Dance 2 -- The North Gym
The class begins with describing how the Egyptians hear and keep the beat of the music and how/why it is completely different from the way the West hears and keeps the beat of the music. Participants are then invited to move in the basic and elementary way that this beat is heard and kept by Egyptians. Classic Egyptian Style belly dance movement is then applied to this basic and fundamental dance core movement. Participants will learn the most basic to advanced of belly dance movements.
