Ooey Gooey Overview

4 Weeks | 4 Sessions per week | 45 Videos | Int/Adv

 

Takin' it slow ain’t always easy. Slow movement in Belly Dance comes off best when paired with strong technique, a confident gaze, and impeccable muscle control. This program will guide you to mastering slow movements that are big and fluid; ones that can truly cast a spell on the crowd, and will also help your fast technique become stronger as well!

This program features four sessions of mix and match Datura Online classes per week. Feel free to shift it around to whichever four days work best for your schedule. Each of these D.O. sessions will run between 1.5 and 2 hours.

We will begin the program with a key workshop from one of the Queens of ooey gooey movement, Rachel Brice, and then break the workshop down into segments, adding other dance and yoga classes that compliment the technique in each segment.

The key to impressive slow movement is to be strong, yet relaxed. So don’t forget to breathe deep, and cultivate some moments of calm throughout the week!

Have a water bottle, yoga mat, yoga blocks, yoga strap, a pair of small weights nearby and something to balance (ex. a cane, sword, craft dowel, book, bean-bag, small child -just kidding!)
