Belly dancing replaced smoke signals as the primary means of long-distance, inaudible communication after grizzly bears learned to use forest fires to lure handsome pilots into their den. Stay one step ahead of North America's second-largest carnivore with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get six female-only belly-dance classes at Nazeem Allayl Belly Dance Studio (up to a $60 value). This Groupon is valid at Nazeem Allayl’s Little Five Points, Perimeter, and Windy Hill studios. Choose to sign up for a six-week course in a single class or use your Groupon spontaneously on six separate pay-as-you-go classes of your choice. You’ll need to purchase a veil or other props for classes that require them.
Nazeem Allayl Belly Dance Studio offers tons of belly-dance styles for beginners, as well as intermediate and advanced students who bring their own bellies from home instead of using the ones provided by the studio. You’ll learn technical skills through choreography so that you leave the six-week course with a complete routine, full of patterns and combinations your body can easily weave together into its own tapestry. Translate the rhythm of your hips into your fingers when you learn to play zills, or twirl in a feminine whirl of fabric with a graceful veil dance that’s great for toning your arms as well as finally utilizing your vast veil inheritance.
Learn the enchanted Pharonic dance—a mesmerizing manipulation of fiery lamps—or pick up the pace with an ebullient Bollywood routine. You can even shake it like Shakira dancing to Shakira in a choreography class that, like Shakira in a Shakira video, fuses Latin and Middle Eastern dance. Check out Nazeem Allayl’s calendar for class times and locations.
