Level 1 Suhaila
These classes are designed to teach students necessary skills, technique and terminology to develop organic movement, to move forward in dance and create their own expression through bellydance. Class is taught in alignment to Suhaila Salimpour format. They follow a very structured and easy to understand warm-up for strengthening, movement breakdown, technique explanation, drills, finger cymbals, foot patterns and super fun combinations!
Level 1 Jamila
Jamila Salimpour, Suhaila’s mother, was the first belly dance teacher to create a specific format of movements with individual names for each step. The original 70's style Belly Dance! The steps she created are now the majority of belly dance movements taught today. Jamila’s format was the inspiration and foundation of what later became known as American Tribal Style. Jamila is also the master of finger cymbals. The class begins with playing cymbal patterns and then moves on to practicing moves in a circle around the room. Be prepared to use cymbals the entire class. Each class is different and invaluable as far as developing both dance and finger cymbal skills, as well as learning the history of belly dance movements in America. Jamila truly is the American matriarch of belly dance!
Level 2 Suhaila
Students add to the knowledge built in Level 1 using the skill and technique to obtain higher focus in practice, movement application, precision and dance ability, achieving a greater level of movement fluidity and endurance/efficiency. Finger cymbals added to movement & foot patterns increases strength and adds that additional sparkle to the “bellydance” aspect!! Class is taught in alignment to Suhaila Salimpour format. They follow the warm-up for strengthening, movement application, technique execution, drills, finger cymbals, extensive foot patterns and of course fantastic combinations. These classes are fun and challenging! Instructor approval is required to before taking Level 2.
