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 a weekly class with professional dance teacher Eleanor at a super affordable price. For more info on Eleanor, visit We also sometimes meet on Monday evenings to practice for performances. 

We also plan Workshops, organise Socials, go to Haflas (dance parties), offer performance opportunities and much more!


Give it a go!

Our next Taster Session is on October 30th in ZICER 2.03 from 7.30 to 9 pm. Join us for a fun wokrshop/dance-alongs and performances by our troupe, the Raqs Stars! The taster is for free and will kick off the four-week intensive course for beginners (see below).
