With its sensuous twists and undulating curves, belly dancing can express a wide variety of emotions, from "Look at my belly!" to "See what I just did with my belly?" Learn to shimmy what you're thinking with this Groupon.
Choose from Three Options
- $16 for two belly-dance classes (up to a $40 value)
- $30 for four belly-dance classes (up to an $80 value)
- $43 for six belly-dance classes (up to a $120 value)
This deal is valid for any 30- or 60-minute class on the schedule. Jasmin recommends Belly Dance 1, which teaches the fundamentals of belly dance as well as how to use scarves and finger cymbals, or Belly Aerobics, which incorporates belly-dance movements into an aerobic and muscle-toning workout. For those with less time, Belly Express classes offer the same low-impact workout as Belly Aerobics but in enough time for students to get home before their treadmill realizes it’s been betrayed. Dancers opting for the six-class option may choose to register for the summer six-week session, which begins June 18, for enhanced continuity.
Jasmin Jahal School of Dance
Jasmin Jahal has an enduring memory of being 8 years old, practicing her pointe moves in a private ballet lesson, and realizing that a large group was peeking through the door to watch her dance. Her stomach fluttered with the thrill of performance—a sensation that persists to this day whenever she takes the stage. Ever since she discovered Egyptian dance at age 18, she’s studied it as an art, becoming one of only a handful of dancers to be dubbed Best Modern Egyptian Dancer by the International Academy of Middle Eastern Dance.
Her school encourages students to explore belly dance’s hypnotizing hip drops and shimmies in a comfortable, fun environment. Beginners wrapped in hip scarves learn to create alluring motions or imitate a sultry flagpole with veils while finger cymbals create their own splashes of rhythm. Regularly scheduled classes escalate to advanced levels that impart expert choreography and Arabic rhythms. Jasmin also offers Belly Aerobics classes focused on stretching and toning muscles with lightweight dumbbells and aerobic moves.
