Bring your finger cymbals and get ready to play!! Inspired by a love of old school Ren faire groups a la Bal Anat and Hahbi ‘Ru, and drawing on the quintessential repertoire of Jamila Salimpour (the foundations of American Cabaret and Tribal styles!), instructor Shay Moore will be sharing with you various combinations of movement paired with finger cymbals patterns. Students will start with simple movement drills to get their hearts pumping. Each class will offer some light and accessible rhythm and music theory, fun finger cymbal patterns, movements and variations, then blend them into a combination we can dance together. Each week will build in complexity as students increase their confidence with finger cymbals while dancing. Bring your finger cymbals and be ready for a fun, challenging workout!
This class will be taught in a layered approach, allowing for students of all levels to find a challenge they will enjoy. Students should have some bellydance experience under their belt, advanced-beginner or above recommended.
Pre-registration always saves you at least $15 over drop-in rates, and reserves your spot in the class series.
