Mini Sessions 

New offering! This year Desert Beats Belly Dance will offer 3-week mini sessions. Watch here or on our Facebook page for updates, or let us know if you'd like to be contacted with more information. 

Mini session topics and styles may include Fat Chance Belly Dance (FCBD, formerly ATS) style fast and slow classes, props, improvisation and choreography reviews. 

Dancers will be asked to register for mini-sessions as they come up, and are welcome to attend some or all as they wish. Some previous belly dance experience is recommended. Contact Melanie for more information.

Mini Session #1: November 15, 29, December 6 - Fat Chance Belly Dance style 7:00-8:30 pm

We will be reviewing both fast and slow FCBD styles and moves. We'll practice moves, transitions, zilling, formations, cues, and flow, and we will spend some time on sword for those who have them. Quinn and Melanie will work together to provide something for everyone - bellydancers new to FCBD are welcome to join and try it out while those with plenty of experience will have a chance to review, practice, and drill familiar moves. 

NOTE: Location for this mini session is at Pure Energy Dance Co., 3310 Fairlight Drive, Unit 1 (2nd floor)
