. Emily will also be teaching a workshop on the same day. To see if one is scheduled soon: Upcoming Events.

What should I wear?

Bellydance is an active and muscular dance and a great form of exercise. It is important to be dressed appropriately.

  • Wear something fitted and stretchy or loose and comfortable, similar to gym attire. We want YOU to be comfortable in class.
  • There are no set rules to revealing or hiding your belly for adult classes.
  •  Bare feet or jiffy type slippers.
  •  You can wear a hip scarf or coin belt for accenting hip movements if you so desire.
  •  Please NO jeans, school uniforms, non stretch pants, and tight skirts. They are too restrictive.

What should I bring?

  • Water bottle
  • Pen and notebook
  • Zills (finger cymbal) for Intermediate classes
  • A veil (big scarf) is optional for adult classes as we may use one for warm up from time to time.
  • A dance bag is ideal, this way items won’t be forgotten for class.

What level am I?

ATS® Fundamentals or Foundations are for all levels including those new to dance. Also, since ATS® and Tribal Fusion have a very specific posture and vocabulary these classes are perfect for dancers experienced in other forms of Bellydance as well as those in the more advanced Tribal classes.

We recommend coming to at least two sessions of Fundamentals or Foundations before moving on and then please attend both first class and Intermediate.

Ask your teacher if she thinks you will be suited to move onto more advanced levels. You will usually be welcome to throw yourself in the deep end if you like a challenge but lessons in Intermediate, Advanced and Fusion will expect you to have a good level of vocabulary, body awareness and proper Tribal posture.
