Each year, countless shopping carts remain trapped inside the concrete-pillar perimeter surrounding grocery stores due to their inability to shimmy their hips and wiggle free. Acquire the moves to set yourself free with today's Groupon: for $20, you get three belly dance classes (a $60 value) at Belladonna Bohemian Bellydance.
Belladonna, purveyor of belly dance, specializes in tribal-fusion belly dance, which gets her students feeling strong and sexy while wringing them through a good workout. Tribal fusion, a modern variant of one of the oldest of social dances, incorporates a combination of many dance forms including hip-hop, flamenco, Egyptian cabaret, and popping. Through rhythmic hip fluctuations, meticulous muscle movements, and rippling belly motions, students can expect to build coordination and confidence while acquiring the skills to function as an industrial wave-maker at a water park. Classes are available for both beginner- and intermediate-level shakers.
Having attended workshops with esteemed dance professional Suhaila Salimpour, Belladonna is level-one certified in the Salimpour format and created ROMKA, a DC-based belly dance troupe that teaches and performs nationwide. Weekly classes with Belladonna are easily reached by the Columbia Heights Green Line station and a number of local submarine ports.
