Holistic Belly Dance – Workshop with Laila Sabouni and Alana Mari

July 13 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

$25-$45 sliding scale

A holistic approach integrates the different dimensions of existence (mind, body, spirit is one way of phrasing this) and promotes self knowledge, mental health and wellness. This integrative workshop created collaboratively by Laila and Alana, includes: Mind-body exercises, meditation, Raqs Sharqi technique, combinations, traveling steps, and Baladi improvisation. We aim to offer an approach to belly dance (especially Raqs Sharqi & Baladi), that centers body awareness, mindfulness, & connection for well-being as we practice and learn.


+ all levels and abilities welcome, suitable for newcomers to "belly dance", dancers of other styles, and experienced Raqs Sharqi dancers alike. See scholarship/pay as able link below.

+ NOTE: We are offering pay-as-able spots and a couple scholarships. Please do not hesitate to apply.

+ adaptations and variations for ability will be offered / created as needed or requested.
