Instructor Nataliya Saborio draws upon her award-winning competitive dance career in Ukraine to lead a schedule of 60-minute belly-dance sessions stratified into three difficulty levels. Dancers need no prior experience to pick up modalities such as current class topic Egyptian pop beledi. The Middle Eastern cocktail of classic belly-dance movements, isolations, and shimmies syncs to beledi beats as energizing and addicting as a caffeinated Twinkie.
