8 Weeks | 2 Sessions per week | 45 Videos | Int

 

This 8 week series provides you with a well-rounded practice geared toward setting you fully into solid intermediate belly dance technique. Whether you're a beginner feeling ready to move forward, or you're already an intermediate dancer who is looking to get back in the saddle of a regular practice schedule, after these 8 weeks of Raq Steady, you'll definitely see changes.

Your program includes yoga and Pilates warm ups and cool downs to increase strength & flexibility, technique classes with all 4 of our Datura teachers, review of essential fundamentals, and two full choreographies.

The weeks are broken into two sessions, which means two days/nights of practice per week. You pick the time that works best for you.

Each session includes a warm up, drills, technique, a combo, and a section of a choreography. Each session is 1 1/2 to 2 hours in length.

For this program, you'll need a yoga mat, water bottle and zils.
