(aka ‘The Harder One’)

Tuesday evenings, 7:45 – 9:00pm, at Studio 44 in Wangara.

Shula (flame) – burning bright! This class is aimed at high-level intermediate and advanced students, and those looking to develop their performance skills with a group focus, i.e. spatial awareness, blocking and stage presence. Props are frequently used, adding an extra element of complexity.

(aka ‘The Easier One’)

Wednesday evenings, 6:00 – 7:15pm, at Studio 44 in Wangara.

Ignite – get those flames started! This class is aimed at advanced beginners to intermediate level students, or for those who just want a fun and social way to get some exercise. A great way to get back into dancing if you’ve been on a bit of a break!

Both classes are choreography-driven: while movement/technique will be broken down and drilled as appropriate, students are expected to have some experience ‘beyond the basics’ in dance.

If you’re a complete beginner, Andriya can recommend an appropriate beginners bellydance class for individuals according to your location or can organise a one-off beginners course for small groups at a mutually suitable time. Please message for further information.
