Bellydance

Join

Please log in to join this organisation.

Whether you’ve never danced before or have been dancing for years, we welcome everyone to join us in dancing to oriental rhythms. This beautiful dance style is focused on torso and hip articulations and alternates between soft motions and sharp accents and shimmies. Gain greater body control and learn to transition between moves with fluidity and elegance. Belly dancing is a soft form of exercise, enhancing your flexibility and strengthening your upper body. It is fun and never fails to lift your spirits!

We have two weekly classes with professional dance teacher Eleanor at a super affordable price (for more info on Eleanor, visit www.eleanorbellydances.com) and also meet on Mondays for an additional practice session. 

We also plan workshops, organise socials, go to haflas (dance parties), offer performance opportunities and much more!

 

Give it a go!

Our next taster is on January 17, 2018 from 5.15 - 6.15pm in ZICER 2.03. It will be led by our dance teacher Eleanor and is always fun! The last taster was a huge success and our classes are full. We booked an even bigger room this time, so bring your friends and come along to dance!
