We are honored to be collaborating with Bryan Bowman for our class series at Art in Motion Pittsburgh

Whether you’re a seasoned pro or still shaking in your skirt contemplating your first live drummer performance, this session is designed to introduce you to the typical rhythms you will encounter in bellydance music. From easy tricks to quickly identify rhythms on the fly, to communications between drummer and dancer, we’ll spend our time answering the questions you never get the chance to ask and dialogue about what a live performance feels like from both sides of the equation.

Classes will begin with a discussion of the rhythms to be covered, a warm up, technique drills, combos set to the rhythms of the week, both stationary and traveling, with and without zills.

Come dance with us! Class registration is $55 for 1 month (4 classes) or $15 drop ins. Some experience required.

BIO: Bryan Bowman currently plays with Pittsburgh’s own Ishtar bellydance band, and has performed up and down the east coast with dozens of major names in the dance world over the past decade. On doumbek, riq, or frame drum, he can point out the rhythm differences and cue techniques that will help you understand the conversation between dancer and drummer.
