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 advanced class assumes a solid knowledge of Belly Dance basics, the ability to combine moves and a desire to push yourself further. The class focusses on refining and developing your belly dance moves, as well as focusing on posture and flow. Choreographies are more complex and there is some solo work through the term. This class focusses on developing the skills of a solo dancer through complex group choreography, drilling, advanced technique and solo work.

Who is it for?
Anyone aged 16+ who has mastered the intermediate and wants to work on solo work and choreography

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?
This will depend on what is being worked on for the term. At this level, if props are used you are expected to acquire your own.
