This level will get you moving to the tribal groove, with an introduction to the fundamentals of tribal movement and partner work, isolations, & strength-building. We’ll get you dancing from the very first class! Geared toward the new student, but vital to continuing students for refinement, this class establishes a strong foundation for every dancer. Even if you have taken tribal and/or other bellydance classes before, this class will be instrumental in familiarizing students specifically with Deep Roots’ particular style.
Classes include a gentle warm-up, then we cover in detail one slow and one fast concept, and finally we work with transitions and partnering concepts. Students will need to purchase high quality student zils (finger cymbals), which can be found at Saroyan Mastercrafts–either Afghanis or Grecians are recommended.
Classes run in 6-week sessions throughout the year.

Deep Roots Dance offers weekly classes in ATS-based tribal and fusion bellydance classes in North Seattle, as well as workshops locally and around the US. Our curriculum has been developed over a decade of teaching women of all walks of life and experience levels. Instructor of the Year nominated teacher Sharon ‘Shay’ Moore believes in an integrated approach to learning, developing both mind and body through strong foundations and a “take your time” approach to learning and growing in the dance. Shay is known for her thorough and clear instruction, giving students of all levels opportunities to not only grow in their physical skill, but also their intellectual understanding of the dance format & history. Instructors strive to give individual attention, and students are encouraged to ask any and all questions throughout the class.
