Gypsy! Intro to Belly Dancing




Class Description

Imagine the Gypsy dancing tradition – celebrating around the fire with women in brightly colored skirts and wild, flowing veils? You can’t keep from smiling as you dance to the aerobic 9/8 rhythms of Gypsy style and traditional gypsy music. In this class you’ll get great exercise, learn a set of classic steps (and a few invented by the instructor), and tips on assembling a costume. No prior dance experience necessary. Only requirement in this class is to have fun. Learn at your own pace, disabilities no problem – we will work around them. Janet Catherine Johnston (Leodunya) has performed in the US and abroad and is known for her seminars on Gothic Gypsy dancing and won awards for her flamboyant costumes. She has studied and observed Gypsy/Middle Eastern Dancing on visits to Hungary, Spain, Romania and Egypt.
