In case you haven't heard, the one and only Majda Anwar of Awalim is now teaching at Dance 101! Teejei paved the way for tribal belly dance at this studio, and Majda has taken the reins with two classes every Monday night. Majda has been teaching at Georgia Tech for several years, but now everyone can have the privilege of studying with one of metro Atlanta's true "raqs stars!"
At 7:00, it's Discover Belly Dance. Dance 101's structure includes a variety of "Discover," or beginner classes. Majda's contribution will introduce students to the fundamentals of the form. Then at 8:00, more experiences students can experience Majda's new "Killer Drills" class. This class includes conditioning, then a series of traveling drills with layered movement, plus finger cymbals in various rhythms. Majda's goal is to challenge dancers to discover new things about how their bodies work and devote attention to the muscularity and body mechanics that make movement more efficient and allow for easier layering. Students are encouraged to work at their own pace and modify the movements as needed, while also stretching their capabilities.
If you want to take your dance to the next level, come and check out Majda's new classes! Dance 101 is an beautiful, all-adult studio located in Loehmann's Plaza at Briarcliff and North Druid Hills. They offer a variety of very reasonable payment options. Hope to see you there!
