Veils will be available to borrow or purchase.
There’s a reason many belly dancers enter their stage with a veil. Whether it’s used as a frame for elegant turns and technique, twirls around the dancer’s body, creating beautiful shapes and lines, or simply floats behind as they travel, it’s both captivating and breathtaking to watch.
In this workshop, you will learn some basic veil technique and ways to pair it with belly dance movements, turns and traveling steps. We’ll put it all together in exciting combinations ideal for the veil and/or belly dance novice or those with beg/int. experience.
