Hilary's classes include stretches and movement from the Gypsy Caravan format, as well as embodiment practice, meditation, community building, and body image empowerment. The curriculum is cumulative, reviewing and building on what we have learned in the previous class.
Beginning classes are designed for first-time students of bellydance and those who want a thorough breakdown of the basic steps. This class is an introduction to Tribal Style; we have fun while learning good technique. Most people take multiple sessions of this class before they feel ready for Intermediate.
Intermediate classes are for students who have achieved a level of comfort with Beginning material. In Intermediate, we add more information about music, and more movements, improvisation, and zils.
The Advanced Troupe class is for dancers who have achieved proficiency with Beginning and Intermediate movements. In this class we add complex improvisational formations, zil patterns, and combinations.. By instructor invitation.
