New Classes available at the Oneonta Taekwon-do Do-Jang

We are proud to announce the addition of 4 classes being taught here at 12 South Main Street. Daniel Blacklock, Caroline Chronowski, and Patti Virasi have offered to begin teaching new classes in our space.

This is great news for our students because all classes are FREE to Oneonta Taekwon-do students.

This is also helpful to us in terms of attracting new students. Most of our new students claim that “driving by and seeing the sign” is what made them come in. More foot traffic = more new students.

Please take a moment to think of someone you know who might be interested in these classes and email them the link to this web page!

Beginner Belly Dancing

Classes blend traditional bellydance movements from a variety of cultures and styles, including American Tribal, Egyptian, and Fusion. By practicing isolations, steps, stretches and technical drills, the dancer will develop strength, flexibility, coordination, balance and proper body alignment.

While the focus is on toning and strengthening the core muscles, all areas of the body are included and will benefit from the bellydance workout.

Students will learn to dance to authentic middle eastern and fusion music while playing finger cymbals (zils). In addition, they will have an opportunity to study traditional bellydance drum rhythms and costuming along with more modern styles of dress and dance.

Begins: July 1, 2009

Time: Wednesdays 7:15-8:15pm

Cost: $10 per class.

Yoga Trance Dance

Yoga Trance Dance is an exploration of the eternal flow of natural movement through yoga.

Beginning with sahaja prana yoga or the experience of prana initiating yogasanas, Yoga Trance Dance flows into an exploration of free-form, breath driven movement to liberate one’s creative life-force and cultivate embodied freedom.

Class participants are guided through the exercise using the CD by Shiva Rea. Learn more at the Shiva Rea Website.
