Spring Tribal Series with Orkideh
Let's continue drilling moves from our tribal vocabulary, add new steps and polish up elegant accents like head slides, floreos, and belly rolls. Steps come from Fat Chance Bellydance ATS, Gypsy Caravan as well as Serpentina North's own stylings that can be used for group improv.
Be prepared for a pilates-based warm up and to have fun. If you have a yoga mat, feel free to bring it along, since we start on the floor.
Dress in leggings or dance pants and a fitted tshirt or tank top. If you have a tasseled belt or hip scarf, feel free to wear it! We dance barefoot, but you are welcome to wear ballet slippers or other light dance shoes.
Full class cards (10 weeks) are $160, half class is $90.
Drop ins are welcomed, too, and are $20.
Snakebite Tribal, our student troupe, will run right after class, from 6:30-7:30. This extra hour will be an opportunity to practice dancing together and switch leaders and followers!
The troupe add-on is an extra $10 for the hour per class. You must attend class prior to rehearsal.

Kathak for Tribal Bellydancers
Due to popular demand, we are running a second, slightly longer workshop with Joanna De Souza!
Experience one of the sources that makes up the rich fusion that is tribal bellydance! Fundamental techniques and ideas that can be implemented within our dance form will be given, and if you missed out March 1st, you'll definitely want to jump in on this workshop. This time around, we're going to delve more into the storytelling and learn a kathak choreography!
Advance registration is $42 by April 4 / $50 after. Recommended for intermediate level bellydancers(tribal or traditional). Space will be limited, so hesitate to register sooner than later!

Wham! Bam! Belly Jam!
Come out in your dance finery, or not, and hang out for an evening of live electronic music, featuring JMBZ, and dance. This will not be a performance, but an opportunity to pull out your bellydance moves to live music – ATS, ITS, or fusion of whatever flavour and dance with others! Come dance or just hang back and watch.
Students, teachers, friends and family are welcome! $5 at the door.
