45 Minute Belly Dancing Lesson

35


35 simbi per session - Virtual OK

I will teach you some of the basics of belly dancing aka Middle Eastern dance aka baladi:

Posture
How to isolate different parts of your body (head, shoulders, chest, hips, arms)
How to layer basic moves on each other
I will ask for your input on what you want to learn, or I can choose what to teach if you are not sure.
Let me know if you have any pre-existing injuries/pain/weaknesses so that we can dance safely.
A small sample of moves that I can teach: hip bumps, shimmies, snake arms, shoulder rolls, body undulation/camel, and many more!

The lesson will consist of:
Brief discussion of what we will be learning, your preferences, and making sure audio/visual/music is all working well
Warm up and stretching
Reviewing proper posture
Learning and practicing new moves
Learning and practicing simple combo(s) of moves learned so far
Cool down
Smiles!

It's such a fun dance, suitable for all ages and shapes. Give it a try if you are interested!

Training & Qualifications


I took belly dancing lessons for several years and was then in a semi-professional belly dancing troupe, performing a few times a year. I taught a belly dancing basis class one evening at a college. I consider myself to be an advanced amateur.

Availability & Preferences


Contact me and we will set up a time to do the lesson via Skype.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Ilana Rubin

I am a life enthusiast and non profit human services manager, with passions for: dance (belly dance/Middle Eastern dance, east coast swing/lindy, blues dance, and open to more), photography (beginner ...and wanting to learn), foraging (Hey plants! I eat you!), cooking, pets (I have three CUTE rats currently), wildlife, gardening, and more. I have dabbled in other hobbies at one time or another in the past, and then put them down to pick up something else. Latent hobbies include: flute, scherenschnitte (paper cutting), sewing...and I recently fixed my own washer with the help of YouTube (before joining Simbi)! I am always looking to enhance and expand my skill set while learning, sharing, and having fun! **I am currently taking a little longer than usual to do some things, but I will 100% get them done! Please bear with me while I go through this time period. Thank you!** I have been having a fabulous time on Simbi so far, and look forward to learning and sharing even more. If there is anything you are curious about that is not listed as a specific service, please send me a message to see if we can work something out together. Yes, I am still looking for additional unique tips for frugal living! Scroll down on this page and click on my request for more information.show more
