Fanveils Belly Dance Sundays with Fleur: (10wks) Jan-Mar 2020

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

Combi-level course: Single fanveils for students who are new to the prop; double fanveils for students who’ve learnt single fanveils before 🙂

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.

If you’ve successfully mastered a single fanveil, take the next step and challenge yourself to master two! Dancing with double fanveils helps you to develop your muscle co-ordination, and to become mindful of the way your movements cause two props to interact with each other and your dance.

They take your isolation techniques to the next level as both of your arms, wrists and hands are engaged in strong, consistent, rapid movements while the rest of your body remains fluid and relaxed. Fine tune your multitasking skills as you discover the endless artistry double fanveils can create!

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 🙂 And with the combination of single and double fanveils, this course’s choreography will be unique and even MORE exciting than normal!

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. NB: Please let us know when you book the course if you need to borrow fanveils (single or double) or if you’ll be using your own, so we can make sure we have enough to lend at class.
