What is it? Egyptian Belly Dance is for people of all shapes and sizes and is a great way to have fun whilst exercising. The origins of belly dance can be traced into the mists of time. Passed down from mother to daughter, it is still practised throughout the Middle East. Predominately a social dance, it has been elevated to a highly technical art form by the top professional dancers. In this beginner’s Egyptian belly dance class, you will work on the basic repertoire of moves. You will identify muscles to help control moves and focus on overall posture. Through the term you will start to link moves together into combinations, culminating in a fun piece of choreography. A different range of moves / combinations is used each term relevant to the style of music. Learning technique is fun - most of which can be applied to the dancefloor wherever you are! A fun social class designed to equip you with all the basic moves through a twelve month period.

Who is it for? Anyone aged 16+ who is new to Egyptian belly dance

What should I wear? Something loose and comfortable: leggings, elasticated skirt - nothing too restrictive. Bare feet so no need to worry about footwear.

What do I need to bring? A scarf to tie round your hips (optional). The teacher cannot provide spares for students to use currently due to contamination risks.

Studio classes must follow social distancing rules, please keep a 2 metre distance where possible. Due to reduced capacity studio class tickets are very limited. This is a hybrid class. Some people will be taking part in the studio with social distancing, while some will be taking part at home via Zoom. There will be a camera and screen in the studio live streaming the class into Zoom participants’ homes.

Masks must be worn around the Dance City building. There is a possibility that you will be asked to keep your mask on during class. Go straight to your studio when you arrive. The café remains closed for now. Drinking fountains, lockers and showers are currently out of use to reduce risk of contamination. Please bring your own bottles of water, yoga mats, dance shoes and any other items as Dance City cannot supply these.
