PRICING : Dance Classes are something that beginners LOVE to say an enthusiastic “YES ! ” to, but tend to get cold feet on the first day and Bailing Out has been way too easy without prepayment. Bellydance is now $95 for 8 90 minute classes. Compare that to other classes- Not bad ! A check or cash for $95 assures you of a spot for 8 consecutive weeks. I mean $95 for the entire 8 week session which takes about 2 months. The Class finish date will be extended if we have necessary”snow day” cancellations
The money is not as important to me as your regular attendance. Perfect 8 class on-time attendance will be rewarded with a 50% refund at the end of the session if you need the money back. And accepting your reward does not offend Me in the least. It takes several classes before you can be sure you are “getting it”. And It may take more than that before it actually feels good. Give it a chance to work. 8 classes will actually get you somewhere. “Dropping In” when you feel like it is a waste of our time. A make-up class will be offered somewhere halfway into the session to give anyone who needs some catch-up time and the chance to know you did 8 classes.
THERE’S NO WAY TO ACCURATELY ASSESS YOUR LEVEL BY PHONE .
PREVIOUS DANCE EXPERIENCE ? of any sort is strongly recommended. If you have been seriously sedentary for years or have absolutely no rhythm, this is NOT the best place to start. This is targeted for those who consider that they move fairly well already. If you are new to dancing and want to just try it and see , call Me and we can discuss this. Another class may establish for newest absolute beginners level. CLASSES CONDUCTED ON A SPRUNG AND FLOATING DANCE FLOOR
WHAT TO WEAR: Belly exposure is not necessary, but you do need form fitting clothing on your torso. I’ll need to determine if your knees are bent or straight, so -no long skirts , please. Yoga , sweatpants, or Dance pants are good. A bright hip scarf is a very good idea, too , Especially one with fringe to accentuate your Pelvic movement. Please Have your hair out of your face. Wearing A good ,sturdy, uplift bra is highly recommended .
SHOES ? YES ! Bare feet tend to stick to the wood floor and you need to be able to swivel. A Dance slipper with a smooth leather sole is ideal. ( I have some loaners ) Dirty Socks are the next best thing. Payless has Ballet Slippers for 20 bucks. They are just right.
