BELLYDANCE
Saturday at 13:00

The sensual dance of the East where the mystical and hip movements form a great movement cocktail that strengthens back, core and self esteem. Bellydance dates back thousands of years ago and is welcoming to all sorts of body types. Margrét started bellydancing due to back problems and it opened up a whole new world (pun intended) of dancing and body positivity. We will go over the history of the dance, learn basic movements and learn a short choreography. 

How to dress: Clothes that don't limit your movements, barefoot or in socks. Margrét will bring coin belts for participants.

BURLESQUE

Saturday at 15:30

Burlesque is a sexy vintage dance style of cabaret and variety shows, that is becoming very popular again. Margrét is a pioneer of burlesque shows in Iceland and is a fonding member of Reykjavík Kabarett and Búkalú. The class is a boost for the self esteem, that is a promise! Let your inner dive out in a safe environment.  

Please note that since burlesque is an adult form of entertainment and striptease, this class is an 18+.

FAQ

Is it difficult to do two, even three classes in a row? If you are healty and have regular stamina, ou should be fine. The difficulty lies in keeping the focus. On the Friday we will dance and shake the week off. On the Saturday there is a 15 minute break between the classes to gain back focus and get some water and air between.  The Bellydance is not a cardio class, Beyoncé is a sweat class and the burlesque is easy on the body. When I bring classes such as these, the majority of people that attend are taking more than one class.

 

I am a horrible dancer with two left feet, will I be able to participate?  Oh yes, and perfect! My Speciality is teaching people just like you to find their coordination. If everyone was a great dancer, I'd be unemployed. And, you can fake it 'till you make it, and I will teach you how.

Is there an age limit? Children are very different. I'd say that people under 13 years of age might not enjoy the classes. I talk about pelvic movements, keggle mucles, abd sexual things. You are responsible for your kid and know what they can handle. The burlesque class is for people 18 years and up.
