This is the schedule for the month of December, plus what is coming in January. Also, a Dancer Shop and Swap is in the works for end of January or the beginning of February. Stay tuned for more details!
December classes:
• Tuesday’s Level 2 and Level 1 classes run through December 16, with an extra “drills-only class” (one per level) scheduled for December 23 as a makeup for a missed/canceled November class. If you paid for the session or the month in November, then the class on December 23rd is no charge. You may also attend the class on December 23rd as a drop-in or punch-card participant if you were not a monthly- or session-based student in November.

• Sunday’s 3:30pm Level 3 will only meet December 7 and 14.

• Sunday’s 2pm Bhangra class is on all month long! That’s right, no breaks! Come and sweat and laugh out any of those extra treats or stressors you might be enduring during the busy holidays.

New Year schedule:

• Level 1 Tribal Style Improv starts with a brand new eight-week session on Tuesday, January 6th. Bring a friend who had never come to class and get $10 each off the registration fees!

• Level 2 Tribal Style Improv will also resume on Tuesday, January 6th. Early bird can be paid at Bhangra on Dec 28 or online the last week of December.

• Level 3 Tribal Style Improv / Performance Prep will start Sunday January 4th.

• Bhangra / Bollywood will start Sunday January 4th. For the new year this class will be part workout and part choreography in order to prepare for the upcoming performance season. Participation in performances is not required to attend our classes. New students are welcome to join us!

• New class starting Thursday, January 15th – tribal style group basket dance. This 14-class choreography-based session will cover techniques and a choreography to be used in the upcoming performance season (baskets will be provided for use and may be purchased if you wish!). Participation in performances is not required to attend our classes, however we do ask you commit to the full four months (Jan – Apr). Students should have at least one year of belly dance technique or have been moved to Level 2 in my ITS classes. Please ask if you are not sure!

• Possible class starting Thursday, January 15th – Yoga for Dancers – please RSVP if you would like to see this added to the schedule!
