Maui Belly Dance Classes

 

Lynette’s belly dance classes will focus on using a therapeutic approach to condition your body. Students will engage in a yoga infused warm up to prepare for the dynamic saucy movements to follow.  Lynette has extensive history working with body mechanics and medical therapy in her profession as an Occupational Therapist.  She will draw on more than 10 years of knowledge to incorporate this medical understanding of the body into her dance practice.

4 Week Fusion Belly Dance Classes with Lynette Day

Learn to coordinate, strengthen and condition your body to decrease the effects of the aging process and to increase self confidence and body image. 


Class description:


During this 4 week workshop series, you will learn to isolate muscle groups that you may have never felt work together before. We’ll start each class with Datura™ style movement studies to increase coordination and technique for belly dance. We’ll be incorporating finger cymbals into the movement as well. However, finger cymbals are optional, but they’ll be available for purchase during classes. 


We’ll learn saucy Maui Belly Groove combinations while moving to inspiring music. 


This series is catered to beginner and intermediate level students.

Belly Dance is therapeutic and it can decrease the effects of aging by enhancing the following skills

 

  • Endurance- the ability to sustain an activity over a period of time.

  • Posture- in a standing position the body is naturally, but not rigidly, straight, and that in a sitting position the back is comfortably straight. Good standing and sitting posture helps promote normal functioning of the body's organs and increases the efficiency of the muscles, thereby minimizing fatigue.

  • Balance- system of reflexes that maintains body stability, triggered by potentially destabilizing internal (within body) and external (acting on the body) forces

  • Vestibular System- The vestibular organ consists of the membranous saccule and utricle and semicircular canals. The semicircular canals contain balance end organs called cristae and the saccule and utricle contain similar end organs called maculae. The organ is essential in the maintenance of balance.

  • Proprioception- The subconscious sensation of body and limb movement and position, obtained from non-visual sensory input from muscle spindles and joint capsules

  • Coordination- the harmonious working together, especially of several muscles or muscle groups in the execution of complicated movements.

  • Strength-ability to exert force against resistance.

  • Flexibility- The range of movement around a joint; dependent on a number of factors, including the size and shape of the bones, the ability of tendons to stretch, the condition of the ligaments, normal joint mechanics, soft tissue mobility and extensibility of the muscles.

  • Agility- the ability to accelerate, decelerate, stabilize, and change directions quickly while maintaining proper body posture.
