If you have never taken bellydance classes before, the first class you will take is one from the Discover Bellydance series. It is recommended that you start with the 101 course, but you may start with any in the 100 level. It does not matter the order you take them in. All courses have different material and you must complete all 100 level courses before moving on to the 200 level.
There are also specialty courses which may be taken at any time. These courses are designated with the letter “S.” As long as you have taken at least one 100 level course, you may start taking specialty courses. These courses will cover prop usage as well as introduce and delve more into working with zills (finger cymbals). They may also be lecture classes covering history or costuming.
In order to attend the Beyond the Basics 200 level classes, you must have completed the entire 100 level Discover Bellydance series of classes. If you wish to take the Beyond the Basics series and haven't completed the Discover Bellydance series, please contact Alyssa to discuss your experience level prior to registering.
Fitness Class Cards are also available at discounted rates for the more dedicated student. Please consider the Bellydance Fitness classes to help with strength and flexibility. Although no prior dance experience is necessary, this class was designed for improving weaknesses you may have which in turn, improves your dancing.

DANCE CLASS GENERAL OVERVIEW
Alyssa's classes are designed around the American Cabaret/Oriental style of bellydance. Topics may vary from class to class, but there is a focus on the breakdown of movements and drilling them so they become part of the student’s muscle memory.
Some classes will cover prop use in bellydance (veils, zills/finger cymbals, cane, fire/candles, tray balancing, etc.) as well as rhythms heard in Middle Eastern music. The history and different cultures behind the dance will also be briefly discussed in beginner classes. Some classes will go more in depth on certain topics than others, which will be noted in the class session description.
All first time students are provided with a class notebook. A notebook can be one of the best assets to your improvement as a dancer. Carry this notebook to any of your dance classes and to any workshops that you attend. Taking notes is encouraged. It is easy to forget something a day or two after class! It is also a great place to keep handouts that will be given every week. They will cover detailed notes on the movements we are learning, rhythm breakdowns, brief blurbs on history, culture, costuming, instruments used in Middle Eastern music and even Arabic words you commonly hear in songs. There will also be space for taking your own notes.
Last, but not least, do not hesitate to ask questions in class! People learn at different rates and some students may feel they can progress to the next class and sometimes they feel it is best to take the session again. For this reason, the same topic is covered in classes sharing the same session number. There is no pressure to progress to the next session if you feel that you have not mastered the content covered. All of Alyssa's classes are for women only. If you are a man who is interested in bellydance instruction, please read the FAQs page.
