Andalee's Birthday Bash
Andalee was invited to be the featured guest artist at Amara al Amir's monthly event "Arabic Night" at Mosaic Wine Lounge. Because the event is so close to my birthday, I decided to make it a birthday party, too! Come on out for some wine and dance. In addition to headlining the event, Andalee's student troupe the Nightingales will also be performing. More details below!
Summer Belly Dance Classes
Summer is always a great time to indulge in a favorite activity. Maybe this summer it will be belly dancing! Andalee's newest class will focus on basic technique, fun shimmy drills, and maybe a little chillaxing!
Ninth Street Dance
1920 1/2 Perry St., Durham, NC 27705
Learn traditional Middle Eastern dance movements that have been passed down for generations in this entry-level class. Beginning belly dance is about learning how to connect with your body and spirit. Suitable for all shapes, sizes and activity levels, but you will get a work out! This class will focus on improving flexibility, conditioning the body in order to do the movements properly, and building stamina. You will learn basic belly dance techniques that focus on the core aspects of the dance. Wear comfortable clothes. Pants or shorts are preferred as we may stretch on the floor. Bring water. Dance shoes and hip scarves are optional. Signing up for a whole session and attending classes consecutively is strongly encouraged as each class will build upon the previous classes. New students may try one class per session on a complimentary basis. If you decide to enroll, this class will be counted as your first class; payment will be due by the beginning of your second class. For more information or to register visit Ninthstreetdance.com.
