Karima NadiraMonday: 6:30-8:00 Basics for Learning & Strengthening Technique: Morocco’s very carefully designed barre / warmup using Oriental dance’s fundamental movement vocabulary in an easy to understand format. The movements are broken down into bite-sized pieces, so you don’t choke on them. This warmup / barre starts every Oriental dance class here, so that the “alphabet” of this wonderful dance becomes second nature to our students. Beginner to Advanced. (Karima Nadira)

Wednesday: 6:30-8:00 Intermediate/Advanced: Technique & Choreography (Karima Nadira)
