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 (£4 for 1.5 hours!) 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 last Taster Session was on October 10th in the Blue Bar UEA and was an absolute blast. We combined it with a Hafla (a bellydance party) and had lots of fun learning different dance moves and combining them to a dance. We also saw great performances by members of the society and our dance teacher. Keep your eyes open for news on the next taster!
