Each class consists of a warm-up routine, designed to break down the movement vocabulary of Raqs Sharqi, which is incorporated into various choreographies. There are brief explanations on the historical and social background of Raqs Sharqi (Eastern dance in Arabic, more popularly known in the West as belly dance), and Middle Eastern culture as well. These dance classes are designed to introduce you to the true spirit and meaning of one of the oldest dances on earth, that is to say, joy and happiness.
