SPRING 2021:

Bellydance Fitness:

Two left feet? Love Zoomba but need something low impact? No problem! In this class Freya will lead you through dance & yoga based stretches to increase flexibility, balance, and strength.  Then she will get your heart rate up through low impact drills using fusion belly dance moves that anyone can do regardless of your fitness level or dance experience. These combinations are a fun cardio workout that will strengthen muscles, increase joint stability, and boost your cardio fitness.  And without realizing it, you’ll learn some sassy dance moves too! 

 

Class Attire: Please come in yoga pants, leggings or other attire that allows full range of motion. Please no baggy shirts, baggy pants or long skirts as it’s important for you and the instructor to see your body positions. Also, a scarf or shawl to tie around your hips is helpful to see your hip movements in the mirror. 

 

Beginning Bellydance:

Belly dancing is incredibly empowering.  Women and Men of every size & ability level will have fun while building confidence, strength & grace.   In this class you will learn the Egyptian roots of Bellydance and then experiment with modern tribal & fusion styles. Short combinations & choreography will be incorporated into technique and drills making it a great workout for your muscles and your mind. No previous dance experience required and great for all fitness levels. (This class can be adapted to accommodate many physical limitations, even for people in wheelchairs.  Please contact Freya to discuss your specific situation.)

Intermediate Bellydance:

Belly dancing is incredibly empowering.  You will have fun while building confidence, strength & grace.   In this intermediate class we will build upon the foundational moves learned in the Intro class.  Short combinations & choreography will be incorporated into technique and drills making it a great workout for your muscles and your mind.  Choreography will become more complex as we begin to layer multiple moves into the dance or incorporate props such as veils, fan veils, canes, or finger cymbals. Props will be available to borrow in class.  For those who want their own, I will have a limited number of props & hip scarves available for purchase. Previous bellydance experience required. (Either taking the Intro class for at least one session, or  previous training in another bellydance class are acceptable).

Private Lessons & Consulting 

Sometimes you want one-on-one lessons to develop a specific technique, or perhaps you can't make any of the classes. Whatever the reason, I am available for one-on-one consulting or private small group lessons.  Please contact me to discuss your needs and we'll work out the perfect solution and time for you.  CALL or EMAIL

About your Instructor:

Freya took her first bellydance class in 2000 and immediately fell in love with this beautiful art form. Over the years she’s had the privilege of studying with some of the world's top dancers including Rachel Brice, Ariella, Sonya Blacker, Zoe Jakes, Jasmin Jahal, Mae the Bellydancer, Christina King and many more. Freya became a semi-professional dancer in 2010 performing with troupes Roe-He, Vagabond and Black Silk Road. As a soloist Freya performed in shows throughout the region including Beast Women, Tribal Revolution, Burning Man Decomp, Angels & Absynth, The Glint, and the Chicago Hafal for Humanity which raised money for Syrian refugees. Freya is most well known for her ethereal & powerful veil routines using both Egyptian & Chinese style veils that she custom makes herself.
