The origins of Belly Dance are veiled in mystery with experts suggesting it is the oldest form of dance.
Largely forgotten, or relegated to the category of dying folk art in the 80s and 90s, it shot into global prominence when Shakira championed it in her music videos, in a dazzling display of flowing, sinuous movements and shimmies. The world was captivated, not only by its artistry, but by its inherent health benefits. Not only is it electrifying to watch, but it is one of the best low-impact work-outs there is; a means of improving posture, balance and co-ordination, not to mention a springboard towards poise and grace on the part of its students.
So, whether you see yourself as a wallflower or snaked-hipped diva, the school’s fun-filled classes will have your hips sashaying and your toes tapping; the calories burning away before you can say “shimmy”. Before you know it, you’ll be showing off your new moves to all and sundry.
Through regular attendance you will benefit from increased stamina, strength in your core muscles and improved flexibility, as well as some superb dance routines. Our format and lesson plan is innovative, target-driven and dynamic.
And don’t worry about having to splash out on harem pants and sequined bras – comfy clothes and non-slip shoes are all you need in the first instance. The sequins and sexy gear comes later, but only if you feel so inspired!
