Essential Rhythms for Dancers

Friday, February 21, 2014

Do you know your samai from your saidi? Learn the essential rhythms that all bellydancers need to know. You will learn the basic structure of rhythms so you can recognize them no matter who is playing and what instrument they’re playing on.

You will improve your musicality as dancer, develop the foundation vocabulary that is essential for choreographing or communicating music ideas to others and improve your ability to talk to musicians about the kinds of music you want to hear.

Please bring a drum to class. If you don’t have one, you can order one through, they’re having a huge sale right now. We suggest a drum that is 11 x 17.5″ and has a rounded edge like this drum. Alternatively you can visit Bellydance America in NYC to buy one.

For those enrolled in the Bellyqueen Teacher Training on Feb 28th-Mar 2nd, you will get a head start on learning the music section of the test!

$30 adv, $40 at the door, $25 for Bellyqueen members
