Swords Belly Dance Mondays with Lana: (5wks) July 2019

Why is balancing a sword on your head so beneficial?

Because it requires intense muscle isolation, excellent posture and balance, and extreme control throughout all your movements. And those are core skills linked to every aspect of belly dancing! Learn to delegate movement to your hips and other parts of your body while you keep your head still and your sword balanced on top. Discover how to be powerfully precise with the placement of every move you make. And, of course, swords naturally ramp up the drama and excitement of any belly dance routine!

Note: Swords are provided for use during classes, but are not available to take home. We advise that you invest in a sword for your home practice.

Why 5 weeks?

Because summer time often means summer holidays, woohoo! Our 10-week courses have their own little holiday during July-August, and our 5-week courses shimmy in from stage left to work their summer season 🙂 These shorter courses offer a flexible way to keep dancing during the holiday season… join us in July, August – or both!

What to wear

Comfortable clothing that you can move and stretch in!

For example:

  • leggings
  • a short or long top
  • barefoot / anti-slip socks / flexible sole slipper
  • optional coinbelt / hipscarf

Don’t have a coinbelt? We sell some in classes, or you can simply bring a winter scarf to wrap around your hips. Some students don’t wear a scarf nor a belt so don’t worry if you prefer to opt out!
