Belly dance is a Middle Eastern expressive dance, famous for its percussive movements and complex isolations of the torso and hips.
Its origins are said to lie in Egypt, however Bellydance can refer to a range of dances from the Middle East, North Africa, and surrounding areas such as Greece and Turkey.
Through this class we break down the foundations of Bellydance focusing on body isolation as well as both percussive and fluid movements, shimmies and vibrations.
Each week we focus on strengthening the foundations, with the eventual aim of joining movements together through combinations.
