Belly Dance classes in Kigali

With its roots in ATS® and American Cabaret, Hilde's style of Fusion Belly dance is a hybrid dance style, eclectically combining elements of street dance, flamenco and contemporary dance.

Using body isolations to express the music, the embodiment of the musical layers is key in this art form: from percussive to melodic. Contrasting dynamic movement from liquid undulations to sharp hip drops are characteristic to this unique style of dance.

Wednesday evening Fusion Belly Dance in Kigali

Upcoming course dates with Hilde Cannoodt: 20/2, 27/2, 6/3, 13/3

FUSION BELLY DANCE KIGALI new course starts 20th February 2019

7.30pm - 8.30pm: Fusion Belly Dance (all levels)

location: City Arts Kigali, nr 18, KG 672 street, Kimihurura, Kigali, Rwanda (Kings Hostel)

WHAT TO WEAR? Students can wear anything that makes them feel comfortable! A suggestion is wearing some fitted leggings with fitting tank top or T shirt and bringing a scarf to accentuate the hips. We dance barefoot so if you prefer to wear something on your feet, it is recommended to bring some soft dance shoes like ballet shoes. Even though traditional belly dance costuming often shows midrif, you do not have to show your midrif to take this class!

Fusion Belly Dance: Each week we will work on drills, isolation combos as well as travelling sequences to end with a short choreography that will be different each week. Each week we start with a warm up to prepare our bodies for the technique section of the class. Attention will be on safe dance practice, correct allignment, stylization,... This class is suitable for all levels, from beginner to advanced level dancers.

Course fee: 14k RWF for 4 week course, or 4k RWF for a drop in class, to be paid in cash at the beginning of the class. (for students booking for both Rwandan dance and Bellydance, the total fee for 4 weeks is 24k
