Naimah–Saucy & Slinky: Belly Dance Inspired Choreography
Calling all Divas, Vixens, Sirens, Vamps, and Bombshells! This fun and empowering workshop is for non-belly dancers and belly dancers who want to explore a bolder side of themselves. This class was created to pull many out of their comfort zone and bring forth an all new level of self-confidence with emphasis on style, grace, and stage presence. We will use sassy and lively exercises and combinations and take glamorous aspects of the art of belly dance and combine it with slinky elements of heels dance and blend them musically, theatrically and visually to create a sultry piece.
Naimah (she/her) is an award winning belly dancer from Baltimore, MD and director of award-winning troupe, Amandari. With a background in ballet, modern, hip hop, African dance, and fine art, her style is best described as eclectic and eccentric. She teaches online classes on a multitude of topics pertaining to belly dance including history, culture, strength, flexibility, and more. She calls this format “Multiversal Movement” as belly dance and performance art in general is multidimensional. She is also a recently certified group fitness instructor. Naimah has produced many shows in Maryland and is currently the co-producer of Maryland’s largest belly dance festival, Art of the Belly, in Ocean City, MD.
Student requirement for class: Comfortable stretchy clothing for movement, bare feet
Note: No street shoes or high heels (only dance shoes for the dance studio or bare feet).
