45 Minute Belly Dancing Lesson
I will teach you some of the basics of belly dancing aka Middle Eastern dance aka baladi:
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
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.

About Ilana Rubin
Update: I am taking a break from Simbi for a couple months, so please take no offense if I do not respond! I am a life enthusiast and non profit human services manager, with passions for: dance (be...lly 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 two 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 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.show moreOpen to other proposals
