Intro Veil Choreography begins on October 5.
Swirling veils have been a mainstay of many styles of belly dance for a very long time. Join us to explore how to enhance your dance using the different styles of veil movements.

We'll be learning a brief belly dance choreography featuring dancing with the veil.

What to Wear: Wear clothes that are comfortable for movement and that allow the teacher to see your body position. You may want to bring a scarf to tie around your hips, but it is not required. You can dance barefoot, in socks, or in dance shoes. If you wear shoes, something with a flexible sole would be best unless you require stiff soles or orthotics for extra support.

Accessibility Information: The studio is up a straight flight of stairs with a handrail (approximately 18 steps). There is no elevator access available at this location.

Drop-ins are welcome. This a multi-level class that offers variations and modifications suitable for beginners through advanced dancers.
