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. This intermediate Egyptian belly dance class builds on the technique learnt in the beginner’s class. You increase your range of moves and learn more about the context, music and background. Most terms you work towards a piece of choreography, each term the technique involved varies as does the style of dance and style of music used. 'fun but focused’ describes this class

Who is it for?
Anyone aged 16+ who has mastered the basics in the Level one class and wants to take it further.

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?
Your own hip scarf. If Kay works with a prop there may be some spares however students are expected to acquire their own.
