Datura Style Technique & Combinations: Body Waves & Back Bends

March 28 – May 9th (7-week session)

Wednesdays, 6:30 – 7:30 PM

In this seven-week session, we will work on the Datura Style Chest & Rib Study to improve technique for movements like body waves and Arabic step, then we'll work on Datura style combinations that feature those movements, as well as work towards deeper backbends and laybacks. There will be some yoga conditioning to prepare the body for strong backbends, as well as to stretch the back and hips to compensate for the intense work in that area. All levels of experience are welcome, though this class is best suited for those who have some experience with belly dance.

Register online: $115/session or $18/drop-in

Datura Style Performance Skills

This class is a complement to the Datura Style technique class. We’ll be using combos learned in the 6:30 PM class to dance with others. You’ll learn how to dance in duets, trios, and quartets using Datura Style combinations you’ve learned and additional improvisational techniques I’ll teach you in this class. Topics on costuming, makeup, and crafting a performance will also be presented. As the name implies, performance opportunities are available, but they are optional! All levels of experience are welcome. You must also be registered for the entire combinations class series. No drop-ins. Enrollment will be open to new participants at the beginning of each new class series, or by teacher permission. This is an ongoing class with a monthly fee.
