SS-8 Bellydancing
Charisse Sisou

In this introductory workshop, get ready to let your hair down and have some fun! Bellydance has been a way for women and girls to stay fit, connect with their femininity and get down with their girlfriends since time immemorial. It’s also been a way for the womanly art of playful flirtation to be passed down from generation to generation. You’ll learn basic sassy moves, then put them together into a short and fun dance, laced with the instructor’s most effective flirting secrets - for you to use on or off the dance floor! No dance experience necessary, all bodies and types welcome (even any brave gentlemen who care to join us)!
