I have been belly dancing for over 10 years. Taking classes with me, I can teach you how to move your hips, belly, arms to belly dance. I like to focus on each part and take it step by step until you are able to move your hips, belly, arms, shoulders, and face to the rythm of the music. I will teach you how to belly dance and will also watch you belly dance and correct your movements and provide you tips for improvement. My goal is for you to reach your goal of becoming a great belly dancer.

Belly dancing gives the female body legitimization to be "round", in contrast to modern Western cultural preferences for flat stomachs. The Belly Dance is identified by swaying hips, undulating torso, and articulated isolations employed in a range of dynamic and emotional expressions. Characteristic movements in the dance include curving patterns, undulations, thrusts, lifts, locks, and drops, and shaking or quaking body movements. The focus is on isolated movements of individual parts of the body with little notice given to the footsteps. Arms and hands move fluidly, like serpents or ribbons in the air. Unusual strength and control is demonstrated in the belly area.

Come learn with me!

About Jenny B.

Belly dancing is an ancient art and has been a fixture of weddings and parties in the Middle East for centuries. I will start teaching you from basics and build you up to learn and become a proficient belly dancer. I have a lot of patience to teach and can guide you step by step. I will start by setting sometime to focus on one area of the body. For example, snake arms dance. Once that's mastered we would move on to show you how to move your hips, and so on so forth. Each part of the body plays an important function to belly dancing. For example, you let your hips and belly take the leadership position, your arms assist and help you present the next move. As such playing the assistant role. Your face softens the dance and brings out feminine energy. I will teach you how to follow the music, listen to the beat closely and belly dance to the music and the role and function of each body part.

Jenny is just wonderful. She explains and demonstrates so well. If I don’t understand something, she finds another way to describe and explain. Plus she makes we work hard which I love. I come out of lessons feeling like I just did a workout.
