Friday, June 24: 3:30-5:30 pm: Tremendous Turkish Technique!

Curious about what Turkish Oryantal style Bellydance is? Learn the quintessential moves and stylizations, how to distinguish the music and basic rhythms, the history of Turkish Bellydance, and add onto your existing knowledge of Bellydance moves with the singular style that is Turkish. Bear in mind, this is not Gypsy, Rom, or Folkloric Turkish, but rather a blending of those with Arabic dance. There's gonna be a lot of hip twisting fun!
Skill level: Continuing beginner on up.

Jamie Lynn at the Austin Belly Dance Convention

Jamie Lynn began her Bellydance journey with the inadvertent discovery of Middle Eastern Music. This love of the music has been the driving force behind her continual research into the history, culture, and art of Bellydance. With her background as a visual artist, the ability to eloquently express a culture’s music in dance has inspired her for the last two decades. Jamie Lynn teaches weekly classes and workshops and is co-producer of Bahaia’s Dance Camp – a dance retreat in the Texas Hill County. She was featured on National TV in AMC’s Showville and will be releasing a DVD this year.
