Like puppies, bellies growl when they're hungry, seek friendly pats when they're satisfied, and can't resist rolling in a strongly scented patch of grass. Let bellies wag with today's deal: for $39, you get four-week belly-dancing crash course at Saffron Dance, valid at locations in Falls Church and on Wilson Boulevard and South Quincy Street in Arlington, Virginia (an $80 value).
Saphira and her team of talented teachers serve as stomach-waving sherpas on your journey to discover belly dancing. Teachers make fundamentals easy to follow for any skill level, and each class builds on the moves learned during the last. All classmates start from scratch, learning maneuvers such as snakey-arm movements, shimmies, hip accents, traveling steps, and combinations in encouraging unison. As with blindfolded archery and turtle care, the secret to belly dancing is precision and control. You'll utilize and isolate underused muscles and untapped energy stores buried deep below skin's resource-rich crust.
Saffron's Intro to Belly Dancing course is offered evenings seven days a week in addition to midday Tuesday and Friday and weekend mornings. Classes must be taken on the same day of the week throughout the four-week course.
