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 practiced 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.

Who is it for? Anyone aged 16+

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? Bottle of water. A scarf to tie round your hips (optional)
