Term 2 ending and changes for Term 3

Reminder that there is NO CLASS on 12th June Queens Birthday this only affects the Monday classes. Wednesday class will run as per normal. The remainder of term two has 2 weeks left for the Monday classes and 3 weeks left for the Wednesday class.

At the moment I feel like a proud mum, the Troupe have finished learning their 5.20 minute Classical Egyptian choreography using a prop I call Nell-wings (named after one of the Troupe members).  Our final 2 weeks in Troupe will be used to polish this exquisite routine.  Term 3 will see the Troupe learning Tea Candle technique and combinations with future opportunity for a choreography using this prop.

Gisborne class have been refining their Level 1 & 2 techniques and will be receiving a Certificate of Achievement at the end of this term.  Don’t tell them – it’s a surprise.  In Term 3 the Gisborne group will be furthering their technique and learning Khaleegi a folkloric style from the Arabian Gulf.

Beginners will be gaining skills in foundational techniques and taught how to build upon them within the term.  They will also get an introduction to the beautiful art of dancing with a belly dance veil.

Enrolments are now open for Term 3 which runs from 17th July to 23rd September, 10 weeks for $160 or $20 casual. My classes run for an hour and a half to include a through 20-30 minute warm up and tone session, warm-up time depends on what techniques will be taught in the lesson. Following that a 45-55 minute session of technique, combos, drills or choreography along with a 15 min stretch cool down at the end of the class. See the classes page for easy payment options.

Term 3 brings with it a plethora of bad weather conditions like extreme cold and winds, rain, fog and sometimes snow. With this in mind I do not conduct night classes in Woodend in term 3 only.  This year I have also decided for 3rd term only to conduct day classes across the board as numbers decrease with the very cold and windy weather. I hope this may encourage more people to come out during the day and do some fun and empowering, body toning and fitness exercise that is suitable for all shapes, sizes and levels of fitness.  Even if you have limited movement I can modify it for you.

Much Love, Deb
