Ajna Tribal Instructor: Missy Moore brings Belly Dance Class

WHEN : Sunday's in October 6th-December 15, 2019

COST: FREE (Open to the Community)

TIME: 4:30PM - 5:30PM


Description: Free community classes starting at Dogtown Dance Theatre this October presented by Ajna Tribal instructor, Missy Moore. Come join a unique type of folkloric belly dance in which you learn the “vocabulary” (moves) of the dance and the non-verbal “cues” alerting you to which moves are coming next, then just “follow the leader” as the entire dance group appears to move together in synchronicity. This type of dance is a “melting pot” that joins together traditional dance moves from various countries such as India, Spain, Persia, North Africa and the Middle East in new and exciting ways. Whether you have never danced before or are a seasoned dancer, come and enjoy American Tribal Style® (ATS®) belly dance! Donations are welcome.
