Christine YavenChristine Yaven (Jakarta) - Arms and Hands

Monday 16 December, 7-9pm in Ashfield

A flick of the wrist, a twist of the elbow, a sensual roll of the shoulder and subtle undulation of the fingers: combined, they add texture, depth and ornamentation to your dance.

In this workshop, students will learn techniques to soften and relax hand and arm movements while incorporating them naturally into their dance and style.

Christine Yaven is the principal of Bellydance Jakarta, Indonesia's premier bellydance school. She is an expert choreographer, and a knowledgable teacher who specialises in classic Egyptian style. Her workshops are always popular and have been highly recommended by previous students.


$45 per person. Discounts will apply to futher Summer Series workshops in January.
Payment can be made via bank deposit or cash to Inspire teachers (in class or at the Ladies Lounge).
