Modern Cymbals Belly Dance Wednesdays with Oloma: (10wks) Jan-Mar 2019

Do you want to hear music as you’ve never heard it before?

Then pick up your cymbals and let’s go! They may only be small, but finger cymbals (or zills) hold the key to a whole new kingdom of rhythm and musicality. Improve your dexterity and co-ordination as you learn to make the right sounds, and create magical combinations of rhythms that add a cheeky sense of fun or dramatic excitement to any routine.

This course brings a modern twist to a traditional prop, as you’ll learn to belly dance with your cymbals to Shakira’s Loca song which is packed full of upbeat rhythms and fun!

How many people can dance and play a musical instrument at the same time? You’ll be one of them if you take this course… and what better way to wow your guests with your multitasking skills than by taking part in our end of term Showcase!

Note: This course is suitable for students currently at Level 4, 5 and 6, and for Tribal Fusion Level 3+ students too 🙂 Cymbals are provided for use during classes, but are not available to take home or for use in the Showcase. We advise that you invest in a set for your home practice and/or if you’d like to perform at the show.

Book your place today

Entry to the venue is up to 15 minutes before class start time. Please sign in at reception on arrival then head to the studio to dance with us!

Please note: Students may use the gym’s changing rooms and dance studio, but the use of any other facilities (e.g. showers, swimming pool etc.) is not permitted by the venue. Exit for this class is by 9.55pm at the latest, in accordance with our contract with the Club, so there won’t be time to use the changing rooms once the class has finished. Instead, you’ll have your belongings with you in the studio and can simply pull your trousers over your leggings, change your shoes and put on your coat 🙂
