We are pleased to present three Introductory Belly Dance classes.  June 1, 8, & 15, 2023, 9:00 am - 10 a.m.  Belly dance, also known as "raks sharki or "dance of the East"  focuses on isolated movements of the hips, torso, and abdomen rather than legs and arms as in the West.  It is suitable for people of all sizes and ages. Benefits include increased range of motion and core strengthening.  You will have fun  while becoming aware of muscles seldom used.  These classes will be taught by Rhoda Lichy, who has many years of experience teaching ballet and belly dance as well as leading group fitness classes. She is ACE and Silver Sneaker certified and a member of the Blue Lotus Middle Eastern Dance Troupe.
