After all the feasting on November and December IN Days, International Neighbors will get moving, shaking and shimmying on January IN Day. Come and try an ancient and graceful dance form that has been practiced for thousands of years. Belly dance is a delightful way to express yourself, fully and joyfully! It is gentle on the joints, perfect for core strength and suitable for all ages and fitness levels. Belly dance technique is defined by circular motions and flexibility of the shoulders and hips. Pauline Costianes, co-director of Ta’amullat Dance Troupe of Ann Arbor, will show us the basic moves in a fun, supportive environment. Ta’amullat Dance Troupe is Michigan’s first founded and longest running folkloric dance troupe performing folk dances from a wide geography including the Middle East, Balkans, North Africa and Central Asia.
