Yoga for Belly Dancers

Drawing from her lifelong practice and teaching experience of Hatha yoga, Badia will share her secrets for a long and healthy dance career. Instruction will include a yoga routine created especially for the needs of belly dancers. Employing awareness of proper alignment this practice will include methods for improving posture, flexibility, strength, relieving stress, avoiding injuries, and back pain.

No yoga experience is necessary. Bring a yoga mat.

Cymbals, Zills, Zagat!

Don’t be afraid of dancing with cymbals! Learn how to wear and use your finger cymbals properly and when to use them.

Badia will teach drills using a comprehensive progression from basic cymbal patterns and technique to a more intermediate/advanced level combined with various dance rhythms and movements.

This class includes movement combos correlating with cymbal pattern which will be used in the Oriental choreography workshop.

Bring your brass or wooden finger cymbals.

Vintage Oriental Choreography with Cymbals

Cymbals, Zills, Zagat! is a prerequisite for this workshop

Badia will teach a beautiful vintage style choreography at the intermediate level using finger cymbals throughout the entire dance. Advanced dancers may use this choreography as a template and embellish it to suit their personal style and level of dance. This choreography is not a “megence”, so no veil is required.

This choreography can also be done without the cymbals.

Bring your brass or wooden finger cymbals.

Perfect Shimmies

Would you like to shimmy like Fifi Abdo? Come and learn the secrets to perfectly loose relaxed shimmies in your hips, shoulders, and chest. Badia is a master of breaking down the mechanics of a perfect shimmy. She will teach shimmy drills that include transfer of weight and direction, layering, and travelling steps.

All levels of dancers are welcome.

Baladi Taksim Choreography

Badia will share her delicious, playful Egyptian baladi taksim choreography executed in the typical 80’s style. It will include sultry slower heavy movements, progressing into quicker travelling steps and shimmies all spiked with the yummy baladi accents that we all love.
