Much like snake charmers, belly dancers hold the power to summon sacred energies with their magic, artistry, and the live mice they keep in their pockets. Tap into the power of your shimmy with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a 10-class punch card for belly-dance classes at Madrin'ha Dance Company's (an $80 value). Today's deal is valid at Madrin'ha's New Level, Simone Salsa, or Rizing Starz studios.
Madrin'ha is an award-winning Middle Eastern dancer who shares her knowledge of worldly hip-swiveling styles with rooms full of eager disciples. The level 1 class is an introduction to the rudiments of Middle Eastern dance and requires no previous dance experience. Walk into a class an ordinary pedestrian and dance out the door with newfangled moves such as traveling steps, elegant turns, smooth spins, and the classic Egyptian robot. Mixed-level lessons, on the other hand, are geared toward the entire scholarly spectrum, catering to both beginners and advanced apprentices, with a focus on tummy techniques, musical interpretation, and many specific topics and styles including classic oriental, saidi cane, kahleeji, and modern Egyptian.
Like the waves of the ocean or silk bloomers billowing on the clothesline, so will your body ripple and roll in the ecstatic freedom of undulation. Though the sensuous belly rolls, hip drops, and shoulder shimmies appear effortless, belly dancing students isolate core muscles to perform each gesture with precision and hone their bodies into lean, serpentine shapes that are perfect for navigating gutters.
