NATURAL MOTION DANCE CLASSES

LEVEL I: THE BASICS

WEDNESDAYS in NEW BRITAIN, PA:  7:30pm-8:30pm  (8 weeks) Begins 9/16/2015

Students at this level learn basic moves and how the moves affect health and well-being. Focus is given to proper posture and precision of moves.

$15 per class / $96 for the 8 week session

Pre-registration is required.  To pre-register contact Meredith at Spotlight Dance Centre: 215-340-2221.

LEVEL II: BEYOND THE  BASICS (Prerequisite:  Ability to execute all Level I moves comfortably and clearly)

CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE: 

Students at this level further refine the basic moves and begin to focus on the flow of transitions, and group dynamics as it directly applies to troupe dancing.  We add more moves to the vocabulary, begin using zills, and learn more about the flow of energy in the group dynamic as well as the use of sacred gestures.   Level II and III dancers are invited to dance in Eos, the student troupe of Vesperus, in order to experience public performance and hone group dynamics skills.

$15 per class / $180 for the 13 week session (pay for the 13 weeks up front and get one class free!)

LEVEL III: INTERMEDIATE TROUPE TRAINING (Prerequisite:  Instructor invitation)

CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE: 

Students at this level learn more advanced moves, the layering of sacred gestures, and refine the flow of move transitions.  Props are introduced.  Dancing is very rigorous at this level.  All dancers are expected to lead in order to share in the dance experience.  Level II and III dancers are invited to dance in Eos, the student troupe of Vesperus, in order to experience public performance and hone group dynamics skills.

$15 per class / $180 for the 13 week session (pay for the 13 weeks up front and get one class free!)

LEVEL IV: ADVANCED TROUPE TRAINING (Prerequisite:  Instructor invitation)

Students at this level apprentice with Vesperus in order to experience sacred dance at its highest level and primarily in sacred settings.

Belly Dance Class General Info

What do I wear?

Wear comfortable clothing. Most women wear leggings/yoga pants and a comfortable, fitted top, such as a sports bra, tank top, or choli.  You will most likely collect costume pieces as you go along.  Some sort of hip scarf or belt makes it easier to see hip isolations, and some will be available in class to borrow.  We dance barefoot in class.  Please do not wear jeans, tight pants that do not stretch, or baggy shirts.  These clothing items impede movement and make it difficult for the instructor to see your movements.

Are there any age restrictions?

I take students of all ages.  Students under 18 will need written consent from a parent or guardian.
