Try This: Bellydance Workshops

Get wiggling at Studio 1831 with a whole weekend of Bellyjam

Professional instructor Mahin can teach you to move your hips like never before

Instead of lounging around poolside, why not spend a weekend this summer learning something new while trimming your waist? On July 30 – 31, get to Studio 1831 on Brandywine Street for Bellyjam workshops with professional dancer Mahin. During these day-long classes, Mahin will teach you to move your hips in fun, Egyptian styles of belly dance, covering basic techniques and strategies for freestyle practice, all following her “in the ears, out the hips” philosophy. Styles include Saidi, Malfouf, Beladi and Chiftitelli. – Kathryn Siegel
