What we call Bellydance or Egyptian Dance or which ever cultural or modern variation you participate in or not, the essence of the movement quality is PULSATION. This pulsation is the expression of life.
I tell my students, what a gift we have in this form – this dance; that the kernel of expression and amplification of the Pulsatory life force energy supports the circle, waves, spirals and vibrations of their dance.
We go to the centre, which is the navel, then connect to the whole and naturally occurring spirals of our physiology / anatomy and move form this place, our dance and the dance becomes fluid and free.
The archetypal bellydance movements that are named, circles, figure 8’s, shimmies to name just a few, which are done independently or all at the same time can over time become effortless. This effortlessness gives grace, power, beautiful and a deep connection to the self and a personal healing dance.
Join me in the dance. Opened to all levels.
No previous experience is needed.
Long time students are welcome.
Professional dancer, bellydance teacher can expand their tool box.
