Come sway, shimmy and jingle with Gina Capossela as she teaches you basic beginner Belly Dancing moves and creates an entire dance just for you.  Belly dancing favors all shapes, sizes, ages, genders and ability levels – and no – you don’t have to show your belly! Gina will have coin hip scarves for all participants to wear. No special clothing is required. Just bring a smile and Gina will turn you into a belly dancer within one hour. 

Gina has a Master’s Degree in Dance and Master’s Degree in Social Work. She teaches Middle Eastern and American Belly Dance full-time and has taught in the Upper Valley for 15 years. Her dance company, The Raqs Salaam Dance Theater, is a favorite in regional shows, fairs and festivals, including their annual showcase at the Lebanon Opera House.
