Smooth transitions from Right to Left side of body- This is a great fun as we have to dance, dance, dance it out by working from one side to the other and back!

Zills,  Zills patterns & Techniques are used and changed throughout the format. 337, 31313, 3515 etc.  Loads of fun

Veil work for a beautiful "show".  Colorful silk floats and swirls around as you dance.  This is a great workout with visual beauty.

Oriental Style (Classic Belly dance) classes designed to develop your own dance.  Steps and combos with a variety of options to choose from to make it your own. Including choreographies

Silk Dyeing in the summer (or at your house). We gather to dye silks and enjoy our creations as they blow in the breeze to dry. Wine optional ;)

Sword balancing is always a delight to watch.  The use of real Scimitars balanced on our heads, hips, shoulders etc. takes concentration and practice. It's so exciting!!
