Drum Solo Bellydance Choreography
Oreet will be teaching her award-winning drum solo choreography from the Bellydancer of Year competition. The choreography is a unique and modern twist on an Egyptian style drum solo using space, turns and accents. For the intermediate to pro dancer.

Yemeni/Israeli Pop Bellydance Choreography
Want to learn how Mizrahi Jews (Arabic Jews) dance at a social gathering? Learn key movements and stylizations that make this style of bellydance unique. You’ll experience traditional with modern and a whole lot more! For the beginner to pro dancer.

“Oreet is full of energy and teaches her class with the same style and enthusiasm that she dances with, which I would describe as a fusion of Egyptian (classic and contemporary), with some earthy folk, and cabaret moves. There really is a little something for everyone in her class, which I highly recommend for the belly dance enthusiast!” – Shakila
