Fat Chance Bellydance Style Fundamentals 6.30pm
Modern FCBD-Style is about sharing a dance with others. It is a conversation of movements, improvised using known phrases. It is a style that holds firm to oriental bellydance traditions but has influences from around the world. Beginner & advanced
It’s not unusual for intermediate students to attend this class, to maintain their technique. Even if you have learned regular bellydance, it’s always best to start with this Beginners class in FCBD Style, as the technique and concepts are different.
FCBD is a modern belly dance style created in the US. It’s a rich fusion of many folkloric dance styles from all over the world. For faster progress, it’s recommended to take this class in conjunction with the 30 minute technique class which follows it. For more information on the style see: fcbd.com/about/about-ats/
FCBD Drills & Technique (30 minutes) 7.30 pm
This course cannot be taken on its own. It is an optional (but recommended) extra for students in the 6.30pm class, and a compulsory warm-up for the 8pm Tribal Fusion class (except in special cases!).
Modern Fusion Bellydance 8pm
Tribal Fusion combines FCBD moves with other dance forms, often ‘oriental bellydance’. This class teaches and drills isolations, transitions, layers, combinations and choreography, in the modern fusion style, with a strong FCBD base. For Beyond Beginners and up.
