Fanveils Belly Dance with Shaddy: (10wks) Jan-Mar 2019

Can you keep your fanveil fluttering while your body’s on holiday?

To keep a fanveil fluttering requires plenty of strength and rapid movement in your hand, wrist and arm – while the rest of your body looks calm and serene! The key to successfully dancing with a fanveil is to refine your isolation techniques – and that’s exactly what this course teaches you. Discover how to isolate your fanveil’s movements, alongside new ways of dancing and turning with fluidity and grace.

Do you find turns a challenge? Don’t panic! This course helps you tackle your turning fears in a new and colourful way. When you turn with a prop, you really have to master the technique – and you’ll see instantly when you’ve got it right because your fanveil will happily follow wherever you guide it.

You have the option to perform at our end of term Belly Dance Showcase with this course – fluttering fanveils are always a real crowd pleaser!

Note: Fanveils are provided for use during classes, but are not available to take home or use in the Showcase. We advise that you invest in a fanveil for your home practice and/or if you’d like to perform at the show.
