Special Power Belly Introduction Workshop

Schedule by appointment (or maybe there is room in this session.)
Belly Dance with Weight Belts
For fun, fantasy, freedom and fitness! All ages, shapes and walks of life are welcome!

This is a 90 -100 min private/semi lesson you arrange by appointment. During your session with the world renown Delilah of Visionary Dance Productions you will be introduced to the basic elements of the art of belly dance! She will show you how to shake, rattle and roll your belly and how to use all the basic gear: coin hip scarf, finger cymbals, and a dance veil ! Sound like fun?

In addition she will show you how to use her Power Belly Weight belt that will turn you into an exotic harem belly dancer in record time! It will also help you build bone, muscle, grace, balance and cardiovascular fitness. Another facet of belly dance is that it gives women a sense of independent physical control and self confidence. As your personal belly dance coach, Delilah will help you set goals and advise what classes are best for you.

Included in this class is the use of a weight belt, coin hip scarf , finger cymbals and dance veil. This is a great way to experience belly dance and see if it’s right for you. All ages and dimensions welcome! Belly dance is fun feminine exercise and a wonderful way to make friends.

Once you are introduced to this dance form you can go into Power Belly and enjoy our belly dance work out classes with Live Music Acompaniment on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:30 or attend any of our techniques courses.

Staff : Delilah, Laura Rose Dahlia, Bella and Erik

What should you wear? What ever you feel comfortable in. Yoga pants, leotards, cholies, sports bras, skirts, hip scarves, or costumes are fine. It’s up to you.

Power Belly Weight Belts: Weight belts are a element of the Power Belly format but not mandatory. We want to demonstrate different strokes for different folks. You can rent them for $5.

Power Belly The Class History

The summer of 2003 the first Power Belly Course was offered for 4 weeks before Delilah went on her 40 Days and 40 Nights East Coast Tour. Dancers loved it with or without weight belts, but for those who used weight belts, the results were amazing! We saw waistlines manifest. Dancers lost weight, inches, and got incredibly strong. So, we are going to do it again. Now we are proud to announce that the Power Belly Class is one of our most popular classes we offer. Jeannette, who attends both Tuesday and Thursday class gets the award for ‘Most Enthusiastic’! She told me the other day that she has not missed one class since that summer in 2003!

When we opened VDP Studio in 2004 we added the element of live music by Erik Brown: percussion, bass, cumbus, samples and found sounds as accompaniment to our courses. The live element gives us an added dimension to the total feeling of involvement in the dance. This is also the goal of Power Belly–– to move from the gut! We strive to engage the dancer emotionally through the discovery of the power in her belly!
