Nicole: Beyond Beginner Belly Dance

Nicole Malinoff: Beyond Beginning Belly Dance, Wednesdays 5:45-6:45pm, studio B


Nicole has been studying belly dance for 10 years with a wide variety of local, visiting and international instructors. Her primary focus has been on the Egyptian style, which she loves it for its simplicity, elegance and warmth.

In Beyond Beginning, Nicole hopes to fill the gap between total beginner and intermediate. Students will have the opportunity to move safely into the world of combos and choreography, while staying firmly rooted in the fundamentals. She will also guide students in listening and improvisation exercises in order to develop their own musicality and instincts. Nicole prioritizes awareness, comfort and joy in the body. She will also include information on the culture and history of this dance whenever possible. This class is geared toward anyone with some previous belly dance experience. All ages, genders and bodies welcome.  $65 for 6 weeks, $13 to drop in. B side. Contact Nicole to sign up at
