Gina’s open-level class welcomes dancers to the glamorous world of cabaret and theatre-style belly dance, as well as the dramatic world of contemporary theater and fusion styles.  Technique is based on elements of Egyptian, Turkish and American Cabaret, with warm-up and performance concepts borrowed from Western concert dance such as ballet, modern and jazz.  This class is designed for all levels.  For beginners it's a great challenge.  For the intermediate and advanced student it's a great way to work on technique and adding special skills (zils) to your movement.  Live drumming accompaniment every First Wednesday!
