This Beginner Series is designed for students new to bellydance or those seeking a bellydance refresher. Dancers with little to no dance experience are welcome. Each week students will move through a warm up, drills, technique and a combination designed to build a strong foundation of the dance. Bellydance is a fun and challenging workout, can help develop greater body awareness and core strength, and offers students a chance to move creatively while increasing confidence and connecting with other women in a supportive space.

Alexis Bio:
My lifelong passion for dance started at age four at my local dance studio, and has grown into something unexpected yet, perfectly suited to me. After years of studying ballet, jazz, tap, and modern dance I had the opportunity to teach at my local studio, and from there, quickly realized my enthusiasm towards sharing this art form with others. I continued to dance in college, studying aerial dance and performing with the UNH Dance Company, and earned my B.A. in sociology with a minor in dance. It was this time that I also started my yoga practice, and have since completed a 200 hour Vinyasa Yoga teacher training and 95-hour Kids Yoga training. After relocating to Portland, I started training with former Arabesque Dance Company (Toronto) member in Egyptian style bellydance and shortly thereafter joined her troupe, Sundari Dance Company. Following a knee injury and and a year of not dancing, this subtle and more gentle way of moving naturally resonated with me, and I was immediately hooked! I now study with Ruby of Vancouver and perform regularly throughout the Portland area, including Marrakesh Restaurant. In 2014, I had the great pleasure of being one of ten groups to participate in the Beaverton Arts Commission's Ten Tiny Dances production with Sundari. In 2015, I completed 40 hours of training in Egyptian dance with Sahra Saeeda. I am dedicated to, and look forward to continuing my studies of bellydance, and other dance forms, and sharing this beautiful dance with others
