About Open Middle Eastern / Bellydance
Experience the beauty of “Raks Sharki” (Dance of the East). This class is an introduction to the dances of the Middle East and North Africa. The class will begin with emphasis on body alignment, stretches and isolations which will evolve into the fluid and rhythmic movements of this ancient dance form. Choreographic patterns, movement vocabulary, musical interpretation, finger-cymbal playing and veil work will be incorporated into the class. “Raks Sharki” or” Danse Orientale”, the most popular form of Middle Eastern Dance, has a long and rich heritage, derived from folk, character, and spiritual dances as varied as their countries of origin. Samara’s approach is to create a joyful learning experience while stressing individual progress and a deep respect for the traditions of the dance.
