Sumptuous Skirt Dancing
Mondays- 6:30-7:30 PM
Online or In-Studio
Dancing with a skirt is a magical feeling and can add layers of drama and flair to your dancing. Lindsey's unique skirt style is a combination of Flamenco Araby, Romany skirt dancing and tribal skirt. This 4 week introductory class will give students of sampling of various styles of skirt dancing, as well as learn exciting moves and combos that can be combined into a fun choreography.
A 25 yd skirt is necessary for this class, but if you are taking online and do not wish to purchase a skirt, you can also use 2 long scarves tucked into your pants to simulate the skirt movements. Skirts will be available for in-studio students to use. No Experience needed. Links to purchase skirts can be found here.
Drop in whenever you want or purchase session to save. There are a limited amount of In-Studio spaces available on a first come/first serve basis. Classes are recorded and videos sent after class. If you cannot make the current class time, or wish to experience the whole session, purchase the full session and prior videos will be sent to you as well as new ones each week.

Choreography is suitable for both beginners and intermediate students, as Lindsey will demonstrate variations to increase the challenge. Performance opportunity may be available depending on status of Coronavirus at conclusion of session and we are able to hold our student recital, or may even do a video project. Performance not required.
