Schedule : Winter 2019

NEWS**In accordance to the Devadasi tradion we are not synching up our courses to the lunar cycle.  Each course will now begin on the Thursday nearest the new moon and follow through waxing, full and waning moon. Sometimes this will be reflected in our dance and sometimes it will be there purely for ourselves to cultivate more awareness of our own cycle and that of the turning of the earth, seasons and the maha(great) teacher, time.

This class is designed as a model for your core training of Belly dance in its raw form, in its sacred form and in its creative form. Our aim is to build posture and presence physically as we nurture our depth and alignment internally. Dance is a daily practice and we will learn to live the movements not just learn them.  We cover fundamental technique, alignment and knowledge in the Tribal repertoire and the Sacred Earth Belly dance language.
This class is suitable for beginners and for intermediate and beyond students consolidating their practice.

*Intermediate and Beyond. Choreography, Intelligent Improvisation and performance skills.
Every Thursday night : 8-9pm.

In this class we will expand our dance knowledge to involve choreographic sequences, intelligent improvisation, group and solo concepts, musicality, creativity, and core rhythm theory. The emphasis is on greater depth, intricacy and wisdom to your dance.
This class is designed for those familiar with the dance vocabulary and intention within Hannah Mi Anis’ teaching repertoire. If you are new to Hannah’s classes please attend the  Foundations class in unison with this class.

The Foundations class is designed for all levels. Suitable for beginners, and excellent for intermediate and beyond students’ continuing practice.
