Colorful, floating veils are an iconic bellydance prop - and learning to dance with one is quite the arm workout!
About the Event
This 1 hour workshop will introduce you to bellydancing with a veil by combining 30 minutes of bellydance fitness + 30 minutes of choreography. No dance experience is needed! This is perfect for beginner/intermediate bellydancers who want to give veil work a try. Dancers with more experience will find the workout portion is perfect for building strength, stamina, and confidence that will shine when you're on stage.
We’ll start by learn veil basics in a fun, easy-to-follow fitness format. It’s not just an amazing core, cardio, and upper body workout - you’ll learn authentic bellydance technique too!
Once you’ve got the moves down, we’ll move on to a simple, beginner-friendly choreography incorporating these movements set to a beautiful classic Egyptian song.
If you join in person, we’ll have extra veils for you to borrow. If you are joining online, you’ll need a rectangular silk or chiffon veil roughly 3 yards long and a yard wide. A piece of lightweight fabric or a large scarf can also work. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need any help purchasing a veil before the workshop.
